A PERSONAL NOTE TO MY RADIO FAMILY

letter photo final
Michael and Diane Medved on January 11th, 2015

All those who listen regularly to my radio show know how much I value the privilege of speaking to this eager, enlightened audience every weekday, year-round. I have been unapologetically fanatical about broadcasting whenever, however I can; in eighteen years of national syndication, I’ve never missed more than four days in a row of regularly scheduled broadcasts.

I always knew that it would take something serious to keep me away from the microphone I cherish for an extended period of time. As it turns out, I am facing something serious. It’s called cancer.

To be more precise, I was diagnosed in the middle of December with stage three throat cancer. I began medical treatment immediately at one of the finest cancer centers in the country and my prognosis for full recovery is very good; in the great majority of cases, this is a highly curable form of cancer. In fact, given my fierce desire to keep doing the show I managed to broadcast every day while completing more than half of my daily radiation and weekly chemotherapy treatments. I would go to the hospital first thing in the morning then make my way down to our Seattle studios to do the live show. The doctors warned me that this would become increasingly difficult.

At this point, my confidence and good spirits would lead me to go on but my voice – the most essential tool in radio – won’t cooperate. So beginning today – Friday, January 30th – I’m taking a medical leave of absence until my recovery is more advanced.

I receive my last scheduled radiation treatment on February 26th. Shortly thereafter, I hope to return to regular broadcasting, well in time to take full, active part in all of the excitement and significance of this pre-election year – the second to last year of the Obama era! The exact time of my return will be determined by my medical progress, but rest assured that I’ll be straining to get back to work just as soon as humanly possible.

Any break from my show is a big deal for me and for my family. When I travel, I broadcast from the road. I broadcast from Israel (in the middle of the night) and from Hawaii (in the early hours of morning). We used to reflect on the fact that in eighteen years of radio, I’d accumulated nearly a year of unused vacation and sick days. That’s not to say that I’m work obsessed (though I guess that I am) but to make clear how much I love my job. And how much I thank God every morning that I was born in the greatest nation on earth, and that I’m able to support my family by talking about the significant issues of the day. One of the slogans of our show has always been: “I am not a victim.” I affirm – and embrace – that sentiment more than ever.

In other words, I will be back just as soon as I can, and in the interim the show will continue with my friend Mark Davis of Dallas, one of the most respected voices in talk radio, as my principal fill-in. Mark is a persuasive and necessary voice on conservative values, and a consummate professional. Recently, he’s been a frequent guest host for Rush Limbaugh – and as you may know I got my own start in radio as a regular fill in host for Rush back in the 1990s, before launching my own syndicated show. My dear friend and long-time colleague David Boze, the most popular morning host in Seattle, will also be taking the microphone regularly, as will the brilliant Arthur Brooks, President of American Enterprise Institute. The discussion will be lively, passionate, surprising and substantive – as always on the Medved show. Jeremy Steiner and Greg Tomlin, who are more like brothers to me than just producers, will be there to make sure of that – and to keep connected with every detail of the show.

Meanwhile, I’ll be off the air but not off the grid: I’ll continue writing various columns and commentaries that we will send out in our newsletter, including appropriate movie updates, and more. I’m also hoping to make progress on my new book, GOD’S HAND ON AMERICA: THE CASE FOR DIVINE PROVIDENCE IN US HISTORY, to be published by Crown Forum/Random House.

Of all human characteristics I admire most, loyalty has always stood near the top. I am blessed beyond measure by my loving and loyal family: Diane, my wife of thirty years (our anniversary was Tuesday of this week!), our daughters Sarah and Shayna, our son Daniel, and our daughter-in-law, Richelle (who’s just completing her nursing degree at University of Washington, very helpfully). My staff – Jeremy, Greg and intrepid assistant Karmen Frisvold – continue to be dedicated and supportive beyond measure, as have my great radio colleagues at Salem Communications and Bonneville Seattle.

I also know how fortunate I am with my loyal and marvelous audience, so I wanted to provide full transparency and direct explanations.

As important as politics can be (and it’s one of the animating passions of my life, obviously), my situation serves as a powerful reminder of the profound truth in one of the greatest conservative quotes of all time, from Dr. Samuel Johnson in the 1770s:

How small, of all that human hearts endure,

That part which laws or kings can cause or cure.

Here’s hoping for cures, and causes, well beyond the range of earthly laws or rulers.

You’ll be hearing from me soon.

– Michael Medved

      • AW  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 9:09 pm

        I am sorry for your cancer. I’m sure you have the health insurance necessary so you can concentrate on getting better. Specially when you rant about the Obama Care that is helping do give others the piece of mind you have.

      • Kathrine Obrien  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 1:07 am

        I carry you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Believe In your faith, family, friends, medical caregivers and miracles. Know that you are wrapped in the love of so many!

    • Jim Jester  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:00 pm

      As a fellow conservative fighting the good fight here in Western Washington, I will sorely miss your voice during your absence. I will certainly keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Godspeed Mr. Medved.

      Michael, I am deeply saddened to hear you are fighting cancer. As a long time MedHead, I feel like we’ve become friends, even though we’ve never met.
      I will greatly miss your voice of reason on the radio. Thank you for choosing excellent hosts to fill-in while you are recovering.
      Rest and be strong again. The radio world needs you!
      May God bless you

    • Stephanie Gutmann  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:34 pm

      Michael, I am addicted to your show so I will be counting the minutes till you get back. My husband, Bill Tucker, tried to press his most recent book on you last summer when you spoke in Brooklyn. His air of …er…extreme determination which may have noticed, was partly due to the fact that he was about a week away from beginning a bone marrow transplant for ALL (I think that’s the name; it’s a kind of blood cancer.) Six months later his scans are “clear” as they say and he’s “100 percent donor” which means the transplant took. He’s gaining weight, gaining energy, and just generally coming back from a very harrowing experience which had him losing nearly 50 pounds and generally looking and acting like one of the guys they found when they unlocked the gates at Auschwitz. He’s an older guy too, but like you he was extremely healthy and went into the treatment with a very strong body and a very determined mind. I know you are going to do well. You really are the best radio host out there and we eagerly await your return. Best wishes, Stephanie in Stony Point, New York

    • h n angell  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:27 pm

      • Diane  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 8:19 pm

        Your God and mine, although I am a Christian, is known by one of His names, Jehovah Rapha (the God that heals). We are praying for you, in Jesus’ name.

    • Dale Lyon  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:50 pm

      Michael, God bless. I am a throat cancer survivor…yes a survivor and you will be too!! If you ever have any questions on what to expect along the way let me know. WE GOT THIS. Dale

    • Ron Mckenzie  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      As I heard the news on your Friday broadcast about your health issue, I found myself crying about your situation. I have followed you for years and think of you as our countries conservative mentor. There is nobody like you! May God Bless You and heal you so that we may have your wisdom and knowledge to listen to once again.

      You mean so much to me, and I’m going to miss hearing you while you recover. You and your family will be in my prayers daily. May the Lord bless you, and keep you!

      Shalom and God bless you.

    • Darrell - Charlotte, N.C.  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      I will also be praying for you as many others have said they will. I had a small cancer in my upper pallet. It has been removed and radiated and has not returned. I pray that you find just as I did that your faith in God, good doctors, your family, friends and prayer are a mighty force in the battle. May The Lord bless you with His truth and healing of your flesh so you may continue in the good fight.

    • Kristen  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:33 am

      Dear Michael, we are praying for you. I listen almost every day. I am looking forward to your return to radio. I cried today when you told us of your diagnosis. But I know you are going to be back real soon. Just know you will be missed.

    • Matt McGraw  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:10 am

      I do not always agree with you but always respect you, in other words I look forward to your return.

    • Maria  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 6:23 am

      Dear Michael,
      My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God surround you with HIs peace and strength and grant you healing. Rest assured that your radio family is surrounding you with our prayers and loving support. I will miss hearing your voice and look forward to the day when you once again broadcast over “this greatest nation on God’s green earth.” Much love to you and your family.

    • JimF  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 8:28 am

      I am a fairly new listener of your show but know that “you will be missed” as is evidenced by the volume of comments. I’m sorry to hear this news and could hear the cracks in your voicing as you delivered your story last night when I heard it. You have your Faith and family to help you all along the way! Best wishes for a swift and comprehensive recovery. Respectfully..

      • Bill Naschak  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 9:10 pm

        Michael, We are praying for your complete and rapid recovery. We have selfish reasons for this country needs your wisdom, your analysis, your reports and your great contributions to this greatest country on God’s green earth. We wish you Godspeed and perseverence.

      • yvonne  •  Mar 5, 2015 at 7:43 pm

        Michael ,
        So sorry to hear you have had cancer. My Husband had 4th stage colon cancer and is now in his 3rd year of being cancer free. We are truly blessed to live in the greatest country on earth where we have access to such great cancer care and I pray that God will use the best care you can get to bring about a full recovery. I had been missing your voice and just recently found out why.

    • Lewis Seiler  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 9:47 am

      Michael,

      Will be praying for your complete recovery, I saw you when you came to Louisville and broadcast from inside our baseball stadium, Slugger Field. I do not know if you have been receiving the Christmas cards I sent you with the two terriers, Fiona and Lilly, but the three of us will be following your progress closely, we need you back! All the best and Go Seahawks! Please let us know how you are doing as your time permits!

    • Debby, Marietta,GA  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:08 am

      Michael, I’ve enjoyed listening to your enlightening show for many years. You are such a talented person. I know you will get well soon and pray for your quick recovery.

    • Pat  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:23 pm

      Michael, I was so shocked to hear your news. Cancer is a journey, I am 11 years now away from my diagnosis. I will pray for your recovery and look forward to having you back very soon, you’e like family. You keep me grounded when I get frustrated with events in the world, and I believe you have helped me talk to those that disagree with Conservative ideas, to be a more thoughtful person and let people know we really do care about people and the effects of Liberal policies have on them. It’s not that we are just against Liberal policies, but we are determined to protect the innocent people who are hurt by them.

    • Virginia  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:09 pm

      Michael, you are the best when it comes to explaining politics. I have learned so much listening to you. Gob bless you for your faith and courage. We will miss you as you are recovering (and you will). You are surrounded with good wishes and, of course, prayers. I add my prayers, as well. God bless,
      An 86-year-old listener

      Have seen you often when you come down to Glendale and listen to you almost daily. My family and I wish you a speedy recovery and complete cure from cancer and our prayers are with you.

    • DON HARDIE  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 4:40 pm

      Michael,I live in the Northstar state and a few years back I started mentioning to friends that the older you get , the years fly by , but the winters drag on. More recently I’ve lamented that as a younger man I couldn’t wait for Fridays, now they come too fast,and now I appreciate all days that end in Y…equally ! No matter the content of your show on any given day it’s infused with a positive attitude. I believe you’ll get to plan for Fridays farther than your eyes can see!! God speed.

    • Rich  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 5:10 pm

      Michael,

      I was devastated to hear of your illness, but delighted to read that your prognosis is full recovery! First we had Rush with his hearing problems, and now you. I have to wonder why nothing like this ever happens to the Socialist broadcasters. 🙁

      My prayers are with you for as fast a recovery as is possible.

      🙂

    • Larry  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 12:17 pm

      God bless you and your family, Michael. May your challenge be overcome with full recovery. I look forward to your return to the airwaves, once again to shed truth and light across this greatest nation on God’s green earth.

    • Dean  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 12:33 pm

      Our prayers go out to you and your family as we pray for you to successfully battle this disease. I’ve been a loyal listener for many years, enjoying your company while I’m on the road (scheduling my trips around Portland during your broadcast) and while alone working in my office. I’m never disappointed with the people you attract to the broadcast: informed, articulate and intelligent, just like their host!

      God bless you Michael!

    • Steele  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:19 pm

      Michael my thoughts and prayers are with you in your recovery process. I have listened to you since first discovering you on the radio in 1994, in Seattle. Since that time I have always made it a point to find you everywhere I’ve lived. Dallas, Seattle and Spokane, sometimes even only in the AM.I have enjoyed your insightful take on many issues combined with an optimistic approach and a calm, even keeled voice. I wish you a quick and speedy recovery!!! (p.s. I have never heard you address your use of the Silverado theme in your show, my favorite all time western)

    • Larry Kincaid  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:39 pm

      I am a very long time listener and have admired your knowledge, wisdom, skills and your phenomenal recall/memory – something that you have been blessed and gifted with. Will keep you in my prayers.

      God is good!!! and surely has more plans for you to use your voice.

    • Sharon Law  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    • jim sandberg  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 8:36 pm

      Micheal you have allways mentioned your beautiful wife and your three children but to actually see Diane standing along side you I think you have managed to understate the beauty of your wife, She is a ravishing babe, I hope your children take more of her looks than yours because sadly you have lots of smarts and only passable good looks You are very impressive when you are dealing with callers who are dip wads, quite often they have a lot of passion about their cause but cant even back up their statements with an example, You give them many chances and allways keep your cool these types make me want to scream and I know that you battle with your temper while listening to their drivel >>thank you Sir for being the calm amongst the storm and recover with full facilities intact

      Dear Michael,
      Today in the Roman Catholic Church is the feast of St. Blaise, the patron saint of ailments of the throat. During daily Mass we were offered the opportunity to have our throats blessed in honor of St. Blaise and ask his intercession for protection and healing from ailments of the throat and all evil. I stood in proxy for you asking God to apply the blessing to you for your total and complete healing from cancer of the throat. May God bless you. Much love to you and your family.

      Was already mourning the Seahawks loss when I heard your letter on air Monday. All the best for a speedy recovery for you & your family & (selfishly) for your many devoted listeners. You are my absolute fave, help me keep my sanity (in oh-so-liberal W Seattle) & stay informed as a “stay-at-home” mother of 3 boys. I am constantly quoting “Michael Medved”. I worked as an R.N. prior to having children and expect you’re in great hands in Seattle’s medical community. Miss you, but look forward to your return!

    • Chris in Philly  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 3:10 pm

On behalf of many of us in a small messianic congregation that listen to you, May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob watch over you.

      Michael

      Just want to remind you that blessing for the health of someone you don’t really know has merit in the eyes of hashem so please reveal your relevant Hebrew name in its entirety. Secondly, as you know our sages also tell us that when the one who is ill prays for someone else (he may not even know) who is ill this is merit for both. While unfortunately there are plenty of illnesses all around us perhaps you can have in mind a 2 yr old little girl in our community with brain cancer by the name of ‘Rochel Emuna bat Rivka Dvorah Brayna.’

      May you merit a complete Refuah and looking forward to hearing you impart your wisdom and depth of knowledge once again and for many years to come on talk radio .

      Just another fan

      Marty .

      Hope you have a full recovery and can enjoy many more years even if its not on the radio, should your voice not recover enough to continue. Best to you!

    • Craig Borgardt  •  Mar 7, 2015 at 11:50 am

      My the richest of God’s power, sovereignty and grace be compounded upon you and your family during this time of trial…..your faith will abound no matter the outcome. May His blessings be upon you, to heal in both body and spirit for the ravages of cancer and other severe illnesses take their toll on both. Looking forward to your return!

      Michael,

      Miss your Energy, Enthusiasm and Love!!

      I’m “praying” and being grateful for meeting you at the book signing in lovely Balboa Park’s Sports Museum( April 18, 2013 ).
      I can read your books until you return. Please take your time.

      Thank you Mr. Medved,

      Respectfully,

      Robert in La Jolla, Ca.

      P.S .Hope you find some time to watch our exciting ‘Aztecs’ during “March Madness” !

