Fox News Icon Charles Krauthammer Says He Only Has Weeks to Live in Heartbreaking Letter

 

I WILL TRULY MISS YOU CHARLES …

Today is a sad, sad day. We learned this morning that Charles Krauthammer has only weeks to live and that his cancer has returned. Krauthammer stated in a heartbreaking letter, that can be red below, that he had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.  Krauthammer said, “This is the final verdict. My fight is over.” As I read through the letter, tears hit my keyboard as Charles was truly a remarkable man. It breaks my heart that such an amazing man, who has battled cancer and so many other obstacles in his life, will be leaving us. Charles Krauthammer was always the smartest man in the room and his honest debate was educational whether you agreed with him or not. In what might be one of the most graceful things Charles has ever penned as he has lost his battle with cancer, “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.” You will be so missed.

Charles Krauthammer’s heartbreaking letter:

June 8, 2018 I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.

In August of last year, I underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in my abdomen. That operation was thought to have been a success, but it caused a cascade of secondary complications which I have been fighting in hospital ever since. It was a long and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health.

However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.

I wish to thank my doctors and caregivers, whose efforts have been magnificent. My dear friends, who have given me a lifetime of memories and whose support has sustained me through these difficult months. And all of my partners at The Washington Post, Fox News, and Crown Publishing. Lastly, I thank my colleagues, my readers, and my viewers, who have made my career possible and given consequence to my life’s work. I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking. I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny.

I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.
