Conservative star Dan Bongino reveals cancer diagnosis

Conservative political commentator and outspoken Trump supporter Dan Bongino announced on Friday that he has been diagnosed with cancer after doctors discovered a tumor in his neck last month.

Bongino, who frequently appears on Fox News, told fans on Friday that he “did get a diagnosis yesterday from my doctor. … Unfortunately, it is cancer. It’s lymphoma, the Hodgkin’s type. But it is treatable.”

Bongino first alerted his fans to the possibility of a cancer diagnosis in September, after revealing that concerned audience-members had alerted him about what appeared to be an abnormal growth on his neck.

After seeking medical attention in late September, Bongino told fans that the doctors had found a tumor near his vocal cords.

“It’s a tumor, but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous,” Bongino told his fans at the time, adding that his medical team believed there was a strong chance that it wasn’t cancerous. “It’s in a very weird spot in my neck near my carotid artery, near vocal cords and things, and it is big. It’s 7 centimeters … It’s scary.”

The tumor was successfully removed earlier this month, though Bongino tweeted on October 7 that he had received “bad news” that it “looks like lymphoma.”

“I do have cancer, and that is hard for me to say,” the 45-year-old said on Friday. “But we’ll be OK, and I am optimistic. That’s not some act I’m putting on for the show.”

Bongino served as a Secret Service agent during the Obama administration before retiring to run for public office. After several unsuccessful attempts, Bongino began hosting the Dan Bongino Show, a popular weekday podcast in which he discusses relevant political happenings.

Bongino also recently launched the Bongino Report, a competitor to the now-liberal Drudge Report, a news aggregation site that played a major role in Donald Trump’s election in 2016. A vocal critic of the mainstream media and the so-called “deep state,” Bongino has dedicated much energy to exposing the Obama administration’s interference in the 2016 election.

So, so sorry Dan Bongino that you found out that what you had operated on was actually verified as cancer. My family is praying for you for a full recovery. You are a very strong man, and everyone knows that you will come through it well. Keep good thoughts in your mind and it will defintely go away. Positivity is a cure for cancer!

Very much praying for you, Dan! You are our Conservative source for news! I pray you come through with flying colors! YES, there are conservatives in Oregon and we want to rout all of these career politicians elected years ago as liberals! Liberals have had their opportunity to shine and haven’t! Time for new Conservative blood in those positions!
Blessings for you and your family!

The cure is God, not positivety.
Everything that happens is part
of Gods plan, else it could not
happen. God has a purpose
for this. I do not know what
that purpose is in this case.
But I do not want to short
change Dan of any benefits
that can accrue in this trial.
So, my prayer is that God’s
purpose be fully
accomplished. Yet I also
pray that Dan fully recover,
but with the attitude of:
The Lord’s Will be done,
not my will.

Dan, I am so sorry for your news that it is cancer. God can heal you though, and we will trust for His healing through the doctors. I love it when I see you on TV – you’re always so “right on” and we hope you’ll be able to be on even though you will be on treatment. God bless you – will be praying for you.

I hope he knows that his listeners are praying for him and his family. I love listening to him every weekday, right after Rush Limbaugh. I get 4 hours of conservative common sense, and that way I know whats happening in our Great Country.

You will be fine. Your book, “Exonerated“, rocks. All should read!

You are confident and energetic and that is the key to kicking these things. Confidence and faith make a huge difference, so keep the spirit and you’ve got it made and look forward to seeing you again soon. I saw you at a book store in Fl a couple of months ago and have a memorable pic with you.

There is always a good reason why things happen. Scripture tells us that in Paul’s letter to the Romans…chapter 8 verses 28 and 29…To help conform us to the image of His Son…May this be true to for you, Dan.

As a person who went through the exact same events I can give you some encouraging news. After going through Chemo for my Non Hodgins Lymphoma diagnosis 4 years afterwards my oncologist said on a check up that it was as if I never had it! I got it when I was 63 years old. God isn’t done with me yet or the place Jesus has prepared for me isn’t ready yet? 😉 I will pray God will give you a quick recovery.

Praying for you brother. I had cancer 10 years ago and I see my doctor once every year for a check-up.
I took radiation for 45 treatments, I am now 85 years old and still working and going strong. I and God know that you can beat this. Keep up the good work. I will add your name to our church prayer list so hundreds of others will also lift you in prayer.

We are so sorry to hear about your diagnosis of lymphoma. Our prayers are with you. I will share that I had Lymphoma back in 1983 at the age 0f 39 at a very serious level and by the grace of God and wonderful doctors I was saved, and am still going strong. My mantra was “I am strong, I am positive”, even if I had to march in place like a soldier when I was by myself repeating that over and over again. Someone sent me this quote and I don’t know who said it, but it runs thru my veins every day and I am happy to share it with you. “I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful and too determined to be defeated.”
Best wishes for a successful recovery.

Jesus alone is the only mediator
between God and man.
Mary is not co-redeemer. She
had a sin nature and was in need
of a Savior just like you and me.
And she knew it, even if Catholics
don’t. Learn to study the Bible
yourself, instead of trusting the
blind Popes.

I recently had my pancreas and spleen removed due to cancer. Doing ok now, just slowed way down.
I pray for you.
Keep positive, and read at least 2 good jokes, and some comics every day. It helps. It really does.

Oh! Almost forgot, St. Perrigrin is the patron saint of cancer victims.

Is that all you have to offer: “be positive,
and read jokes and comics, and depend
on a dead person” to help?
That is humanism. That is exalting self,
and expecting that you personally can
do it all.
Where is faith in God?
