On Monday, Rush Limbaugh shared some sad news with his audience. He says he's just been diagnosed with lung cancer, and it's in an advanced stage.

According to Rush, his scheduled cancer treatments will mean taking time off from his show. He admitted there will be times when he physically won't be able to host due to the treatments. Rush says he's going to keep working as long as he can.

Rush says he first noticed something was wrong on his 69th birthday last month. He says he thought about not telling anyone but didn't want to set off rumors when he started missing shows. The diagnosis was confirmed by two medical institutions.

Before finishing his show, he told his listeners, "every day I'm not here I'll be thinking about you and missing you."
