American actress and comedian Kathy Griffin (60) is perhaps best known for her bubbly personality and jolly fun, aside from the many controversial statements she’s made throughout her career.
But now the star can convey a much more somber message to her followers.
– I have never smoked
In a candid post on Twitter, Griffin reveals that he has lung cancer.
– I need to tell you something. i have cancer i am about to have surgery to remove half of my left lung. Yes, although I have never smoked, I have lung cancer, the star opens.
He adds that the future still looks bright and that the period of illness will hopefully be short-lived.
– Doctors are very optimistic because it is the first stage and it remains in my left lung. I hope after this there will be no chemotherapy and radiation therapy and breathing will work normally. I should be back again in a month or less, she writes more.
Griffin adds that the outcome could have been very different had he not been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
As a result, he calls out to fans:
– Please go to regular doctor visits. It could save their life.
But this isn’t the star’s first encounter with the tragic illness.
In 2014, her older brother died at the age of 63 after a long battle with cancer. In 2017, the 60-year-old shaved all her hair in honor of her sister, who also fought cancer for her life.
Griffin got his breakthrough in the ’90s when he got a half-hour stand-up show on the American media house HBO. During this time, she starred in the TV series “Suddenly Susan” with Brooke Shields (56).
The comedian can also be seen in previous film and television successes, such as one of the voices in “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Seinfeld,” and “Pulp Fiction.”
In addition to being a movie star and comedian, she’s a champion in the LGBTQ+ community and several times she’s fallen for famous faces, including former US First Lady Melania Trump (51).
There is little doubt that the 60-year-old player occasionally performs controversial tricks.
Griffin has garnered attention several times throughout his career. In 2017, he lost his job at CNN after, among other things, retaining a fake, detached head of former US President Donald Trump (75).
Many reacted sharply to Griffin’s Twitter stunt. In retrospect, he regretted it and deleted his Twitter profile. However, he posted a video where he regrets crossing the line.
Griffin said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that he received death threats after the controversial stunt.
