Renowned comedian, Kathy Griffin, is facing a new health struggle — something she reveals she was shocked about after she was diagnosed.
“I was definitely in shock. I’m still a little bit in shock — not denial,”
In a statement she released on Twitter, the comedian revealed that she has been diagnosed with lung cancer. She also revealed that she has never smoked but she has lung cancer.
“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!”
“The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung.”