      I listened to Mark Davis this morning on his show and again this afternoon on your show. I went through cancer treatment 2 years ago. I, like you, worked through it. My work, horses, friends, and church helped me tremendously along the way. As I wandered through that valley of death, it dawned on me that no one better than Our Lord and Saviour is in control. He knows what lies ahead of us and He prepares us daily for the challenges we face. I pray for your complete recovery and hope to hear you again, soon. Blessings to you, your lovely wife and the rest of your family.

    • Stephany  •  Mar 31, 2015 at 10:31 am

    God be with you and your family during this fight Michael.

  8. Elaine Minamide  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:18 pm

    Oh, Michael, I’m so sorry to hear about your illness! When you first started to talk about “changes” etc. I thought you were going to say you were planning on taking a leave of absence to run for Barbara Boxer’s senate seat! I would have been fine with that! But to hear about your illness…I’m so glad you’re a fighter, and I’m so happy to hear your optimistic assessment. Please stay strong, fight this thing, and come back to the mic soon! Best wishes, much prayer, much love. Thank you for all you do.

  9. Neal Carpenter  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:19 pm

    Michael, you are definitely in my prayers. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

  10. Elaine Minamide  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    PS it only occurred to me belatedly that you couldn’t run for Boxer’s seat because you don’t live in California.

  11. MIchael Arbagi  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    We’re praying for you, Michael. Looking forward to your quick recovery and return to the airwaves.

  12. Christian Belena  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Dear Michael:
    I will pray for you and your family for as easy a recovery as is possible. I know that our God will protect you and your family and, as we know, as it His will – things will go as they should. I will not wax sentimental – you are surely aware of your audience’s sentiments – but keep high spirits and hopes that all will be good. We have some very optimistic times ahead of us and you will be there to help usher them in. With all the love and respect, from my family to yours, Christian Belena, Atlanta, GA.

  13. Brad  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    Crushed to hear, Michael. You are my only hope from the right wing. I adore you. Please, please, please get better!! Love you!!

    Michael, however short an absence, the airwaves in Utah will be empty without you. We’ll pray for a speedy and full recovery for you and peace for your family during this difficult time. Bless you!

  16. Jon  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    My family and I are keeping you in our prayers, Michael. We listen to you every day and wish you a solid recovery through this process.

    I will be delighted and looking for your return.
    May you continue to have God’s blessings.
    You have unwavering faith. That is rare.

    Many prayers for your complete healing and for peace, comfort, wisdom, strength and joy for you and your family. My husband and I are longtime listeners, and are very thankful for your insight. Thank you for many years of awesome broadcasts. We’re eager for many more after you recover!

  26. Kathy  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    Michael, words can’t express how saddened I was to hear of your illness. I don’t always get to hear your broadcast live, but I am really glad I was home today to hear you. I was so afraid your announcement was that you were moving to another station or something like that. I fought back tears when you initially made your announcement. So glad to hear that prognosis is positive. As a Christian, I will be praying for your quick recovery. I can’t wait until you return again. You are one of my “go to” experts on political matters and more. However, more than your expertise I admire your character and values. Be well and God bless.

  27. Harry Snyder  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    Get well soon! You will be missed, but I am looking forward to your return.

    Be strong.

    Michael, my late mother adored you and so do I. You have given so much to all of us and to the greatest nation on God’s green earth! I look forward to your complete recovery and return to the airwaves, but take all the time you need to be in optimal health! We will be here and, in the interim, you have many people praying for you and your family! God bless you, Michael

    I have enjoyed your radio program for many years. I hope you have a speedy recovery and that God always watches over you and you’re family.

    Sincerely,

    I am praying for a speedy recovery. I love your show–I listen most every day and appreciate your dedication and care. Nobody can replace your knowledge and passion. I look forward to your return and good health for you!

  33. Maren Sanders  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    I, too, had cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) when I was 65. During the radiation treatment I visualized all the little cancer cells falling off and dying…..the chemo made me sick but I believe the visualization of dying cancer cells and good people around me, made me well. I am now 73 yrs old and cancer free……..I know you will also get well…….but in the mean time, I’ll miss you.

    Bless you and get well soon……

  34. Jim and Julie  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Michael, we are stunned and saddened to hear of this and we will pray for you and Diane. We hope you have a quick and complete recovery. Best wishes.

  35. Peter  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Michael,
    Prayers to you as you battle to become healthy again…looking forward to your healthy return!

    Going forward, please embrace taking care of your whole body even more so. As well as you’ve kept your lifestyle and diet healthy, there’s more you can do to help the healing. I will leave you with this bit of Noble Prize winning wisdom Dr. Otto Warburg 80 years ago.

    “”All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.”

  36. Chris  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    Michael—How honoring to be called your “radio family.” I have felt honored and privileged to listen to you every day. God Bless you…I will keep you in my daily prayers.

    Chris

  37. Mary R  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    God Bless you, and your beautiful family, Michael. You are in our prayers as we ask the Lord to give you a speedy and comfortable recovery. You are a wonderful blessing to so, so many, and an important part of your listening audience’s lives. Thank You, for your faithfulness, discussing, sharing, informing all of us about so many relevant issues. The God we both share is Faithful, as well, and will carry you through this journey.

    Michael-
    I look forward to your show every day, and have listened since you started at 570 KVI all those years ago. I am praying for you, your family, and a 100% recovery. Do take this time and focus on yourself. We will all still be here when you get back.

  40. Tamir Weiner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:38 pm

    Michael, I’ve been a listener of your show for years, and today I heard the changes in your voice and your explanation on the radio show. Yours is an important voice on talk radio and I’ve enjoyed your history shows as well. I want to add my wishes to you for a full recovery — a “refuah shley’mah”. You are taking a needed break to recuperate, and I hope to hear you back in full strength again soon. All the best, and Godspeed…..

  41. Dan Frischer  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    Michael,

    I listen to your show 5 days a week while I work. Your presence on the radio will be missed greatly. America and the world need your voice. I will pray for your recovery and know I will be hearing your voice again soon.

    Dan

  42. Stephen Mata  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    I discovered Michael when he guest hosted for Rush. You and Walter Williams were my favorite guest hosts. I was happy to discover that you had a show of your own and have been listening since the start. How many years has it been? Wow. I’ll miss you Michael. My kids and I always marked Thursdays at D-Day.

    Waiting patiently to hear your wit and opinion.

  43. Bob McCune  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:40 pm

  44. Keith  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:41 pm

    Michael,

    I am so saddened by the news. I was in shock as I sat in the car listening. You will be missed dearly as you are the only sane voice out there in the wilderness of political talk shows. I will be praying for you and your family. Get well soon and when you come back I will be listening. God Speed!!

  45. Lana  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    I’ve been listening to you for years – just heard your announcement and I’ve got tears in my eyes. From now on it’s going to be Tehillim from my heart. Take care of yourself and may you have a complete and speedy recovery.

  46. Bruce Brewer  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    Your show is my favorite on the radio! I listen to you everyday at work on 960AM The Patriot KKNT in Phoenix, AZ. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Mr. Medved!

  49. W. Bronson  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Michael —

    …been where you’ve been.

    …had what you’ve had. Exactly!

    There is an end to the long dark tunnel! You’ll arrive wiser, stronger for the journey.

    Michael, I wish you well and the prayers of many of us are with and for you. Even allowing for how intelligent you are, I suspect you may not know how many lives you touch and influence, for the better. We look forward to your recovery and return to broadcasting. G_d bless.

  51. Kurt Werner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:46 pm

    Michael,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your condition.
    I’ve been listing to you for the last ~+15 yrs. ‘fair and balanced’.
    We use to lived in Issaquah, WA.

    I’m also a cancer survivor who give’s thanks to God the almighty for healing.
    The doctors in Seattle are indeed most wonderful and caring.

    I am praying for you and your family that God will indeed heal you completely from this thief!

    Blessings to you in our Lord Jesus’ name.

    Michael-
    I’ve been a MedHead for years, and I’ve learned that apart from airline delays and holy days, there isn’t much that can keep you from live broadcasting, so I knew something serious had come up when I started hearing repeats in the podcast feed…

    God bless you and your family, and the best of best wishes for a speedy recovery, but don’t rush it… Take your time and get better; we’ll be here when you get back!

  53. gilbert warner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:46 pm

    keep you in my prayers michael hope you get better

    god bless you

  54. Cindi  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    I started listening to you back in your movie review days when I lived in Chicago. You were always a likeable guy! Eventually life brought me and my husband to Seattle’s Eastside. What a blessing it is to have a brilliant conservative advocate such as you (I won’t lie–David Boze too!) to boost our spirits in this region.

    God speed you back to good health, Michael.

    p.s. You’re still a very likeable guy!

  55. Justin  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    Michael,

    God bless you and your family as you beat cancer. Thank you so much for the influence you have been in my life since I started listening 14 years ago. I look forward to hearing you once again!

    Get well soon!

    Upward and onward!

    • Les  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:02 pm

      Dear Michael,
      I’m a ten year throat cancer survivor who had radiation treatments in 2004 so I know what you are going through. My advice: stay nourished and as stress free as possible – and most importantly, easy does it. There’s plenty of time for your career after your recovery. As a long time listener, I will be patient and will be here when you are ready. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and especially for your primary caregiver (I’m assuming it’s your wife.) And finally, reach out to other oral cancer patients and survivors – it really helps.

  56. Joanne, Bellevue, Wa.  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    We will be praying for your complete and speedy recovery.

  57. Yair Treister  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:49 pm

  59. Wes  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    Prayers for a full and speedy recovery!

  61. Mel Taylor  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    As you go through this, please know that probably every minute of the day someone in this “greatest nation on God’s green earth” is praying for your complete healing and recovery! We’re all very much looking forward to hearing you back on the air ASAP! BTW, I have learned so much from your very educational American history talks aired on holidays.

  62. Michael  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    It will be difficult at first, but try to relax and enjoy your well earned sabbatical. As a recent cancer survivor, (prostate surgery, 12.31.14) I know how important rest and relaxation is to recovery. Thank you, Dr. Diana, for taking care of Michael. A loving spouse is the best medicine that money can’t buy. God bless you both. Take care, be strong, stay happy.

  64. John  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    You the Man Michael. Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery! I always love how you fully welcome and embrace the opposition in a thoughtful and polite way. Just so refreshing to see that. I am a conservative but have really become jaded with how each side works so hard to demonize the opposition. The best way to show they are wrong is to have the dialogue and discussion with them. You’re one of the only ones on the national scene I know of that does that. As a Dallas resident I absolutely love Mark Davis and he will be a great steward of your show during your short absence! All the best to you from the greatest nation on God’s green earth!

    Michael, I heard your news today and burst into tears. I almost missed your show today, I looked at the clock at my desk and said, on no less than an hour left to listen to Michael Medved. Wishing you a speedy recovery. God Bless.

    Amy Thomson, Tacoma, WA.

  68. Carol and David Jacobs  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:57 pm

    I am sorry you have to go through this. But we are confident of a good outcome. We will be praying for you and we hope you find pleasure in being able to spend time with your family, reading, writing, and just plain enjoying life.

  69. Kristi  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    Michael you are in our thoughts and prayers. Wishing you a speedy recovery so you can return to us soon. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.

    We will be keeping you and your family in our prayers.

    Keep praising and trusting God.

    I’ve been a listener for many years. I wish you and your family all the best. This ‘is’ the greatest country on God’s green earth and you are a credit ,both professionally and as a family man, to all who hear your voice & read your books and columns.

  73. Rob  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    Micheal, you’ve said several times today that you need to step away because the most important part of what you do is your voice. I agree that your words are extremely important to all of us, but your physical voice is not the makeup of the man. The doctor who you spoke to on air tonight was absolutely right, take care of yourself first, but hearing that you’re going to continue you work through your columns and book is just as important. God bless and we all look forward to your return.

  74. GeorgeT  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    Good luck Michael. Hang tough. See ya back here soon.

  75. Mariann  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    I will miss hearing you on my drive home from work, but look forward to your return. I am a 21.5 year breast cancer survivor (God be praised!) and I wish you that many years and more!
    Know that you will be in my daily prayers – I had many people praying for me, and I want to pay it forward. God Bless You, Michael, and your family also.

    Our prayers are with you for a full and fast recovery. We will miss you on the air, as you bring the widest variety to topics to conservative radio. God be with you.

  77. Alan  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    As a survivor i can attest to faith and attitude playing a large part in treatment. I will pray for your speedy recovery and comfort for your family. Keep on the libs you arecour cultural crusader.

  78. Nancy  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    Michael, I am just stunned and saddened to hear of your cancer!
    I am an avid listener and just love variety and content of your show.
    I will be praying for your recovery! Stay strong and may God bless you and your wonderful family!

  79. Carrie  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    i live in Honolulu and LIVE for your podcasts I listen to them while hiking with my dogs. My son who is a senior in high school has me play your podcasts any time I’m driving with him in the car. Today we are sitting in a lunch cafe in Seattle, he will be visiting the UW campus tomorrow and asked me if we could somehow find your studios and listen to your show. I pick up my phone and read this announcement and it somehow feels personal. God bless you through your treatment, I look forward to your recovery and there is only ONE thing I ever disagree with you about sir and that is football! Go Pats!

  80. C Lipton  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    Michael,
    Been with you since you subbed for Rush. You always have fresh and interesting insights even though I don’t always agree. God willing get back here soon. You will be sorely missed. Counting on you to only be gone a few weeks. Your hopefulness is needed in this trying time for the Greatest Nation on God’s green earth. Healing prayers on the way! Orange,CA

  81. Laura  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    Michael,
    You are my treasured friend with whom I look forward to spending each afternoon with. Thank-you for educating me on a myriad of subjects; you have influenced my vocabulary, my book list, my understanding of history and pop culture, and made me an informed American. (When I have been terrified by current events you have given me logical reasons to be hopeful.)
    Please take good care of yourself, I believe and pray for your complete recovery!
    Laura

  82. Kelly  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    Michael, may God richly bless you and your precious family. We look forward to hearing back from you soon as we continue to pray for a complete and quick healing.

  83. Henni Webb  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    We will pray for a full and speedy recovery. God hold you close to Himself while you are in His care through your journey.

  84. Pete  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    Michael,
    I’ve been listening to you for over 10 years and spoke with you once on the phone. You’ve kept me company well. I wish the best for you and all your people. Now hurry up and heal and get your ass back on the air. You are the only talk show host who truly handles the left side right! Take care, Pete

  85. Ann Conrad  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    Michael,
    Please know how many friends will be praying for a very speedy recovery. You are very loved and we all hope you rest, recooperate and are well and back on the dial a.s.a.p!

    My God bless your recovery,

    Mr.Medved,

    I just learned the news when I tuned into your radio show as I have been doing for the last 10 or so years and it really moved me. Hearing your voice today touched my heart and made me cry within. As an immigrant from India, I hold you in particular among many as the person responsible for making me feel connected to America and fall in love with this great Country. Your commentaries and debates taught me about American Values that we all need to cherish and protect (and certainly pass on to the next generation), instilled in me a sense of patriotism and made me much more appreciative of the strengths of this great country and its citizens.

    I sincerely hope that this is just a brief interruption and will await your return impatiently……

  87. Daniel Stackhouse  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Hi Michael,

    I met you at one of your book signings for “The Ten Big Lies About America,” in 2008. I asked you to inscribe my book: “To Danny, good luck with the Ph.D. program!” I wanted you to know I completed my Ph.D. in history at Claremont Graduate University in 2013. Thank you, good luck, and I will be hearing you on the radio again soon!

