Kathy Griffin revealed that she has lung cancer.
The comedian, 60, shared the news today on coal media,
“I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer.
I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed. Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked!”
She added that her cancer is in Stage 1 and her doctors are
“Hopefully no chemo or radiation after this and I should have normal function with my breathing. I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It’s been a helluva 4 years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh and entertaining you, but I’m gonna be just fine.”
In her tweet, she noted that her condition could have been more serious had she not been “fully vaccinated” against COVID.
“Of course I am fully vaccinated for Covid. The consequences for being unvaccinated would have been even more serious.
Please stay up to date on your medical check ups. It’ll save your life.”
We’re pulling for you Kathy, without our Joan we need your “no holes barred” take on life more than ever.
