(PatriotWise.com)- Rush Limbaugh’s producer announced that the legendary conservative radio host, who hasn’t been on air since February 2, would be missing his Wednesday program as he continues his battle with cancer. Limbaugh has long said that there will be days, even weeks, when he is unable to host his show as he continues his struggle with terminal cancer.
Limbaugh’s producer, James Golden, told Rush listeners that his prayers are with Rush “as he continues to fight the illness he is afflicted with.
Golden, who is better known as Bo Snerdley, said that they are “still praying for a remission.”
Our prayers are with Rush as he continues to fight the illness he as been afflicted with. We are still praying for a remission. Today @KenMatthews will fill in for Rush. Thanks for all of your prayers, kind words and wishes for our Rush. God Bless you.

“Today @KenMatthews will fill in for Rush,” he added. “Thanks for all your prayers, kind words and wishes for our Rush. God Bless you.”
Limbaugh was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer in January 2020. He famously received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald Trump and was awarded the medal by First Lady Melania Trump during the State of the Union Address.

Limbaugh was also absent from his shown on Thursday.
In February last year, Limbaugh announced the news of his cancer diagnosis.
“I wish I didn’t have to tell you this and I thought about not telling anybody…I thought about trying to do this without anybody knowing ‘cause I don’t like making things about me,” he said.
“This has happened and my intention is to come here every day I can and to do this program as normally and as competently and as expertly as I do each and every day, because that is the source of my greatest satisfaction, professionally, personally,” he added.
No word on when Limbaugh will return to the show, but we’re sure our readers will join with his listeners in wishing him well as he battles this disease.