    Daniel Stackhouse

  88. Marshall Dedrick  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Michael, I had tears of both concern and admiration running down my face off and on for the last hour of today’s show. Over the last eight years listening to you has assisted me with developing a much more defined attitude towards balance, accountability and the ability to take pride in the fact that I believe in self-reliance and responsibility. I feel love for you despite not being part of your clique and was honored to meet you and get a picture (very dear to my heart) on one of your visits to Chicago. It is evidence of the human sprit that one can feel love for another despite not being on the “call list” and I believe that is yet another gift from God. Listening to your show I feel as though I am the only one you are speaking to yet understand I am but one of millions of people whom you touch each day. I wish you God’s speed and pray for God’s healing touch to descend on you and hope to be listening to you very, very soon. You have my admiration and also my prayers. Sincerely, Marshall

  89. Joe  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:12 pm

    Michael,

    You will be truly missed, even if it is for only a month. It was a highlight of mine that I got to meet you at the Reagan Library a number of years ago. I will be praying for you and your family and for your quick recovery. You are a light in this dark world that certainly shines very bright!
    Blessings, Joe from Covina, CA

  90. Jan wallils  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:13 pm

    We have loved you and your radio program has been a staple in our household since the very beginning of your career. When you first mentioned “Jan of White Bear” we felt as though you have been a personal friend and we care about you so much. We have visited with you at the Minn,. State Fair and value your insights and opinions. We KNOW there is a God and He loves you and we are praying for a full recovery for you and we also are praying for your family Mday you have peace, joy and total healing.

  91. Karin Johnson  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:13 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I tune in almost everyday, but haven’t been able to for a few days. Just today, when you came on, I thought, “wow Michael, you really have a cold! Good things it’s the weekend to get well.” I heard that you were going to make an announcement, and when I got back, you were just at the end.
    Thank you for the letter! Even though I am stunned, I’m so glad to get your current story. I love being part of your radio family, as you are like family. We all love you, and especially love it when you say that we are the greatest nation on God’s green earth. Even though the immediate reaction is tears, I too had a curable cancer 5 years ago. The chemo was hell, but I’m all ok now! I pray God’s will for you life and health, His peace for you and your family, and His wisdom for you and your doctors. I guess I’ll have to get busy and finally order Right Turns, so I can have my dose of your brand of wisdom until you return to us! God bless you, and God bless your voice! Love and prayers from this Johnson family!

  92. Abdoole O' Toole  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    Michael you are the best friend I’ve never met. I have spent most every weekday afternoon with you since your golden voice and brilliant intellect first came on the air. The first ten minutes of your show are the best that radio has ever had to offer. I have never heard anyone who comes out the gate with such a punch since George Putnam and you will be missed dearly. I have greatly admired and benefited from your wisdom and work ethic and wish you all my love.

  93. Jan  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Michael,
    Having recently moved from Seattle to Phoenix, just hearing your voice on the air makes me feel like I have a friend nearby. Please know that you will be greatly missed while you undergo further treatment and that many of your loyal radio listeners are in your corner. Best of luck and prayers for a full and speedy recovery. Can’t wait to have you back on the air!
    Jan N.

  94. Carol Ann  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Michael- you will be in my prayers for a complete recovery…I will miss your laugh! You have a great laugh! I look forward to hearing it again soon.
    May God hold you in His hands,
    Carol Ann

  95. Mary Ann R  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    Michael, I adore you and the radio show. I’m praying for you and know God will walk you through this challenge. I had cancer 4 years ago and am clear now. It can do wonderful things for your life, including showing you what’s truly important and how much people love you. I will continue to lift you up in my prayers.
    Mary Ann

  96. Vicky Sallee  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    Michael – I love you and love the show. I got to see you in person a couple of times and get my books autographed. I know you will be back soon but I will miss your voice (and your laugh-I love it when you get tickled about something!) I can’t believe you worked through any of your treatments! You will be in my prayers. You are a strong man with a strong support system. The doctor who called in was right. Focus on you, and what you need to do, and we will all be here when you get back. God bless you. – Vicky

  97. Tom Gardner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    First heard you on Jim Dobson’s broadcast many years ago. You were impressive. Followed you over the years and, honestly, your show is a highlight in my day. I’ll keep you in my prayers, that God will cure you quickly and completely and, if that is not His will, that He will give you the strength to make it through. My wife, Patty, worked as a teacher at Torah Academy here in Minneapolis. We are Christians, but it was wonderful to experiance a little of the Jewish culture. Wish you the best. Thanks for what you do.

  98. Kathy Miller  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    You are the best! There is no other in radio with your talent, intelligence, knowledge, and most important of all … grace. Please do come back. I can’t/won’t envision American culture without your voice. Godspeed! Love, … from a devoted member of your radio family.

  99. Kay Christensen  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    Michael, I have planned three hours of my afternoon around your show every afternoon since I retired from my job as a senior policy analyst for my city. I love your show because, while you are consistently conservative (thank you), the content of your show is unpredictable, challenging and enlightening. I appreciate your method of communicating disagreement without being disagreeable and I always marvel at your reasoning power. I hope in your writing you will keep us (your radio family) up to speed on your progress and on your political and other views. I also hope you will comment on the political and security situation in Israel. You are a blessing to this greatest country on G-d’s green earth, and you will be in my prayers.

  100. Bill  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    May God bless you with a full and speedy recovery! Prayers for you, your family and your doctors.

  101. Mike, RN  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    Take care of yourself first! Only then can you take care of faith, family, and other “stuff” in this World.

    You are in my prayers,

    Take Care, Mike, RN

  102. Dave  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    Michael I will add my prayers to many many others that you have a full recovery.
    God Bless you.

  103. Rick Mann  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    You just made me realize that the depth of faith and prayer is greatest not merely from love, but also from respect and admiration. When you said, just minutes ago, that it’s just ‘little Michael Medved being a victor – not a victim’, I must admit I kind of lost it.

    There are tears, and the prayers will continue…..you have changed my life for the good.

    So, the way I see it, you will emerge healthy and better than ever in EVERYTHING you do.

    And a mammoth admiration for your wonderful family. You ARE a very lucky man….In the meantime, I know that your strength, and the will of Hashem will bring you to insights you’ll eloquently share with us all….SOON.

  104. Gary  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    Will miss your passion, compassion, and wise persuasion while you are healing. Sending lots of prayers, and look forward to your return soon!

  105. Kathrin  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:28 pm

    Dear Michael,
    How blessed we have been to have your company and insights every afternoon, and how blessed you are to have thousands of friends who will be praying for your full recovery. Please read every one of these comments carefully—they are love notes to you from a loyal audience and community of grateful friends.

    I am very excited about your new book—indeed God’s hand has been upon American, just as His love and care are with you.

    Get well soon!

    Kathrin

  106. Anne Taylor  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    You are part of my commute home every day!!! I will miss hearing you, and will be praying daily for your speedy and full recovery.

    God bless you and your family, and this greatest nation on His green earth!!!

    Micheal,

    I met you in San Diego several years ago and met your father in Israel in 2006 when we went to his home. We heard you speak at Skyline as well. We are praying for a full recover, believing our Almighty God for a complete restoration of your voice. Your voice is more than just vocal folds making sound, your voice speaks for so many of us who believe in God and love this country…and like you always say, “This is God’s greatest nation on God’s green earth” Amen….
    take care…Fred and Pam Luschei

  108. Lance  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    Michael, Been listening to you since the mid-90s Rush days – you are the most sane, rational, and enjoyable voice out there in Talk Radio! So shocked to hear of your trial – but I have no doubt you will overcome and I will keep you in my daily prayers for a swift recovery.
    God Bless.

  109. Lee Schmortz  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    Michael,

    You occupy that space on the airwaves between the rabid right and the pathetic left. It a place of wisdom, intellect, reason and grace. I listen everyday to hopefully absorb just a fraction of those virtues from the words you broadcast. All my best to you and yours in this endeavor for the cure and look forward to more words of wisdom in March.

  110. David T. in SoCal  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    Dear Michael and family:
    You are an inspiration to me…every day! God tells us to, “Pray without ceasing”.
    I will be doing so, eagerly awaiting your return to the airwaves!

  111. Richad Osterman  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:37 pm

    Just to let you know Michael, that you have been such and inspiration to me, every afternoon. I know that you have great fill in guests, but I am so used to you “being there” for my afternoons, gaining so much knowledge from you. Yoiu will be in my daily prayers to God and cannot wait until you return to the radio. I love you like a brother.

  112. Marty  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    Michael, I listened to you practically every weekday when I lived in Seattle. I enjoyed your show immensely. I wish you a full and speedy recovery. All the best to you.

  113. Trent  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    Michael:

    You’ve been a part of my life, off and on, for thirty years, since I read The Golden Turkey Awards (and Son of…) as a kid and watched you on Sneak Previews. I’ve been listening to your radio show since I stumbled across it in 2002. It is the best show out there, and you have some really high quality competition!

    You are in my prayers. Please take care of yourself, and come back when you are able. I’d like you in my life for another thirty years.

  114. SP. Romney  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    The quality of voice is a small part of it. You could whisper or croak and I’d still enjoy it.
    It’s the intelligence and the quality of the content that have kept me listening every day.

  115. Bernadette B.  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I am a devoted listener, when able, and today caught only a small portion of your last hour of broadcast. Oh, my heart was broken hearing of your new cancer diagnosis. I am so sorry to hear of this and immediately began praying for you and your family! God give you strength, comfort and healing as you continue your courageous treatment.
    Your voice cannot be silenced! You are an honored hero of so many and we need you, Michael Medved! Always the “v as in Victory” is your moniker!
    Victory Michael!
    Godspeed,
    Bernadette B.

  116. Rose Renner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    Michael,
    Your radio show was the highlight of my day. Your intellect and wisdom is phenomenal. I will add you to my prayer list and wish you and your family the best in this journey. You will be sorely missed until your return. Be positive and keep your faith strong.

  117. JGUY  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:43 pm

    Speedy and full recovery is my prayer for you Michael……..I have been a Medhead for
    about eight years and went to Israel with you several years ago… You are a friend
    and I am already looking forward to your return to the air… sounds like you
    have some great pinch hitters lined up but alas they’re not the head Medhead.
    Get Well…

  118. Dennis and Pam  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:43 pm

    We are saddened when we heard you talk to your audience about your cancer! My wife never misses your segment! We have for years come to many functions that you spoke at and a brilliant person that you are we always went away better informed and enriched.
    The minute my wife heard the news she got on the phone to her BSF(bible study fellowship) leaders and put you on their prayer list, also called our friend who goes to a mega church, as well as ourselves will put you on our church’s prayer list sunday! We will be waiting for your return all healed and well! God Bless You.

  119. Juanita  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    Michael, you are in my prayers. Save your voice and continue writing your book while God works His healing miracle to make you whole again. You will be missed, but hopefully, not for long.

  120. Michael Jones  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    Mr. Medved:

    I was driving home when you made your announcement. What followed was your best hour of radio, ever. It made it somewhat difficult for me to drive, for many reasons. I know you’re a guy who doesn’t seek sympathy or attention, so thank you for opening up that hour to allow your listeners to show you the admiration, respect and love you have earned over the years. You’re a 100% class act. I look forward to your return. Your best days are yet to come.

    You’re in my prayers, brother.

  121. Jeannette Sumpter  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    You, your voice, your knowledge and your ideas have become a significant part of my life over the past several years, Michael. I wish now that I had told you this personally at Roanoke last weekend, but I held back – feeling that you might tire of being pressed by your fans. I noticed your fatigue and this explains it. I am glad you are being compelled to take this break. Use it to restore your strength, but also to treasure moments with Diane and your family. I will miss you, but so look forward to your return and to your new book.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you,
    Jeannette
    Bothell, WA

  122. WCollins  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    My prayers and thoughts for a fast and full recovery.

    I can relate, last year I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), a form of head and neck cancer. Tests revealed cancer in the lymph nodes on the left side of my neck, at the base of my tongue (which is common), and in my right tonsil (which is not common). I then underwent 6 1/2 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy treatment and finished treatment the day before Thanksgiving.

    Mainly because of the radiation, I could not take food orally and had a G-Tube installed. On Christmas, I had some mashed potatoes. Today, I had a jelly donut from Dunkin Donuts and half a slice of Sicilian pizza from my favorite pizza joint. I’m saving the other half for later tonight.

    I still have a ways to go, but never give up. Never!

    I don’t regret having cancer, I do regret that I’ll never be allowed to donate another pint of blood. I probably donated 40-50 pints of blood too. It was something I enjoyed and it’s so easy to do.

  123. Mike  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    Bless you and your family. You have strong faith, family, and millions of supporters that love you. Keep the faith. Best of luck. Mike in Philly.

  124. Kathy Trainor  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    I was very saddened to listen to your announcement today. I have enjoyed your show for years. You are one of the few voices of reason (based upon facts not feelings) heard on the radio today. My best friend of 57 years who lives in Oregon is recovering from December laryngeal cancer surgery after just having completed chemo and radiation only 3 months previously. She is doing well. It is very hard to watch her recover. She is brave and fierce and rarely complains. Her fierce determination makes us all who love her, feel better She is a comfort to us all. As I know you will be to your loved ones and all of us who will await your return.

  125. Patti  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    Prayers to you

  126. Paul T Urrea MD  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    Dear Michael, we’ll be praying for your full recovery. You are my favorite talk show host. You’re smart and “spot on” so many issues. I, too, had cancer in my throat area (thyroid cancer) in 2006. Thank God, I’ve had a complete recovery. God-willing, that will be the same for you, too. We share the same college experience (Morse 1977). Hopefully, the parallels in education and political orientation will be mimicked in your health outcome. God’s blessing to you and your family!

  127. Chayil Rasmussen  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Longtime listener here. I have always had the greatest and utmost respect for Michael. I am sorry to hear about the cancer, but I know that HaShem can and will heal Michael. I will say Mi Shaberakh as well as pray the healing scriptures from Tehillim. MIchael, we are in this fight together. You are not alone. Your loyal listeners stand with you to beat this. I pray that you will be totally and completely healed and have a complete recovery. Shalom and blessings to you.

  128. Tish  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    Michael, when I heard your announcement today, it saddened me, you have become like family to me. I have been listening to you for the last ten years and will miss you. Praying for a speedy and full recovery.

  130. MikeR  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    This news hit me in the gut as if a close family member had made this announcement. Mike, I’m not really a praying sort of guy but I will bend the knee for you tonight. Get well soon my friend.

  131. Sue Walsh  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    Michael, I listen to you everyday and you keep me inspired on so many levels. To learning more about anything and everything, and keeping hopeful about the future of this greatest nation on God’s green earth. I pray that you recovery fully and are able to return to doing what you love, and what we love. All of our prayers and love to you and your family.

    God Bless.

  132. John  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    I shall miss listening to you very much, and look forward to your triumphant return! Both my wife and I are cancer survivors. We beat it, and you willl, too!

  133. Martha Travis  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Tears started to fall as I listen to your broadcast today making me aware that you touch me on a deeper level than I would have imagined. I think it is because of the optimistic way you share your passionate devotion to this great country. I enjoy every aspect of your broadcast; your history lessons, the political debates, your perspective on current issues and your dedication to God.

    May God bless you. Take good care of yourself. I look forward to listening to you again soon.

  134. Hank Dmochowski  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Michael, you have been a part of my drive home from work for so long. I just want you to know that you and your family will be a part of my prayers until the Lord heals you! You are such an important part of so many people’s lives, and you are not done yet! God bless you! Number 6: 24-26. May the Lord bless you abundantly.

