Rush Limbaugh is still struggling with lung cancer and he delivered an emotional sign-off to listeners and fans this week for his final show of 2020.
He used the opportunity to remind people that he will not be able to do his show forever.
He reminded people that he has not even expected to live this long.

Rush Limbaugh gives emotional signoff during pre-Christmas show
Limbaugh, who first announced his lung cancer diagnosis in February, told listeners in October that despite some early success fighting the disease, more recent scans show the cancer was “going in the wrong direction.”
“Stage 4 is, as they say, terminal,” Limbaugh said.
As he signed his show off the day before Christmas Eve, Limbaugh said he wasn’t sure how much longer he would be able to continue his program.
“So many people think this program has changed their lives for the better. You have no idea how much you’ve meant to me and my family,” Limbaugh said. “The day is going to come, folks, where I’m not going to be able to do this. I don’t know when that is. I want to be able to do it for as long as I want to do it, but the day will come where I’m not going to be able to, and I want you to understand that even when the day comes, I’d like to be here.”
Limbaugh said that, in the meantime, he wants to show his listeners how much he appreciates them.
“Because I have this sense of needing to constantly show my appreciation for all that you have done and meant to me,” Limbaugh said. “So, I hope you all have a great Christmas, a great New Year, and I hope that the things that are in store for all of us in the coming year are certainly better than what we’ve endured in 2020.”
