Kathy Griffin revealed today that she has lung cancer. The 60 year old comedian made the announcement on Instagram adding that she has never smoked.
Here's what she said in part: “I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer. I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed. Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked.
She added that her cancer is Stage 1, contained to her left lung, and her doctors are "very optimistic."
She said she shouldn't need chemo or radiation and should have normal function with her breathing, and should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. She said she's "gonna be just fine."
The red head said she is vaccinated against covid, and the consequences for being unvaccinated would have been even more serious.
Good luck Kathy Griffin.
