Limbaugh announced his Stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis back in October of last year, according to NPR.
“Rush encouraged so many of us to think for ourselves. To learn and to lead. He often said it did not matter where you started or what you look like, as Americans we all have endless opportunities like nowhere else in the world,” said Kathryn Limbaugh during her announcement on Wednesday.
