Charles Krauthammer Reveals He Has Weeks to Live in Heartbreaking Letter to Colleagues
Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer, 68, revealed he has weeks to live in a heartbreaking letter to colleagues.
Krauthammer overcame many obstacles in life, including a diving accident when he was in college that left him a quadriplegic.
The “Special Report” star went on to graduate from Harvard Medical school in 1975 and even won a Pulitzer-Prize.
Charles Krauthammer was missing from the network for nearly a year battling cancer.
Unfortunately the cancer returned in a very aggressive form; Fox News released Krauthammer’s letter Friday morning revealing he has weeks to live.
Fox News reported:
Charles Krauthammer, the beloved and brilliant Fox News Channel personality who gave up a pioneering career in psychiatry to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst, on Friday revealed the heartbreaking news that he is in the final stages of a losing battle with cancer.
“I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months,” the letter began. “I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.”
“However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned,” Krauthammer wrote. “There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.”
“I leave this life with no regrets,” Krauthammer wrote. “It was a wonderful life – full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”
