BREAKING Kathy Griffin Says She Has Lung Cancer, Will Have Half of Left Lung Removed Today in Surgery


Comedian and actress Kathy Griffin has just dropped a bombshell on Twitter: she has lung cancer. And she’s about to have half her left lung removed in surgery.

Griffin says she never smoked. We are sending prayers and love to her. Kathy is a delight and I know she will beat this!

She says in her note that the last four years have been rough. She got into trouble and was briefly “cancelled” for posting a decapitated, bloodied head of Donald Trump to social media. It was very funny but not to Trump supporters. Happily, Kathy came back from that debacle. But this is a gut punch. Again, send prayers and light and love, consult all experts with the universe. I know that the spirit of Joan Rivers is watching over from heaven!