  135. amy  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:10 pm

  136. Kim Schiewetz  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    God goes with you, no doubt. And that’s a good thing for us, because we need you — and your reasoned, intelligent and necessary voice — back as soon as you know it’s right to return.

  137. Robert Collins  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    Michael,
    I have been listening to you for 15 years and I can honestly say you are my favorite talk show host. I can also say I have learned a great deal from you. Thank you!

    Take this time for yourself, love your family, and fight the fight. We will anxiously awaiting your return.

    Best Regards,

  139. Jerrie Carreras  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    God be with you Michael. While not a faithful listener, the times that I did were always insightful. I too had cancer two years ago so I understand the angst you are experiencing. Keep the faith. Here is a prayer for you: Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen to me today that you and I together can’t handle.

    Heavenly Father, walk through my house and take away all worry’s and illnesses, and please watch over and heal my family and friends. Bring quiet where there is chaos, bring light where there is darkness. Put love in our hearts. In Jesus’s name, Amen!

  140. Terry  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    Michael, I just recently found your show and have grown to become a big fan.Yours is a thinking person’s program, insightful and interesting.
    Im finding my way spiritually but I will pray for your recovery in my own way, we sorely need a voice like yours on the airways.

    Michael

    I am a long-time member of your radio family. I cried when I heard your news today. But, as you did, I was smiling from ear to ear after hearing your ” victor not victim ” mindset. And all those great calls from other victors.

    God bless you and your family
    Christian

  142. Kevin Whelan  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:16 pm

    I have been a loyal listener of your show for more than fifteen years. I respect you more than anybody in public life and I cannot tell you the impact and influence you have had in my own life. I do not call in to radio shows or post to blog threads online. Today I just had to offer my love and support for you and your family. Please know how important you are to us in your faithful audience – we will be here when you return.

    Get well, K J Whelan

    Dear Michael,
    You’ve become such a lively part of our home conversations over the last several years. I listen to your podcasts almost everyday…your insights spur lively debate and discussions, giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and understanding of issues, and to aid my ability to make cogent arguments with those who may not agree with my more conservative points of view. Thank you so much for what you do and what, I feel certain, you will continue to do.
    I’m counting on you to care for yourself first and foremost so that you can ultimately return to us.
    God bless you and keep you safe as you make your recovery.

    Having a serious cancer diagnosis was the strangest gift I ever got…10 years ago.
    I will remember you and your family in my prayers. It was prayers from many people that got me through cancer and it is prayer that keeps me grateful for many daily blessings every day.
    May God keep you safe and give you a peaceful heart.

    Dear Michael, I was sad and surprised to hear of your condition today. I pray for your complete cure and return to the airways, for loyal listeners like me; even more for you and your family. I had stage three squamous cell cancer of the tongue and throat in 2001. I too was told by my dentist to get checked out by an E.N.T. specialist or an Oral Surgeon. I did and was told in Jan. that year of my cancer; I was shocked since I never smoked. I did drink heavily in my twenties, which may have caused it but my Oncologist said it might have but it was probably just chance. I just listened to your Friday Jan. 30th show: I tried to call in the last half hour but kept getting a busy signal. Many people trying to reach you I’m sure. Treatments must have improved since 2001 so you’ll be fine. I also had good teeth before my radiation treatments but in the months and years that followed I had many problems. My salivary glands were burned out so my teeth slowly crumbled, I had 6 pulled in 2003 then developed necrosis of the jaw and had part of it removed. I developed necrosis again in 2009 then had surgery to remove it and the rest of my teeth ; this was devastating but I learned to adapt. I drink 2 cans of Ensure a day and I have a Nuti-Bullet blender so I’ve learned to enjoy what I can. I hope rad. treatments are more precise today and you avoid such problems. I was a liberal in my youth from a long line of Democrats ; my first vote was for McGovern in 72. I was apolitical then until Reagan came along, my parents loved him as did I. I’ve been listening to you since 2003 or 4, and hope to listen for many more years. Rush, Laura Ingraham and Dennis Prager are also great but I think you are the smartest and most interesting talk show host of all. I’m 62 now, glad to be here hopeing and praying for your complete recovery in this greatest country on God’s green earth. Tim

  146. Irma I.  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:22 pm

    Michael, I have enjoyed listening to your program for many years now and you are my favorite radio host, always dispensing good sense and good humor encompassing so many subjects. I have some of your CDs and have played them often, and have given some as gifts.
    You are in my prayers for a complete recovery and that your treatment cam be tolerated without too much difficulty. I pray your voice will return to its good quality as before.

    I praise God for your faith and trust in Him. Without that your treatment would be more difficult to endure. I thank Him for your lovely wife and loving family. You are blessed.

  147. Susan Edelman  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    get well, return soon! my afternoon drive won’t be the same without listening to your intelligent, realistic commentary.

  148. Chris  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    I feel like I’ve been kicked in the gut but your attitude makes me stand up straight, like you.

    Stay strong, Clan Medved. We’re with you in heart and spirit and look forward to the day where you get back on the air and share your gift we enjoy so much. The guests you have lined up for the interim are almost enough to make me feel a little guilty for your absence I’ll enjoy them so much.

    I’m just now resubbing so don’t be too long in getting back to work!

  149. Nancy Lampton  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    Love your positive attitude! I’ll be watching for your columns and waiting for your book. It sounds intriguing! I was honored to have a lively dinner with you several years ago as the result of an auction, so I still feel a personal connection. I’m glad you have a nearly-RN in the family; they are the best and most enthusiastic educators. Be well, Michael.

  150. Joan  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    Get well soon, Michael. I listen every day and will miss you ’till you come back!

  151. Kim  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Praying for you and Diane and your kids, Michael, since the moment you made the announcement on your show. Yours is the only “big name” show I can listen to without being affected in a way that tempts me to become derisive, or smug, or angry, or fearful, or impatient. You call good good and evil evil, while respecting human beings as made in the image of God. And you look for the potentially positive side of every situation. Take care of yourself, and take whatever time is needed before returning.

  152. Mae Smith  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:33 pm

    I’ve listened to every single broadcast of your show for over 5 years (as a medhead) and regularly before that. I’m saddened by the news, but hopeful for you and your family. Get well soon.

  154. Jennifer  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:36 pm

    love you so much! praying for your speedy recovery – your show is nearly the highlight of each week day (2nd to the Bible and my family) I look forward to Mr Boze and Mark Davis, come back soon Michael!)

  155. Paula Wisner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:38 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I heard it in your voice today. I know you were out yesterday and today your voice changed, noticeably, to me. I thought that you had some bug that is affecting your voice and I wondered how you can keep on truckin’ when you sounded like you just didn’t feel good. I am so glad you are taking this time to do what needs to be done, for yourself. You are always there for us, day in and day out. You are in my prayers, Michael. Rooting for your recovery. Rest and get well. There will be sooooo much to talk about, when you return.

  156. Janet Daugherty Drysdale  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    Michael. I wish you well. Swedish is a good place. I am now an Olympic Peninsula resident. I met you at Yale during your hitch hiking days. Have been following you ever since. Take car and get well. All will miss you until you are back.

  157. James Casey  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    We need you. God bless you.

  158. Tom  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:40 pm

  159. Paula Wisner  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:42 pm

    Oh my, would you look at these, loving, heartfelt posts. It sure says a lot about your radio community and how much you mean to us.

  160. Lane Taglio  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    Michael, Over the years you have always encouraged and enlightened my entire family. I now wish I was somehow able to do the same for you. Of course my prayers are with you and as such, very much look forward to your return! You are needed in so many ways!

  162. Virginia L Chapman  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:46 pm

    Dear Michael, I am so sorry you have had to go through this, and I honor you in the way you have handled this diagnosis. You are exactly the same age I am, and I tuned in on the internet and heard your story today. I myself just returned from my radiation treatment! I also feel well and I KNOW you will be WELL and you will return! YOU ARE AWESOME and we NEED YOU!! I know GOD will bless you. You are genuinely loved. I feel that your voice was possibly attacked but OUR GOD IS GREATER than this attack on you. I often wondered if you would ever get ‘push back’ for all you do. But still, YOU will be well lifted up in prayer and I know you will be HEALED and strong. REST, REST- RECOVER–YOU will be STRONG AGAIN–for the rest of your fight!!! We are with you 100%!!!

  163. Deborah Schechter  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I feel as if you are a member of our family and your news today was disturbing, but the way that you handled the transmission of that news was uplifting and inspiring. You are a man of much courage, that is clear. I have long admired your wisdom, your ability to express that wisdom, and the faith that drives you. As a fellow orthodox Jew, I share your views on many issues and wish you a refuah sheleimah bekarov. Please provide us with your Hebrew name and the name of your mother so that we can all daven for your complete recovery.
    I await your return to the airwaves with pleasurable anticipation. I know it will be soon, judging from your gutsy and determined spirit. Shabbat Shalom.

  164. Ron Howard  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    Our son-in-law is a 4 year survivor of throat cancer. Our family will pray for you and your family as if you are a family member because in a way you are. We believe in the power of prayer, and my promise to you is we will be faithful in our prayers for you. God bless you, and God bless this greatest nation on God’s green earth!

  165. Dian  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    Dear Michael I Love You! I am praying for your speedy recovery. You have been my anchor in a world of storms. You have to get well because I want to go on a trip with you to Isreal. God Bless you and your wonderful family Dian B.

  166. Elisa, Bothell, WA  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    Dear Michael: I feel like you are a friend, who I love to hear from daily. You will be missed, but I know you’ll be back. I have met you a few times at various local appearances, and you were the first one to write in my son’s Right Turns book that you were confident he’d get an appointment to the USNA. In fact, he is there now in his first year, so you had that special knowledge. 🙂 He treasures that autographed book! It almost seems like a spiritual attack that you’d get throat cancer as God uses your voice to spread truth and hope to so many. For this reason, I believe God who is the King will give you victory over this cancer. You are in my prayers…all of my family will be lifting you up. Thank you for your many years of serving this greatest nation on God’s green earth!

  167. Sharla  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    Michael,
    You spend three hours five days a week teaching me, encouraging me, and helping me grasp the political landscape of America and the world. As often the case, I listen to you on my phone while running errands. If someone would have bumped into me today at the grocery store, they would have encountered a tearful, sniffling woman stumbling down the isles behind her cart, unable to concentrate on her shopping. I had told my husband last week that I thought “something was up with Michael” as too many of your shows were interviews and you just weren’t “there” like usual. I even went so far as to call the number for your show to see if I could find out what was “up”. It never occurred to me that it would be your health; I was just so taken by surprise with your announcement today. I will miss you terribly these next weeks/months; the rhythm of my days just won’t be what they’ve been for so many years due to your absence. But I am going to think of you on somewhat of a “deployment”………..away from me/us but not gone from me/us and fully intending to return. I will join with so many others in praying for a complete and swift healing. I will set my sight on the expected day of your return, and until that day arrives…………may the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, may He lift up His countenance upon you, and most of all, Michael, may He give you peace (Numbers 6:24-26). Amen and Amen – let it be so.
    Sharla

  169. david  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    Dear Michael , thank you for turning this “immigrant boy” into a conservative. And for your positive and sensible take, on the political talk radio tedium. God bless you, please get better soon !

  170. Chas Wilson  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    For once, it is not “another great day in this greatest nation on God’s green earth.” I am sorry that you and your family have to go through this, Michael. I pray that your recovery will be swift and complete. You and your show have become an important part of my life. I don’t always agree with you (most of my disagreement is minor) but I deeply respect your intellect, breadth, and fairness. You’re a good man and very entertaining. I selfishly want you around for a much longer time. If, for whatever reason, you are not able to return to radio, please know that your time at the microphone has been a treasure for so many of us. May God bless you!

  171. Bill  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Dear Michael,

    I really enjoy your show and listen just about every day. The history shows are my favorites. I just wanted to wish you well and hope you come back to radio soon.

    Thanks

  172. Kenny Broussard  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Dear Michael,

    You and your family will be in my prayers as you finish your treatment for your cancer. I just finished my stem cell transplant at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and am in full remission. I’ve been in the pharmaceutical sales business for many years and spent long hours listening to your show as I traveled to my next sales call. Cancer teaches many lessons, mainly how quick we take for granted so many wonderful simple aspects of life. I know you will do great, and look forward to hearing you back on the radio!
    All the Best!
    Kenny B.

  174. Don Ward  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    Dear Michael,

    Thank you for sharing your health situation with your listeners today. The folks who called in to wish you a speedy recovery spoke for many of us especially, Tom in Glendora (one of my favorite callers).

    This is to let you know that my wife and I will keep you in our daily prayers and you will be placed on our church’s prayer list.

    And just as you proclaimed, you are a ‘Victor’, you are ‘Blessed’.

    We trust that you are in good hands and will return soon, in prefect timing, to once again share your wisdom, humor, compassion, movie reviews, and to once again say, “This is the greatest country on God’s green earth”!

    We are looking forward to reading the new book you are currently working on.

    All the Best, God Bless you and your family.

    Baruch Bashan,

    Love & Blessings,

    ~ Don & Joanna

  175. Jeffrey Taylor, Brecksville,Ohio  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    My Dear Michael, I have so much to say and I Hope and Pray that God’s Holy Spirit guides me in my words to you. First things 1st. As a loyal listener for the better part of 20 years, I have learned a few things about you and have wanted to convey them for a long time, as recently as a few moons ago while waiting on hold when you were a guest on Hugh Hewitt’s program. I want you to know that it hasn’t always been easy chasing you up and down the dial before your great Partnership with SRN. I am deeply appreciative of your strong and consistent support of Evangelical Christians and your ability to articulate the difference to callers who don’t know. Over the years I have Prayed for 2 things for you, that God would enable you to see that Jesus is Thee Messiah, and that it would be His Will with your great influence that You would be Chosen as 1 of the 144,000 Jews to Evangelize the Earth, as it is written. Also, I am a Stage IV Head & Neck (throat) Cancer Survivor who will celebrate 11 years of being healthy and Cancer-free on Feb.11th. To God alone be The Glory for He poured out His Great Mercy on me! I live just 5 minutes from your Salem affiliate WHK 1420,( Ohio’s oldest radio station) and yet have sadly missed your occasional appearances here. Finally, it was Osler who coined the phrase “Doctors Treat. God Heals! I Truly believe that You, Sir, are going to discover that personally and intimately for yourself. I hope that you take great comfort that, not just myself, but thousands of Born Again Christians who are also loyal listeners will be lifting you up in Prayer to God’s Great Throne and Praying for your complete Healing. I promise that the next time that you come to Independence, I will be there to shake your hand and sing God’s Praises for your Great Healing. Michael, in knowing something about the Journey you have just begun, please know, should you desire that I am here to talk with you when you reach the difficult part. Sincerely, Jeffrey Taylor.

  176. leslie  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    Dear Michael,

    After your treatment is done, you will feel better than you have in a very long time! A friend of mine went through this last year and he realized, once the treatment was done, that he was feeling better than he had for a couple of years.

    Remember, NUTRITION is key. I’m not a food nut or a health nut, but I think in a case like yours, smoothies with all of those antioxidants like blueberries, kale, etc. can help.

    You are MISSED and LOVED. But, I know you will feel better in six months and this will be behind you.

    Sincerely,

    Leslie

  177. Greg Saltis  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    Michael,

    I am very sorry to hear the news. Best wishes and much prayer for a quick and complete recovery and anticipate your return to WHK here in Cleveland ASAP.

