Fox News contributor Dan Bongino says he has been diagnosed with a tumor, HITC reports.
Several figures, including former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have reached out to Bongino to offer their support. “Very sorry to hear this. Keeping you in our prayers!” Sanders tweeted.
The diagnosis was reportedly confirmed by an MRI scan. Bongino made the announcement on Wednesday during his show.
“It’s a tumor but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous,” he said, according to Rumble. “We don’t know what it is. It’s in a very weird spot, my neck, near vocal cords and it’s big. It’s seven centimeters. It’s scary.”
The show must go on
Despite this scary news, Bongino says he is committed to continuing his show and talking about the issues affecting the nation as the election draws nearer. “This is too important a time to be pussyfooting around. Gotta get on the air,” Bongino said, according to the Washington Examiner.
With the state of the nation in flux and unprecedented events seeming to occur every day, voices like Bongino’s do a lot of good.
The 45-year-old has been through a lot, however. He served as a police officer with the NYPD from 1995 to 1999 when he left to join the Secret Service.
Nowadays, Bongino is committed to continuing on as long as possible — and if his past experience is any indicator, he has what it takes to weather any challenge thrown his way. “We have two lives,” he said this week, quoting American novelist Bernard Malamud. “The life we learn with and the life we live after that, and the genuine path to happiness is through suffering.”
As for Bongino’s audience, they can expect an update over the weekend. Bongino is traveling to New York on Friday to get more information on his condition.
Necessary and cherished voices
Conservative figures like Dan Bongino and Rush Limbaugh are important, as they continue to broadcast the truth to people who might otherwise never hear certain information.
Limbaugh, for his part, has been fighting lung cancer and, like Bongino, has vowed to continue his show as long as it was medically possible for him. Both figures recognize the importance of their jobs at such politically volatile times.
The truth matters, and we need to cherish those who work so hard to spread the truth while we still can.
