Conservative commentator Dan Bongino thanked fans who sent him supportive messages amid his battle with cancer, and assured them that he will be “A-OK.”
“It’s been tough,” Bongino admitted during a Friday interview with “Fox & Friends.” He added, “I’m tired. The chemo’s rough. You got to get through it with a bit of a sense of humor, though.” He joked that he gave chemotherapy zero stars on Amazon and two thumbs down on Yelp.
“But it definitely works,” Bongino continued, adding that he hopes to receive his last chemotherapy treatment next Tuesday and plans to be substitute for Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.
Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, then thanked his supporters, saying, “Thank you specifically to all of the viewers out there on Fox. I get your emails, I read all of your social media posts, and, really, it’s been heartwarming.”
“I will be A-OK, though,” Bongino told his fans. “I promise you. My prognosis is really good.”
Bongino gave a shout-out to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which he said took out his tumor. “Brilliant people,” Bongino said. “We have the best medical system in the world. And all the doctors out there caring for people during this season, thank you. And thanks to everyone who’s been caring for me, too. It’s been amazing.”
Bongino also mentioned radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has likewise faced a cancer diagnosis this year. “God bless him and his struggle, too, and everyone out there struggling with this awful disease,” Bongino said.