    Sincerely,
    Greg Saltis

  178. Louise L  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    I cried while driving, upon hearing your news today. Like many of your supporters, I always look forward to your show, so addicting that I sometimes get late visiting my next patient (am a physical therapist) because I wanted to hear more of what you have to say. I will pray for you and your family. Please don’t make haste coming back to work… Health is Wealth. With sincere affection.
    Louise, Los Alamitos, CA

    Thank you for sharing openly about this. I don’t know you, but Erick Erickson does, who sat in for El Rushbo, as apparently you used to do. I listen to Rush daily (not sure you’re in our market) but 6 degrees and all, right? I think a little time off can benefit us sometimes. I recently took 3 weeks off from my music gig due to illness, and the doc told me to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. So I rested a lot and switched to decaf. It really really helped. But rest up buddy and feel better please. Glad you have good doctors helping you now.

  184. doug myers  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:19 pm

    I am praying for you Michael.

  185. Jim Bird  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Dear Michael,
    Why someone who epitomizes the highest expression of goodness in all that you think, say and do, has to be seemingly tested, can only be for a singular purpose known to God. Perhaps it is as teacher, extending God’s goodness into the world on how to handle the trials and tribulations we all face five days per week.
    Our family, friends and church have you and yours in our prayers. We will see and hear you back on the air long before June.
    Thank you for all you do,
    Jim Bird

  186. Carol A. McQuillen  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    I rarely take time to write on msg boards or spend much time on a computer at all, but I had to stop and drop you line to tell you how i am struck by your determination and solid constitution. i have not a similar experience by which to draw upon, but i try to empathize and imagine how scary it must be to hear those dreaded words from your doctor. As thousands will hear that same diagnosis, maybe i will be one of them one day, i hope you know how encouraging and inspiring it is to hear you decribe your plan to fight this disease. You clearly draw strength from your faith, your family and a multitude of dear friends which causes me refect on how important these relationships are in sickness and in health in all of our lives. As you carry on this fight that will try your soul, i will pray for you along with your deeply carng radio family who you enlighten in such profoud ways daily and who eagerly wait for your return. i have no doubt you will prevail.

  187. Scott Dakers  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Michael,

    It will be a pleasure to pray for you.

    I remember going numb when I was diagnosed with cancer. When I told my wife and kids, I watched each one of them go numb just as I had. I wanted to be strong for them and tell them, tell them not to worry, that everything was going to be okay. In reality, couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t even be there for myself. I couldn’t give them what they needed. They needed a cure. I couldn’t give them that.

    That was three years ago.

    Looking back on it, I am amazed at how fleeting that time of was. I don’t much think about the cancer. There’s been no trace of it these past three years.

    I am, however still overwhelmed with how good our loving G_d is, Who heard our prayers and answered them. Even the way my cancer was discovered in the first place was miraculous. I am convinced G_d wanted to heal me.

    I am also overwhelmed by the love and support of friends who prayed for me and asked G_d to heal me. I was surrounded by people who prayed, went to the hospital with with my wife and sat with her though the five hours of my surgery, praying for both of us. They continued to pray throughout my recovery. They prayed for a good result from the biopsy. They prayed over everything. When the results came back that they got all of the cancer, they rejoiced and thanked G_d. It was as if I was just there to go along for the ride. I did nothing. G_d wanted to answer their prayers… and did.

    The memory of the cancer has faded from my conscious mind, but the overwhelming feeling of thankfulness has not. Cancer truly is a life-changing experience. For me, it became a gift. I saw the goodness of G_d and the love of praying friends at a time when I had nothing to offer but my need.

    We never can “make good” on it. There’s no way we can pay it back. We’re not supposed to. We just get to wait for the time when G_d gives us the gift to be one called to pray for someone who has nothing to offer a need. What we all get is to see is the loving hand of G_d.

    Now, it’s your turn.

    My cancer treatment here in Seattle was excellent, and you’re right, this is the place to be. Still, I know Who really healed me.

    I am thankful G-d has given me the privilege to pray for you. I will look forward to the day I hear G_d has given you the same gift He gave me.

I am just an ignorant construction worker t hat has been much enlightened and educated by listening to you and I will add Larry Elder whom I miss. I like the traditional music you play on Fridays entering your sabbath. I will miss you untill you get back but will be listening to your guest hosts. God speed to you during your recovery. May God bless you and your family. I am 61 years old and have been married 37 years so very much share your appreciation of family. All my love to you and your family. Sincerely, Grant Talley

    You have our prayers and thoughts for a complete recovery. Modern medicine is frequently absolutely miraculous. No reason you shouldn’t share in those miracles.

    We have both had our scares with the big C. It is no fun! We are, however still around to complain about it and those rotten progressives/liberals/PIA’s (medical term for PAIN IN THE xxx).

    Get well soon and return to the GOOD CAUSE.

    BLESSINGS ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

    Michael – I, too, have listened to you for years and am so sorry about your illness. I am also a cancer survivor and I know the awful feelings that go through your mind when you hear that word in relation to yourself. I cried, I told my husband and we prayed. I am now, through God’s grace, free of its terrible hold on my thoughts. My husband and I will pray for your complete recovery and we both look forward to hearing you again very soon on the radio. May God bless you as he has me,

    Mr Medved; arriving to my church in Californai, a friend awaited me with your book on Hollywood. After 20+ years in the pastorate, I still consider your shows so educational, that I rarely miss a day. Mr Prager, Hewitt and you are my companions in the car, as I battle the traffic in Southern California.
    I am a 56 years old American Hungarian, and a cancer survival myself. You will be in my prayers regularly. Look up!
    Best regars;

    I will really miss you and will be saying a prayer every night as I tune in to your show. I was truly saddened to hear of your illness; and your message was uplifting to me and made me think as well how much there is to be grateful for. I will definitely be listening every night as I love all of your stand-ins, especially Mark Davis. Thank you for everything and my very best to you and your wonderful family.

  207. Maureen Rice  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:13 pm

    G*d bless you and yr family in this challenging time, Michael. Even when I completely disagree with you, I know that you are that rare being: the completely honest and most gently tempered of men. You are so needed now! Be well, be strong, and come back to the airwaves soon.

    I wish you well a hundred times a day…. In my heart

    Dear Michael,
    With your unprecedented courage in finding, facing, and sharing truths, you are a strong, undaunted spirit who is a force of light and good in this world. We are privileged to have you as our dear mentor, and we depend on you, and you know it. Please take utmost care of yourself, and get back behind that microphone as soon as possible.
    p.s.:
    Cancer cells thrive on sugar.
    Stress raises blood sugar.
    Sleep deprivation can also raise blood sugar, and so can chronic, low grade dehydration…, all through raising the stress hormones.
    Consider a ketogenic diet to starve the cancer cells- please research and discuss with your MD. Practice yoga breathing, to lower your catecholamine stress hormones.
    Please optimize your sleep, drink lots of water, zap out any stressful thought with positive cognitions “Everything is going to be all right”, “I’m doing my best”, “Nobody’s perfect.”,…
    After all, we are all waiting for you, and sending you our loving thoughts and prayers in this greatest nation on God’s green earth.
    Refuah Shlema

  211. Gabriel  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Michael, I love you like a brother!
    I was shocked and saddened to hear of your recent health problems.
    Shocked because you seem so much larger than life and it was a rude reminder of your mortality.
    Saddened because it is hard to think of you and your family having to go through something some difficult.
    I will pray for you and for those around you (family, doctors) that you may have a speedy recovery and that this experience will somehow turn out to be for some greater good.

  212. Jim Haberman  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    If you provide your Hebrew name, I’d be honored to have my rabbi say a Misheberach on Thursdays of each week at Chabad of Sarasota (FL),

    All the best for a speedy and full recovery.

  213. Mike  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:29 pm

    I’m a grown man and today I broke down in tears hearing the news that you, a dear friend, one I’ve never met, is undergoing such an ordeal. Know you’re loved. Know you’ll be missed. Take care of yourself first. We’re all praying for a speedy and full recovery. May God Bless you and yours.

  214. Matt Valentine  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:32 pm

  216. Dave Cavanaugh  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I had a feeling there was a problem this week, since you miss so few broadcast days. Be strong, get well, and know that we are praying for you. You are a daily inspiration and a wellspring to so many of us.
    God Bless You,
    Dave Cavanaugh

  217. Karen Zarske  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    Dear Michael, I’ve listened to you regularly on the Patriot 960 in Phoenix. VERY sorry to hear about your cancer. My bro-in-law had it 5 yrs ago & is totally clear now. I hope that happens for you. Our God has you in His hands, Karen

  218. Judy  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:39 pm

    Dear Michael: I am deeply saddened to hear this news.

    I will keep you and your family in my daily prayers. You are a strong individual who is willing to deal with adversity head on. That is to your advantage.

    Thank you for your honesty and allowing all of us the opportunity to share this challenge with you. Stay strong – God WILL hear your prayers and with Him all things are possible.

  219. Jim Cortez  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:40 pm

    Good luck and take care of yourself!

  220. Ginger Edwards  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:40 pm

    Michael, when you were away from the microphone this week, I was concerned. You’re my companion on my daily trek across Fort Worth, Texas and your firm, kind voice on conservative issues and pop culture topics is what keeps me coming back day after day. Normally, I stop listening to the radio when I get home because there are other duties, but tonight my husband and I took a short drive and heard you telling about the cancer. So many friends with this wretched disease…You will be in my prayers and may God keep you and speed healing. Keep the faith and be strong. Until you’re back at the microphone, God bless you. You are loved.

  221. Bob  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    OMG, I will pray daily for your safe return to your show, as I have listened to you for nearly 20 years. A Puget Sound resident and a, way more than, 5 year survivor, I know the quality of cancer care in the Seattle area. You will beat this.
    Your voice has been like a friend’s for years. Today’s show raised my concern, immediately. I know how important attitude is, your’so sounds solid and with the love of famity and friends all of this will be less than an unpleasant dream.
    Again, you will have my prayers and my family’s. My the Lord take good care of you and yours.

  227. Ross Howell  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Tears in my eyes as I read this – because our America which is more than a nation needs your voice to remind US about our history and what is so precious about being alive in America. My co worker and I listen to you while we take a 20 minute lunch break (privilege of the self employed who would rather do what we do than sit around) and when we can during travel time. Today, he observed that you sounded like you had something. That is the first hint we have had and it is frightening to think of the Right without you. I am still mourning our loss of Andrew Breitbart who was also an incredible conservative warrior in our battle to defend US from the avarice and greed which Madison admonished US to keep in check in Federalist 51. May the divine providence about which you write intercede on your behalf and keep you in our army fighting the political insurgency attacking US from within. The greatest nation on God’s green earth needs you!!!!

  228. Susan A. Condon  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Michael,

    You will be in my prayers. On the other site I e-mailed you a detailed letter. You’ve been through a great battle. But, prayerfully, you will return at the beginning of March or mid-March, fully healed and recovered.
    I battled with thyroid cancer and had one radiation capsule after the surgery. I also went to International Bio-Care in Tijuana for the alternative treatment. It’s a marvelous holistic hospital, compared to Cancer Centers of America, only alternative in its approach. I’m still taking the immune booster tablets, daily, from IBC which I order and receive from San Diego.
    I’ll be praying for you and look forward to hearing that you’re back about mid-March.
    God Bless you!

  229. William Mas  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    Dear Michael,
    It was great to meet you in person at the KRLA 870AM USS Iowa event and see you broadcast in 2013 along with Dennis Prager … you have had a tremendous impact on me for years and I listen every day to your show. May our Lord hear our prayers for your speedy recovery and complete healing and we are looking forward to your return to the radio in this Greatest Nation on God’s Green Earth. Get well soon my dear friend.

  230. George Pindroh  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    Michael:
    Very saddened and surprised to hear about your health news
    on today’s broadcast! Am supporting you 100% with my prayers! As a Catholic Christian I say a rosary daily…a very
    powerful avenue of prayer! I will be praying for your complete
    recovery and for your family. We have met many times when you have visited Cleveland. I have always enjoyed running
    American history trivia by you. You have always done quite
    well with my questions! God bless you Michael!
    George, your American history friend in Cleveland

  231. Rick Watson  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:14 pm

I have no doubt that you will come through this and be talking and educating us all very soon. We all await your return “in this greatest nation in Gods green earth”.

  232. Bill in Atlanta  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    Michael, I’ve been a fan for many years and if ever there was a day that I wanted to call in, it was today. With strong faith, family support and the thousands of prayers that you’ll have, Recovery is just around the corner. I think we all are very impressed with your outlook, attitude, wisdom and strength. That’s why we listen. Now, by applying these attributes, we know that you will return to us even wiser, stronger, more insightful and more courageous than ever.
    Wishing you and all of your family the very sincerest best wishes and prayers,
    We will await your triumphant return!

  233. Mary Victoria Dombrowski  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:23 pm

    Michael,
    All the best to you and your family. When I think of your and your voice, Rush and his deafness, the sudden death of Breitbart, and troubles in my own family, I feel we are all being tried by fire. May angels stand by your bedside, guide the hands of your doctors, and bring you safely back to my kitchen radio at noon in the very near future. I remember the last time you were off the air between contracts – it was hard without you! Be back soon.

  234. Jeff Smith  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:27 pm

    My family and I will have you in our thoughts and prayers. Even though we’ve never met, being a regular listener for the past 15+ years, I feel like you are a part of the family. I hope everything goes well, you have a speedy recovery and are back on the air very soon!

  235. G Cole  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:27 pm

    Prayers to you. Stage 3 base of tongue squamous cell here. Never smoked or drank. 15 years and I don`t have cancer today…survivors will understand. Its a tough treatment and it takes time to recover both mentally and physically. All the best and good luck.

  236. Richard Tuukwila Wa  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    Hi Michael,

    I am long time listener to your show and was moved by your willingness to be open about your medical condition.

    God has his hand on you and I know you will be back sooner then expected

    Wishing you a speedy recover

  237. Kevin Aloha  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    May God give you and your family the strength to persevere through this challenge. As the husband of an 8 year cancer survivor, I can understand the challenge this presents. Hearing your attitude on today’s show only shows me that this will only result in the strengthening of your faith, marriage, family and friendships. Look forward to seeing/hearing you back here on Oahu! A hui hou!

    Michael — We are crying and praying all at the same time. You are God’s gift to each one of us, especially as we watch our country lurching from one crisis to another. You are guiding us through with your great knowledge, sense of history, wisdom, analysis, and good cheer. Whenever we begin to despair, you remind us that we live in the greatest nation on God’s green earth. God bless you and your family always. You will be in our prayers.

    I feared the worse when informed a few days ago that you and Diane would not be participating in the Israel tour. My prayers to you and your family for a full and speedy recovery. Perhaps you will feel good enough to hold one of those get-togethers for we tourists once we return from Israel so we can share our experiences and celebrate your recovery and return to the air.

    God bless.

    Michael, God speed your recovery, you are such a blessing to me. I have been listening to you every day since forever, whenever you started! Was it 1989? Plus repeat shows on weekends. Love your History programs, and movie reviews. So, I will miss you so much but praying for you to come back soon better than ever. Thank you for all you have taught me so far. 🙂

  255. Nick L.  •  Jan 30, 2015 at 11:55 pm

    Michael, I am patiently awaiting your return. You have what it takes to be back lightning fast. I look forward to the next show and will continue to listen to the show while you are recovering. I look forward to Lanny Davis helping to keep the show interesting. He’s a class act.

I am also a Catholic, and will now be including you in my intentions, as I say the rosary each morning on the way to work. God bless you, Michael.

  258. RS  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:02 am

    Mike, I’ve been listening since ’98 and you have brought me so much insight, balance and hearty laughs that I dread the day you go off the air. Of all your qualities, your optimism over the years has impressed me the most. May it serve you well now. Prayers to you and your family, and I look forward to hearing you again in March.

