“I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer,” the 60-year-old tweeted on Monday, August 2. “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!”

She continued, “The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung. Hopefully, no chemo or radiation after this, and I should have normal function with my breathing. I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It’s been a helluva four years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh and entertaining you, but I’m gonna be just fine.”
Kathy also encouraged others to go to their doctors. “Please stay up to date on your medical checkups. It’ll save your life.”
