It would be the strongest deterrent and the ultimate stop smoking message. Lung cancer is really awful. Of the deaths I have seen, it is be far the worst.

I pray for Rush and for all who suffer and for all of their caregivers as well.
Totally agree, watched my father die of lung cancer and have a couple of friends going through it now, all smokers. Wishing the best for Rush.

I have listened to Rush for many years and agree with the majority of his opinions. My wife has never smoked and is currently battling lung cancer the treatment plans have improved and I will pray for a recovery.

I wonder how Rush would answer some of the concerns people have. He probably had the same train of thought that many of us did, that we are invincible and that smoking anything won't get us, it will get the other person. There are Youtube Videos with Rush cranking on a Gigantic C-Gar. I'll bet he wishes he had that puffing as a do over.

There but for the Grace Of God Go I. I feel sorry for him and his family. He appears to be a fighter and I don't know the odds but still wish him the best.

I've got one pal in The Villages fighting this from our Forum and my Best Friend back home who has been on experimental drugs for 3 years. He was supposed to only last 4-5 months so almost 3 - 1/2 years so far and he just told them to stop the medicine. He's sick of fighting the battle. Same as me Marlboro Man for over 40 years. How many times people pleaded with both of us to quit but NOOOOO! We had to be know it all's and still puff. Just a dopey decision. Wish we all had a Mulligan on this one. I talk to him everyday and his attitude has to have part of what has kept him going. He's living each day to the fullest.

I talk about not smoking to the Grandkids every chance I have. They never saw me Smoke.

We are all mortal. Most of us think about it more than we used to. A lot more than we used to.

May all people no matter where and who they are, who are very sick and facing death, have love around them.

I had several friends and family member gone because of cigarettes. They all said on their last breath if I just hadn’t of smoked. But even with they lungs burnt out and on oxygen they still puffed away.

Many posts have been deleted because some members have redirected the thread into their personal conflict. The topic of the thread is Rush Limbaugh’s reported illness. If the discussion strays from that again, the thread will be closed.

I agree. His remarks over the years have been overwhelmingly racist and hateful. But he is sick, and I don't wish that on anyone.

Amazing, lots of people don’t listen to him, but they know what other sources says he said and repeat few words taken out of context. We believe what we want, nothing going to change that.

I've listened to him for many, many hours...for over 20 years.

He has unequivocally led the charge with..."overwhelmingly racist and hateful comments."

I do agree though, that people only believe..."what they want."