    Michael you have been more like a beloved college professor to me than just a radio talk show host. I have learned so much from listening to you all these years as I carried mail for the U.S. Postal service. You filled many mundane and repetitive hours for me with a lifetime of knowledge and insight. Thank you for your service to all of us these past many years. Please have a speedy recovery and come back to your listeners as soon as you feel up to it. We really need and rely on you out here.

    I don’t always agree with your analysis, but enjoy the show (particularly 3rd hour on Thursday and conspiracy days).

    Take all the time you need. Rest, relax.

    Michael, When I left my job of almost 20 years in June of 1996 I knew there was a reason. While family issues emerged 6 months later I was fortunate enough to hear your first broadcast here in Seattle and have listened ever since. You are always the voice of reason in a turbulent world filled with ever harsh words. My sister and I joined you and your family in 2007 on your trip to Israel. Danny helped retrieve our baggage from the carousal in Tel Aviv and we managed to almost get lost at the airport. Now Danny is a husband with a wonderful wife and how lucky you all are with your great family. Your health and that of your family is now in my nightly prayers. May G-d protect and heal you. Looking forward to your smiling voice on its return to the airwaves.

    Thanks for always being there and lifting my spirits on many an afternoon. You have been a great teacher for my homeschooled kids. We read your book, Right Turns as part of our curriculum, and listened to your history CDs. Thanks for sharing your brilliant mind with us and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Many prayers for your quick recovery.

  273. Marilyn Olney  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:33 am

    I have been a faithful listener since your days of filling in for Rush, My husband was also a faithful listener before his death. We met you one time. May God be with you; you will be in my prayers daily I look forward your new book. Your staff has also been very helpful when I had a question. God Bless! Marilyn

  274. Fred Webster  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:42 am

    Michael, I moved to the Seattle area about the same time you did, back in the fall of 1995. I have listened to you since then. 10 years later I moved to Boise and became a Medhead so I could listen to you online. I get your podcasts daily and I never miss a show. I even had the pleasure of dinig with you as part of the Boy Scouts fundraiser to counter the United way dissociation at el Gaucho years ago. I’m a bit of a groupie, guess. I couldn’t be more crushed to hear of your medical condition, abut if there is a man with more faith, family and friends than you, I surely do not know him. May God be with you every step of your journey. May your family be blessed and strengthened in your faith, and may you persevere through these days of treatment and return healthy soon. Know that you have the most loyal audience in the world and we all, agree-ers and disagree-ers alike are praying for you.

    Dear Michael,

    We have met several times in Honolulu, HI and spent an evening together at the Burn’s house. I listen to you everyday and always enjoy your insights. When I listened to you today I noticed that your voice was different and I thought you had a cold. I was so saddened to hear about your cancer and feared you were going to leave the airwaves for good. I am praying that you will beat this cancer soon and can be back on the air. America is, indeed, the greatest country on God’s green earth, and you are one of the great people that make it so great. I look forward to reading you new book and listening to your wisdom on the radio again soon. God bless you. Gregg

  277. Sherry  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:09 am

    Michael, our family is praying for you. Odd that we build relationships with those that we don’t know personally. Yet we do, because we “talk” with you every M-F, for years, across miles and airwaves. You know us, and we feel we know you, as family. I was so happy to meet you years ago at a Medved, Prager, and Hewitt event, and felt I met a long lost brother (smart, wise, a mentor from another mother). We are Christians, and your family is Jewish, and we appeal to the same God (one and only) for your health, peace, comfort and healing. Blessings to you and your family, and we will reunite on air when your strength fully recovers, and it will. God Bless you and your family!!

  278. Shelley  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:19 am

    I am praying for you Michael. God knows we all need you!

  279. Joan  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:27 am

    We are all praying for you, Mr Medved. Heal quickly and come back soon. 🙂 We miss you.

  280. A. Woodson  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:30 am

    Michael, I was very saddened to hear about your diagnosis this afternoon. I had been listening from the first hour when you opened your show and said you were going to share some exciting news. I was intrigued, and was speculating in my mind what you would be announcing. I thought that perhaps you were going to take a long vacation with your wife, Diane. Needless to say, when I heard about your cancer, I was flabbergasted. It was the last thing I expected to hear. No, Michael, you are not a “victim” You are our warrior, and I admire your strength and character. You have been a great warrior for the “right” issues and I have no doubt that you will not be less of a warrior against this battle that awaits you. But, you are not alone, Michael, because you have thousands of us on your side. Please know I will join the thousands of your faithful listeners in their prayers for you and your family as you all face this battle. May God bless you and your family.

  281. Patti  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:39 am

    May your recovery be quick and complete. We are praying for you, and looking forward to the day you are back on the radio. God bless and keep you and your family.

  282. Rona H  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:42 am

    Our prayers go out for a speedy, complete recovery. We will miss you, but grateful you left your show in competent hands.

  283. Sam Ferraro  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:49 am

    All the best to you Michael! God bless. You will be in my prayers.

  284. Jane O'Brian  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:12 am

    Michael, I was stunned to see this news and I literally broke and cried. We love you and your show and all you do for not only this country but the world. You are a shining beacon of light and hope in a thick black darkness. I called your show in 2001 right after the academy awards and found out you loved a tree grows in Brooklyn. Like that tiny little tree that grew and flourished so will your wisdom and presence forever. My husband and I are praying daily for you and Diane and your children. God Bless you Michael. You are… OUR HERO!!!

  285. Laurie Geyer  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:29 am

    I will keep you in my prayers and look forward to your quick and full recovery!!!- Laurie

  286. Francis (Frank) Shaw  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:34 am

    Bless you and I pray for your quick recovery. I listen to your program often and hope to hear you again soon.

  287. Sharon Riley  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 4:28 am

    I, too, was shocked to hear another voice, rather than yours, on Thursday. As former Liberals, we’ve been blessed by your clear and concise reasons for joining the Conservative ranks in the ongoing battle for the soul of our wonderful country. God has truly shed His light on us, and will continue to do so for you, as well. We eagerly look forward to your swift return, your new book, and the insights you’ll provide to we who love the History stories from your store. My husband and I will be praying for you, your family, and your work crew, and your hosts. I had a very nice conversation with you years ago about the movie, “Babe.” You didn’t steer me wrong then, and I appreciated the time you spent on the phone with me. Thanks.

  288. James W.  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 4:35 am

    Michael, I have been a listener for many years and was very sad to hear about your illness. You are a tremendous voice of reason and clarity, and we need you very much. Please get well soon!

  289. Wendy k  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 6:31 am

    Dear Michael. ..you have touched many of us throughout the years through your work which you are so passionate about. Well we are passionate about you and passionate in our hopes for your hopefully very speedy recovery. Sending love and light your way!

  290. Mimi  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 7:35 am

    Michael, as a conservative Jew, former NY’er, living in W. Wa, you are a sane voice in the wilderness. So sad to hear this news but PLEASE don’t lose faith. PLEASE give yourself time to rest and heal. May G-D bless you, Diane and family. Prayers are with you.

  291. Gene M  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 8:04 am

    You will be miss by me. I will pray for G_d’s blessings on you and your family.

  292. George  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 8:11 am

    God bless you Michael!
    A close friend of mine has fully recovered from throat cancer. There will be some dark times during treatment but keep looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. As a cancer survivor also, I can say the ordeal has helped me put so many things into perspective. Stay strong!

  293. Jules and MartinaR  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Dear Michael,Martina and I will pray for you in Philadelphia.I just retired s a radiation oncologist 2years ago after 65 years and have seen all of the advances in the treatment combinations,as well as preventive methods to minimize treatment effects on teeth.Several years ago it was found that this type of cancer can be caused byHPVirus in men who never smoked or had heavy alcohol use .Good luck with your treatment program we await your return to the airwaves.Jules and MartinaR

    Our prayers are with you!

    I also can’t wait until your return! My 3:00-6:00 EST will not be the same without that greatest voice of reason of the radio. Thank you for your support and setting the record straight on Vietnam.

  299. Nina  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 9:47 am

    Dear MM,

    I can’t spend a day without hearing your ideas and commentaries. I am sure you will recover and continue to inform and educate. Thank you for everything you do.

  300. Rob in Bucks County  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 9:49 am

    Michael,
    My thoughts will be with you in this fight against cancer. You are surely the smartest man on radio and make my drive home every day much more manageable and meaningful. Good luck to you and your family as you drive to beat cancer and return to the microphone.

    Rob C.

  301. Lewis Seiler  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Michael,

    I am not sure my first message went through, will be praying for your full and complete recovery, I do not know if you have been receiving my Christmas card with the two terriers, Fiona and Lilly, but the three of us await your return but only when you are ready, you are the best!

  302. Doug Leonard  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:07 am

    Michael, The outpouring of comments to you speaks to how important your contributions have been to so many. I too wish you all the best and my prayers are with you. I have been a listener to you for years and come to your talks when you are back in Philly. The deepness of my comments and others comes from you sharing in an incredibly intimate forum of talk radio. As a therapist I know how much I get back from working with patients even as I help them. I’m sure the same happens for you and I know you will miss us as much as we miss you. Come back as soon as you are healthy and take care. Love, Doug

  303. Tanya Smith  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:14 am

    I’ll be praying. You are the first sane voice in American that caught my attention and captured my heart conservative.

  304. David W. Selway  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:17 am

    Michael,
    As a non-believing liberal I disagree with most of your positions on politics and religion, but when I heard you talking about your cancer yesterday I was deeply moved. During that talk I think that I learned more about you as a person than I have while listening to your show over the past few years. I wish you the best and hope for a full and speedy recovery . You are obviously a good and sincere man.
    David Selway

  305. Angelo Mack  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:21 am

    Michael,

    I enjoy your radio show very much and it was wonderful meeting you when you visited Greenville, SC. I’m wishing you a speedy and full recovery and will be praying for you and your family. God Bless.

  306. Mary C.  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:26 am

    Have listened to you in the middle of the night for two years. I love your calming voice in an unreasonable world. You will be in my prayers until I hear that you are ready to return to broadcasting, which, hopefully, will be very soon.

  307. Robert  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:28 am

    Michael,
    Get well, get back here and go to work. We at my office all wish you a very quick recovery.

  308. Janet Podczerwinski  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:36 am

    Dear Michael,
    I maintain that you are the the Best and Most Informed Radio Talk Show Host and the Best Debater on “God’s Green Earth!” I will be keeping you and a full recovery for you, in my prayers. Chicago will miss you and already misses you in a daytime slot so I will continue to lobby for that along with my prayers. God bless you and your work. You have educated and enlightened my more than any teacher I’ve had and I truly wish you well.
    Janet Podczerwinski (Janet from Burr Ridge)

  309. Bryan Leniski  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:44 am

    I listen to stimulate my mind, and you facilitate a sharpness I try and maintain.

    You have a good deal of compassion for others and I’m sure many wish great strength for you and a full recovery. Please consider me one of them. May God bless you as you do us.

  310. Thomas Walker  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:52 am

    Take care my friend, wish you a safe and speedy recovery!

  312. Martha  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:06 am

    What a gracious and honest announcement, Michael. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us, even in the midst of this great personal challenge. You show your true colors once again…pure class! My family and I pray for a quick recovery and blessings beyond measure for you and yours.

  313. Mary F  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:09 am

    Michael, you will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through your course of treatment. Rest and heal fast!

  314. Darlene Duck  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:11 am

    We LOVE YOU Michael. You will get through this. We all have(and have had) the major challenges. But, thank God we live in this day of medical accomplishment ! You will be in the best hands. STAY STRONG !!

  315. Mark Dixon  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Mr. Medved,
    I have been on this journey with you since you first filled in for Rush. I remember thinking “this guy has so much stored up there, he needs his own national show”. I am a Washingtonian (remember KVI) as well and will continue supporting you in good times and bad. We are in for quite a ride in the next year, so we certainly need you back. Strength to you and your family.
    Mark

  316. Diimaa  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:32 am

    I was shocked to hear that you are fighting cancer but again knowing very well your trust in The Almighty I have no doubt that you will make full recovery soon. Get well and come back soon, Michael.. I’ll be missing your voice till then but will keep listening every day as I have done for the past 10 years.

    Best wishes !

  317. Jeffrey from Arlington, TX  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Michael, we are so blessed by your voice and your viewpoint . Hoping and praying for the best outcome possible.

  318. Ron/Bev Street  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    We will be going on the Michael Medved tour to Israel in April, and will miss you every day. We love you and will pray daily on your behalf, starting now.

  319. Vivian from El Segundo, CA  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    Michael,
    I couldn’t believe the news. I said, “He’s so fit and healthy.” Your diagnosis is a wake-up reminder of how vulnerable we humans are. You are so special and will be thought of daily with prayers for a blessed treatment course and speedy recovery. That’s for the accomplished fill-ins on your program, but no one can replace the one and only YOU! My thoughts and prayers also extend to your lovely family and especially your wife. I pray, too, that she receives the love and support during this difficult and challenging time. Blessings to you and yours always!

  320. Michael Muldawer  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    Michael, our entire family sends their prayers for a complete and rapid recovery. We haven’t spoken in a while so I’ll let you know that you’ve been my primary source of political analysis. We’re looking forward to your publications until we can hear you again on the airwaves.

  321. Debbie P.  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:29 pm

    Michael, your words took my breath away yesterday, like a close relative. Your optimism and outlook are the very tools that will give you a complete refuah shlayma. My heart and prayers are with you. Thank you for all you do!!!

  322. Kim  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    You are an intellectual and spiritual inspiration to me everyday. Can’t wait for you to get back.

    Prayers, best wishes, even the atheists want the smartest, brightest voice on radio to come back soon in 100% good health.

  323. Martha  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    Michael, I am very saddened to hear the news of your diagnosis but equally heartened at your optimism and determination. I pray for a complete recovery and that you may continue to live the life you choose in the way you choose, in this, the greatest country on God’s green earth!

  324. Steven Bailey  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    Michael, you will beat this. There is no question. Will miss your wisdom and the brilliance of your humanity. Swing by for a Texas BBQ and fellowship anytime, buddy. =D

  325. Robert & Evelyn Scott  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    Michael, Robert went thru oral cancer 7 years ago. It was a rough battle but one that he met with great courage. It never stopped him riding his bike for 10 miles daily…….in spite of the burning throat and mouth. Might I suggest you purchase a high dollar blender that will enable you to make nutricious drinks that will help you retain your strength. Best of luck to you…..we know you can win this battle…..like Robert has done!

  326. Carol Hefferon  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:09 pm

    Oh, Michael, my heart breaks for you reading this, and yet, I know you have a fortitude that can carry you through. God be with you and your family through this rough patch. I tuned in yesterday quite by accident having been laid up myself ( I hear you in the car only) and wondered why you sounded as you did. Now I am so glad I caught your last broadcast for hopefully a very short hiatus. You have grown me and my children so much over the years we have listened and I am grateful to God for you. God bless you.

  327. Rosita and Martin Zucker  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:17 pm

    We join the many others in wishing you and your strong voice a speedy recovery and return to our ears.

  328. Karin  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:25 pm

    Hi Michael,

    Just heard the news. My best wishes for a speedy recovery to you, and strength and love to your family. You are a big part of my life and I’ve grown wiser since I started listening to you. I really don’t know how to begin to thank you.

    You do tremendous good every day. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hurry back.

  329. Sally  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Can you post on The Caring Bridge”? Would love to keep up with your progress. Will keep you and your family lifted up in prayer Michael.

  330. Rob Healey  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    Prayers for a quick and complete recovery for you and for God to watch over you and your family always

    Thoughts and prayers, Michael!

  332. Toby Morris  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    Not the news I expected to hear here in Springfield, MO. Today’s show is repeat of yesterday’s show, so I’m just now hearing your cancer news. I know you will battle your cancer with grace and fortitude. I love listening to your show; I’ve learned so much the last 3 yrs or so I’ve been listening. Wish I’d known about you sooner, but I had to retire before I heard about you.

    Best wishes to you, and I pray for a quick and safe recovery. I will listen to whoever is filling in for you while you’re gone. Take as much time as you need and get well!

  333. Ronald Porch  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    I will pray daily for your recovery, Mr. Medved (tearing up as I write this).

  334. Gary silow  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:46 pm

    Dear Michael, your best quality is courage!i have enjoyed listening to you calmly and brilliantly tear apart enemies of democracy and freedom.you are so gifted intellectually that just by listening to your program I feel enriched.most importantly as a Jew I feel deeply indebtedto you for your leadership scholarship and defense of Israel and love of our country. Your courage will see you through this problem along with your proud deep faith in G-d. Can’t wait for your return.Judge Gary Silow

  335. Sharon K  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:49 pm

    I listen to you in Dallas and will greatly miss you. Your’e the best!
    Stay strong–you WILL beat this!!!!

  336. Martin  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:52 pm

    Praying for a solid recovery, Michael. You are a valued human being, not only to your family but to those of us who listen to you on the radio, to those of us who truly appreciate your educated and instructional insight, and to those of us who acknowledge your passion and love for truth. Best of luck.

  337. Ron  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    My prayers are with you, Michael, and I know what you are going through. I was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer in Feb. 2009, and in April I will be 6 years cancer free. After 5 years they consider it cured, but it is always in the back of your mind that it could come back. So you are correct, it is a very cureable cancer.
    As the pain of swallowing becomes more severe, they will probably discuss getting a feeding tube put in your stomach. A throat cancer survivor friend of mine recommended that I just tough it out without the tube, and that’s what I did. I lived on a liquid diet of Insure and other such products, and yes, the first swallow is like swallowing razor blades, but it is doable. The advantages are keeping the swallowing reflex working and not having to retrain them at the end of the 3 months or so of treatments. Additionally, you are eliminating two surgeries to install and remove the tube. And the tube will require a liquid diet anyway, so you may as well take it orally.
    As a classical singer I was really worried about the long term effects to my voice. It did take about 2 years to get back to solo quality, but the speaking voice was back in a month or two. Your vocal stamina will be the determining factor, but I think you will be back on the air very soon.
    Part of fighting cancer is having someone to call or lean on who has been there. Feel free to contact me if you need such a person. I feel it is one of the reasons God helped me survive this disease.

  338. David Johnston  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 4:01 pm

    God Bless you Mike! Get well quickly and completely! Our prayers are with you and your family.

  340. Dan Hughes  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Michael,
    I teach school and listen to you everyday on the way home. I look forward to your show as I drive hi me. I saw you speak in Cleveland a few years ago and had my picture taken with you. I feel I “know” you and that we are friends and kindred spirits. How sad I was as I heard your news yesterday but how uplifted I was at your spirit and I should not be surprised at your positive reaction as a faith filled person. Fight the good fight and know there are so many that you touch everyday that are pulling and praying for you. take good care of yourself and look forward to hearing from you live soon!
    Dan

  341. Maria Bonesteel  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Hi Michael,
    I have been you listener for several years, actually started when my son, who was in Hight School told me about you. He went off to the Army, served two turns in Iraq. Thank you God he came home in one piece. Today he is a police officer in Seattle. I;m very proud of him for serving the Military with honor and know being a excellent police officer serving our community. Has you notice I didn’t grow up in this Country. I’m from Brasil I have been living since 1982. I love this Country. I lived in a Dictadorship system for a decade I know in the first hand what lack of freedman can do to your thinking. I’m glad that I turned Republican with solid conservative principals. Listening to you and Rush Limbaum gave me a lot strenght to go on. Last Friday, on the last hour of your show when you disclosed your health conditions I became very emotional, I cried, because you became part of my family and I could help my self. Sorry to heard about your helath, but I’m sure you are be back soon. Please post to us your health improvments .
    God bless you

  342. Penelope  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I’ve been listening to you every day for several years. You have such a brilliant mind, and I especially enjoy your History Programs. I’ve told many people this is a wonderful teaching tool for schools. You make history come alive! You are such a special man, and when I heard your announcement today I wept. You are a very strong, and determined individual with a wonderful family to support you through this difficult time. I pray that you will come through this very quickly as I will miss your show until your much anticipated return. You are in my prayers, and may God bless you!

  343. Penelope  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    I listen everyday here in the Salt Lake City area. I’m really saddened by the news. Our family is no stranger to cancer. We’ve had a number survive, including my wife and a few that didn’t including our 32 year old daughter of Leukemia just last summer. I’ve listened to you since you subbed for Rush and was delighted when I found out that you had your own show and now rarely miss a show. You are like family to me. Your are by far the best on radio and you will continue to be the best when you return. Get back soon. May God bless you and your family.

  345. John K.  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 6:11 pm

  350. Jim Harvey  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 7:21 pm

    Michael, you are absolutely the best, and you will be missed.
    Last year a good friend of mine recovered fully from stage 4 throat cancer. The recovery was not fun, but he is back to 100% with less support than you will have. I am confident you will have a full recovery, as I know you are. Let’s make this a self-fulfilling prophesy!

  351. bill  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Hello Michael,
    Strong emotions stirred in me listening to your show on Friday. I am praying that the “God of all hope” heals you completely. You are a blessing to me. Your knowledge and insight have framed my thoughts, and beliefs. Come back to us soon. Yours in Christ. Bill

  352. David & Terri  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Hello Michael and family,
    We are thinking of all of you at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Michael, I am the Alaska Airlines flight attendant that met you at the LAX airport and asked if I could walk you to your gate. I am married to an Israeli and I asked you to say hello to him on my cell phone. Not only did you let me walk you to your gate, you also spoke to my husband on my phone, and then also signed and gave us a copy of your audio book, which my husband listened to and enjoyed on his way to Israel a week later!! We’re wishing you a quick and full recovery and can’t wait to hear you back on the radio!
    Sincerely,
    David & Terri

    Because this was inconvenient for me, I was really bummed when the Chicago station took you from 2pm to 8pm. Now I’m shocked and must get over missing out on MV. Starting now, the business at hand is praying for your health and family.
    I’m looking forward to hearing from you again Michael.

  354. Tricia C  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 10:27 pm

    You have my prayers as well. May God use this time to draw you even closer.

    God Bless You Michael!
    I have been a Medhead since the day you started subscription, and have listened to you every day since 2000. I am one of the people out here that have never called, but you are regular member of my daily family! Know that we are praying for you and your speedy recovery! Your voice is special to us and you are needed. You will be thought about and prayed about every day while you are gone and we will rejoice when you are back!! I love Mark Davis, so thanks for picking him as your fill in! We are in good hands while you recover!

  358. Walter  •  Jan 31, 2015 at 11:37 pm

    Michael, I pray God will let you to continue your important conversation soon. Be well soon, with a strong voice for hope in this turmoil. Thank you for all the wonderful history and encouraging political insight.

    This is a conspiracy revealed to me by the light of the full moon….Get well soon my friend; “I only want just to see you there” (Keith Green), but not anytime soon! Praying for you. WHEN you recover, I’ll reveal to you the glade where Sasquatch gathers – they are BIG fans of your show (pun intended). Love you, my friend!!

    Michael,

    My wife and I will be praying for you, Diane and your family daily during this season of treatment and healing. Thank you so much for your vital contribution to our nation’s wellbeing. I daresay as a Christian pastor that your “ministry” to our country and beyond has borne much fruit. Get well, and take your time. Don’t rush back too early… you’ve left us in quite capable hands.

    i just read your letter and although so saddened by this news I was blessed by your positive spirit. Thank you for being transparent. You voiced a few spots I. The past for a couple of radio clients. Can’t wait to have you back as you are a favorite of mine.

  370. Robert  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 2:53 am

  371. Christian Kremer  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 3:47 am

    Michael, as a still relatively young man I have quite literally grown up listening to your voice. Your reasoned mind and gentle nature had great influence on me when I, as a lonely and fatherless conservative teenager with an angry disposition living in a liberal bastion, needed it most. And they still do as I try to be a better husband and father. Like many have said here, you are like family to me and I cried out as I heard the news. The only respite is that this particular evil is highly treatable. My dear uncle just finished his treatment for the same and is doing well though the toll on the body is certainly rough. You and yours will be in my family’s prayers daily and I eagerly await your return. Upward and onward!

  372. Chris D'Antonio  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 3:58 am

    Dear Michael,
    You are the best teacher, and an even better friend. I will be praying for your quick recovery everyday at showtime. We need you! Our country needs you!

    I just adore you Michael. I speak of you as one of the greatest philosophers of our time . I think you and Praeger have done more for ecumenism than anyone or church in the last forty years. My heart aches for you but I believe that you will be delivered from this awful scourge. You will be in my heart when I pray my rosary. Love ya brother—and know that there are thousands praying for our mentor. Shalom!

  375. Jason Little  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 10:35 am

    For years you have been one of my favorites on the radio. I am thrilled to see your fighting spirit and determination. I will be praying for you and eagerly waiting your return. God bless you my friend.

  376. Michael Manion, M.D.  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 11:50 am

    Michael, so sorry to hear about your throat cancer. Keep a positive attitude (there will be a few bad days) and with the help of your loving and supportive family, I know you can beat this. I have followed you for years and love your show. Your voice of reason is so refreshing when contrasted to the absolute craziness going on in Washington. Take care and heal quickly. My prayers are with you.

  377. James and Ashley Watkins  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 11:53 am

    Our best wishes, thoughts and prayers are with you, Diane, and your entire family for rest and healing.

  378. Sam  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 1:24 pm

    Michael, we love you, and we wish you a swift recovery. Your show has always given us the wisdom We needed to make sense of this often confusing world. God be with you til we meet again.

  379. David Cole  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 1:35 pm

    Michael-

    I’ve come to depend on your calm, insightful program to keep me company on my drive home every afternoon. Your knowledge of history is almost as impressive as your compassion; both traits,along with the frequent occasions your show causes me to laugh out loud makes it required listening. My drives won’t be the same without you, my friend. Godspeed on your recovery. My family and I are praying for you and yours.

  380. John Johnson  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 3:05 pm

    Michael, We all love you and Diane and pray for your complete and speedy recovery..

  381. Douglas Joseph  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    It’s hard to imagine driving home from work without Michael Medved on the radio. I refuse to believe you will not be back. There’s nothing like surviving cancer, or I suppose other life threatening illness, to affirm to us the wonder and beauty of every day that we have been given on this Earth. I am almost 9 years post operative and it’s been 8 years since my 12 months of chemo ended. Cancer changes us but only for the better. When age brings wisdom, cancer adds perspective. My best regards.

  382. Marty Nalley  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 3:31 pm

    I will miss listening to you at the 4pm slot here on my drive home in Louisville, KY. Talk radio won’t be the same. Hurry back.

  383. Linda Shrake  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    Michael, My husband & I were riveted to our radio on Friday when you made your announcement. We are praying for you and wish you God’s blessing during your remaining treatment and recovery. Each Sunday, our clergy sends us home with the following blessing, “Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who journey the way with us. So be swift to love, and make haste to be kind.” We await your return. In God’s peace.

  384. Bill Mitchell  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    Michael,

    It’s heartening but not surprising it took me 3 days to post this message of encouragement to a man who should be known as the “rudder of our country”. You’ve meant so much to so many, (myself included) and after your recovery (and not until) we expect you’ll resume the helm.
    Prayers and best wishes.

  385. Heidi Reno  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 5:33 pm

    as I scrolled down to get to this comment section, I knew u would not need me as u have tons of followers, friends, well wishers… And I blessed to be one of them! stay strong and just know that you will always have a voice and we will always be there to listen!

  386. Ian Price  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    Michael,
    I am very sorry to hear the news. I have listened to you since 2000. I was only twenty-two, and not particularly political, but everything you said seemed to ring true and I was hooked immediately. I consider myself truly blessed to have your thoughts and perspectives part of my everyday life. And with your ambition and work ethic, I look forward to many more years of my “daily dose of debate”! You and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers

  387. Laurel Bergman  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    Dear Michael,
    Your valued thoughts will be missed until your return. Wishing you, and your beloved family the very best. The Johnson quote gives me goose bumps.
    God Bless You,
    Laurel Bergman

  388. irene e. buckman  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Dear Michael, I have every confidence that you will fully recover from this health setback and be back on the air very soon. I will be praying very hard for you because you are a voice and a presence that America needs now more than ever! God Bless.
    Irene Buckman

  389. Helene Powers  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    Michael,
    I’m so sorry to hear you are ill. Both my husband and one of our daughters are cancer survivors, and I fully expect you to recover. I attribute prayer to both of their recoveries and to overcoming so many other difficulties. My husband and I will prayer for your speedy recovery. We will miss your absence from our radio, and look forward to your return.
    Helene Powers

  390. C Koser  •  Feb 1, 2015 at 10:28 pm

    Oh, Michael. I’m so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I will be praying for your recovery. I met you at the KCBQ event in San Diego and was honored when you used my example of East Germans and the destructive nature of socialism. I will miss your voice of reason and your sharp wit. May God bless you and your family.

  399. CurtisLB  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:18 am

    Best to you on a complete and timely recovery! I have enjoyed your show for years and you are my favorite radio show host. I rarely disagree with you and gain more from your time on air than similar shows. Your family needs you more than we do, however. So, get better for them and the bonus will be that we get you back!

  400. David Dunn  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:23 am

    I love this program and am a MKedhead subscriber in China. Some tme 40 years ago I was a star American History student in high school and college. Michael is a star among stars.

    Michael has been such an inspiration to me I hope to join him in Israel some day.

    Very confident Mike will have a complete recovery. Attitude, life style and good treatment. He’s in good hands.

  401. Jeff Slater  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:56 am

    Michael, God bless and keep you! You are a good man and a great host. You’ve truely touched many lives. From one cancer survivor to another, I will be anxiously awaiting your return.
    In the interim I will be sure to follow your writings.
    You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Best of luck, get well soon and hurry back!

  402. Chuck Nagengast  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 7:42 am

    Mr. Medved:

    You make my long commute every afternoon more tolerable, even enjoyable. I’ve often sat in the driveway when I get home for a few more minutes just to listen to the end of some train of discussion.

    I used to listen to another talk show host in the same time slot in Houston but once I starting listening to you I couldn’t hardly go back, even during commercials. Your show presents a much more balanced and intelligent approach even giving the other side a chance to make their points whether we agree with them or not.

    I will be praying for you in this time of treatment.

    Hurry back soon.

    Faithful Listener

  403. Marty T  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 8:17 am

    Good luck. I went through a stage three a year ago and am thankful for family friends and wonderful medical folks who cut the damn thing out.

    Please don’t rush your treatment or healing. Do what the doctors advise. It can be fatal to push them to finish treatment if there is a hiccup and your last treatment has to be postponed.

    I have a soft spot for your ennui with reading everything about the disease. That’s a waste of your valuable time. Your doctors and nurses did that studying to save you the headache.

    Speedy recovery, friend!

  404. Terry S  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 9:41 am

    Michael — when you get thru this — and you will — you need to grow back your mustache. It’s clearly the guardian of the throat. In the meantime our prayers will be with you — we will say a Misheberach at every opportunity until you are healthy again.

  405. Marc Mazzarella  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 10:36 am

    It was little after 5 pm Friday when my wife and I got back into our car from having a fish dinner at The American Slovak Club. Don’t know if it was timing or luck to hear your heart felt trouble. Starting my 11th year listening to you, it brought tears to my eyes. The more you talked about the cancer and how your beating it did I feel better, like I always do after hearing each show. Take your time get through this and be better than before. Looking forward to hear how you are doing and the radio channel stays the same until you get back. Keeping you and your great family in our thoughts. Don’t forget to have a good laugh every day at this disease to chase it away.

    Oral cancer, especially in men, on the rise in the US. Best wishes and keep yourself centered. I just finished two months of radiation and starting to fight my way back. My best advice: do what the professionals tell you and keep yourself (your identity, your personna) above it all and in control.

  408. John Baggett  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 12:56 pm

    A beautifully written note. My Prayer was brief, right to the point. I asked for His healing hand and tender mercies on you and your family. Get well soon. God Bless you.

  409. Jim Angel  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 1:18 pm

    Michael,
    My prayers are with you as you go through the treatments. May the God of peace surround you and your family during this time and may His Spirit bring healing and wholeness to your entire being. Blessings to you and your family.

    Michael,
    On Friday, I only heard a portion of your show and missed the announcement. Was just listening to Dennis Prager and heard him share about your Cancer and leave of absence. You are one of my favorite radio hosts and I will greatly miss listening to you on my drive home each day. You and your family will be in my prayers as you finish up your treatments. Looking forward to your soon return to the air-waves!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. You can beat this! Prayers work! We love you and my husband and I have seen you several times when you have come to Dallas. We want to see you again on your next visit here! So relax, do the treatments (I am a pharmacist), so this is professional advise , and get well. My brother- in- law starts his radiation on February 9, after having two brain tumors removed and he is doing well. You will too! God Bless you for all you have giving to others, He will give back to you!!

Please do not rush to come back we want you back only when you are 1000% recovery and we know you will. My husband is a cancer survivor when he was fighting with that. I got him a poster said “Don’t Ever Give Up”
    Speedy recovery.

    Dear Michael,

    I think of you as the uncle I always wanted. I’ve looked forward to listening to you everyday for years as I always feel you are able to put a sound and reasonable light on the craziness transpiring in the world. I was hoping to get your Hebrew name to say tehillim for you but if I can’t get your name will continue to say tehillim daily with you in mind. Refuah Shleima.

    There will be a Michael Medved-shaped hole in my life until you’re back on the air regularly. Since 1996 I’ve scheduled my day so that I can listen to you on my lunch break, usually while running or walking. Each time I’ve had to miss your show (rarely), I genuinely miss it. You are like family to me now – your reasoned and faith-based approach to the issues of the day is invaluable to me. I am praying for God’s grace and mercy to be showered upon you.

  421. Steve Sloane  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    Mr. Medved,

    My prayers are with you and your family; I am personally encouraged that you’ll be back in the chair very, very soon. Until then, may you rest to the extent that you can, and perhaps focus on the silver lining that you may be able to enjoy your family a tad more than usual during this interim period. And, if you’re looking for a movie reviewer to help fill your shoes…..look my way.

    Best,

    Steve Sloane.

    Michael, I just heard about your dilemma and letting you know that I will be saying prayers for you and your family. I’ve listened to you for years and both agreed and disagreed on some issues, but I think all are in agreement that we want you to get well.

    My sister is also a survivor of throat cancer and you will be too. Check out Essiac Tea.

    May God bless you and give you strength.

    Michael,
    I grew up with your voice and you will be in my prayers until I hear it again. May G-d grant you the health and strength to broadcast until and beyond 120.

    Michael — You da Mensch! Met you at my VERY conservative law school 20 years ago. You have MUCH to be thankful for and MUCH to look forward to; I trust you will continue, with God’s blessing and imprimatur, continue to have a long (longer by many decades, my friend) tradition of being thankful for a healthy, fruitful family with many grandchildren (like Abraham multitudes!) who ALL bless the greatest nation on God’s green earth with wisdom and service and exponential blessings. Be well … to the smartest man on radio.

    Michael, I’ve been a devoted listener since that Thanksgiving broadcast when you talked about Benedict Arnold. I appreciate your intellect, storytelling, common sense and goodness. My prayers are with you and your family. Get better and God bless you, and I can’t wait to buy your book about God’s hand in America.

    I have listened to you for years. You are like a family member to us! I love to listen to your take on everything and you are a supreme history teacher!! We will be praying for God’s healing and speedy recovery so that you will be back on air soon!!

    Sending you much Love and Prayers to you and family!

    Dear Michael, Diane and family: I was very surprised to hear your announcement on Friday, and VERY happy to hear your cancer is curable, FIRST, for yours and your family’s sakes, and then, because I am totally enamored of your talk show, and I always love hearing your views on everything, and especially this greatest nation on God’s green earth! God bless you and your family as you progress through this test together, you WILL get through it! Will look for your columns and for your return.

  433. Jim L  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    Michael,

    So sad to hear the voice of reason and pragmatism will be off the air for hopefully only a brief period. My thoughts and prayers will be with you during your absence.

  434. Linda  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    I just heard about your illness and I cannot tell you how sorry I am. I am praying for your quick total recovery. I love listening to you on the radio. You are such a brilliant man, and so patient with your callers, and just so genuine and wonderful.

    I can’t pretend to know what you are going thru, but I was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer, and am recovering from a double mastectomy. When I got the diagnosis it took me by surprise. I have to tell you I am on my way to complete recovery thanks to the wonderful doctors I have been blessed with. I am praying for a similar blessing for you. I have met such wonderful, caring people along the way that it brought back my faith in humanity. I hope you have a similar road to recovery. I am so glad your family will be your rock.

    I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that there are a lot of people like I am, a nameless, faceless individual on the other end of the radio waiting for your return.

    God Bless you and your whole family.

  436. Joy Otten  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    Michael, Recently I have been teaching 4- and 5-year olds that the Lord is our Shepherd. He knows us by name. He cares for us. And sometimes He leads us through scary places, i.e. “the valley of the shadow of death”. Now, hopefully, you won’t feel like you are in the valley of the shadow of death, but cancer can be a scary experience. As I miss your presence on radio I am going to be praying that not only will the Lord heal you physically, but that He will enlighten you spiritually to the realization that the Lord of the Old Testament who is the shepherd of Psalm 23 is also the Good Shepherd of the New Testament – Jesus Christ, the Messiah to whom the Jews looked forward. For interesting reading and insight, please look up another Jewish Michael, Dr. Michael Rydelnik, a professor of Jewish studies. May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; may the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace. Sincerely, Joy

  437. Jean & Karl Mowery  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    Dear Michael,

    We admire your drive, confidence, and spirit! Please know that we will be praying for you as you go through your cancer fight and also for your family as they fight with you! ❤️

  438. Terry Patane  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    Michael,

    I will keep you in my daily prayers. You will be greatly missed during our recovery, since in my opinion, you are the most intelligent conservative talk show host on the air.
    May God bless you and your family during this season of your life.

  439. bernie berry  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Our prayers are with you for a full and speedy recovery- Thank you for all you do- may the peace of our healing Lord be with you – God bless

  440. Beverly  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    I love you and pray for you.
    Considering t he number of people who have responded on this site, maybe you should run for public office. This is no small outpouring of love and concern for you. Not a bad base of support.. Second thought, WHAT AM I, NUTS.??? Stay with us. We deserve YOU. !!!!!.

  441. Wayne  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    Michael:

    I will pray for your complete recovery. Your mission and voice needs to keep pumping out rational thinking and solutions on todays problems.
    I to was diagnosed with cancer in December. Unfortunately, my myeloma has no cure at this time so my mission will be shorter.

    Thanks for all you do.

  442. Joe Lauria  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Good Luck Michael, I look forward to hearing of your return!!!

    Michael – your show has been a source of great learning on history and politics and great entertainment. I so very much appreciate all that you do and I will miss hearing your voice daily. I wish you a refuah shlema and may you have strength as you go through the treatment and recovery process. I look forward to hearing you when you’re back on the air. Until then, be well!

  445. Linda Schlampp  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Michael, I am a 67-year-old grandmother. I live in Minnesota,I listen to your show almost every day on the way home from work. I heard about your illness today, Monday, as I was listening to your fill in host. I’m not good at words, or let’s say words to remember, I just know in my heart, and from my faith, that you will beat this. I look forward to your speedy return.

  446. Anna-Marie  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Dear Micheal I was so sorry to hear about your illness, you will be missed . I will be praying for wisdom for your Doctors as they treat you, comfort for you and your family and for God’s healing power upon your body. Looking forward to your return!

    We will pray for you in our weekly staff meeting tomorrow.
    We love to air your program each and every day.

  448. Jon  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    Michael,

    42 years ago, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease at the age of 21. I was told to say my goodbyes to friends and family. The radiation treatments took its toll at the time. But as time heals all wounds, you will persevere as I did. Here I am, father of three wonderful children and a grandfather for the first time. Life gives us challenges so that we appreciate the good things even more so.

  449. Mark  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Michael,my condolences, thoughts & prayers are with you during this tragic time ( but the first 59 & 1/2 minutes were good) maybe next year! Oh & I hope your throat feels better soon too!

  450. Mike Anderson  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I’ve been honored to be a listener of yous since my late teens when I worked as a summer lifegaurd in Southern California. I was very saddened to hear the unfortunate news of your illnes. My father-in-law had stage 4 throat cancer and beat it…5 years ago. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God speed!

  451. Joseph Grace  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    Michael, I had the pleasure to meet you in Arizona during your Right Turns tour. To my mind, you are the greatest host on the radio. Know that you and your family will be in my prayers, and I very much look forward to hearing your return to radio.

  452. John & Jan  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    We are dedicated listeners to your show. We miss you. We are praying for your complete recovery. America needs to hear more of your voice. Thanks for all you do. Come back soon!

  453. Gina Messenger  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    They say you don’t always know how much you value something or someone until it’s gone. Well, I have a heartache right now that comes from the huge hole MIchael’s absence creates in my day and in my world. Michael come back soon. Your voice and your thoughts make a BIG difference. Your radio family LOVE you.

  454. Gordy S,  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    You have wonderful people holding your place for as long as needed. My afternoons won’t be the same until you return. I can’t wait for your next book! Our hearts are with you and your family.

  455. Jeff M.  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:38 pm

    You are a tremendous blessing and asset to this country, Mr. Medved, and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to you and your program the last 8 years. I will be praying for you (as will those at my church) that God will give you a full and speedy recovery, and peace and rest to you and your family. God bless you, sir, and get well soon! Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and we look forward to the day when you return.

  456. Susan Wachtel  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    Michael,

    I’m praying that the Lord will give wisdom to you, your family and doctors in determining the best course of treatment. I pray that it will be successful in stopping the cancer in it’s tracks and that you will be restored to health and in the Lord’s timing be able to return to work. I pray that you will be aware of the Lord’s presence and of His great love and care for you. May you read the Word of God and be strengthened and encouraged.

    You are precious to so many people and a valuable voice of reason and conservative values. I pray that your voice will continue to grace to airwaves.

    Lord’s blessings…Susan

  457. Scott B  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    I stumbled into your show in the first 2 weeks and have been a daily listener ever since. To say you will be missed while you are off the mic will be an understatement. You have now even begun to influence my 9 year old. I remember you talking about Danny when he was that age.
    I have seen many in my family get diagnosed and are now fully recovered. I would expect the same for you. Please use this time to take some needed rest and work on your Halloween debate. I hate to see you lose that every year. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Give Diane a hug for us. Sometimes those close to the patient need it the most.

  458. Rick B  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    Michael, I am a cancer survivor though of a different sort and I had a colleague at work who got throat cancer and he too survived. We cancer survivors have to stick together at times like these. I pray that “the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding will flood your soul with peace and strength”.

  459. Jennie Gilchrist  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    May you embody and embolden that statement, by actually beating cancer in this life, good sir.

  463. Dori  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    I was so sad to hear of this, I listen to your show every chance I get. I will be praying for you that the Lord will give you comfort and a full recovery. Thank you for all your great info each day. Blessings!

  465. GrantV  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    It hit me like a brick when my brother told me of your illness. You are one of the good guys with values and principles near and dear to us. You show was always stimulating as a result of your being knowledgeable, logical, fair, and without a show killing ego.
    First I wish your a full recovery regardless of whether you choose to ever make it back to a microphone.
    Next I hope you recover fully and resume your radio program as if nothing ever happened.

    My brother and I are talk show junkies from the beginning of time and constantly atest to each other that you stand at the top of the stack.

    I will surely pray for you

  466. Thomas  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Get after it… Good Luck. We all fighting right along with you.

  467. Scott  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 9:30 pm

    My wife and I will be praying for you Michael. We listen to you everyday and know that with your enthusiasm and drive you’ll be back on air in no time. That being said, please be sure to get some rest because that’s the best way to get back to 100% health (I’m sure we’re echoing your wife here). Goodspeed, Michael!

  468. Maddie  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 10:15 pm

    Michael,

    Very sorry to hear about the cancer. Will be praying for you. You have the best show on radio.

  469. Callan in Sarasota, FL  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    This news is nearly as devastating for me as when I learned of my own Mother’s stage three lung cancer three years ago last December.

    Your show is the only political talk radio, liberal or conservative, that I feel is intellectually honest, emotionally genuine, and of true educational value.

    I first heard your show more than 10 years ago and have been a consistent and enthusiastic daily listener since. As I am always working during air time, so I allocate three hours out of my schedule each evening to listen, learn, laugh, commiserate, celebrate and strengthen my faith in the promise for the future of our greatest nation on God’s green earth.

    I will accept nothing less than a full recovery and a speedy return to the air waves. Mostly because my heart and mind can bear no other scenario.

  470. P B SPADE  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 10:34 pm

    PLEASE, Michael, Check out the line of RELIV products. Many have been cured, yes cured of cancer using the RELIV products. Check it out on the web, use terms like RELIV, Epigenetics, Lunasin. Feel free to contact me if you want to know more.

  471. Maria Vaughan  •  Feb 2, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    Love, Love , Love your radio show. How intelligent you are!

    I’m praying for you, faithful servant, that you be healed. Rest in Him and know that He is God. May the promises of Psalm 91 comfort you. God’s hand is on you.

  472. Sally J  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 1:27 am

    Dear Michael,
    I feel the void already. You are already so missed by your listening audience and although we will continue to listen to your replacement radio hosts no other can fill your shoes. We will continue to pray for your complete recovery and look foward to your return to the airwaves. God bless you Michael.
    We are all cheering you on.

  473. Luis P  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 2:30 am

    Michael , I think people like you and Prager are valuable assets to this country, we love so much . You make this country the best in God’s green earth. Get better soon We need your vision and clarity you provide with your daily radio show. Thank you for providing a voice for those who share your values but are not as articulate as you. I admire your patience when dealing with knuckleheads. Sorry about your Seahawks ! Love your history broadcast
    Hear you again soon.God be with you.

  474. Dr. Jay Campbell  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 3:11 am

    Michael, Just today I heard you were challenged with cancer. I have listened to you nearly every day for all the years you have been broadcasting. Back in the day when you were the “Encyclopedic mind…”.

    I have been inspired frequently to study history, because of you and your show. I often discuss the topics I have heard on your show at my dinner table. My kids hear about the political topics we hear on your show. God bless you Michael. God bless your lovely wife and your children. You are a great man and you should get well quickly, please God. We will be praying for you. Dr. Jay Campbell Lynnwood, WA.

  475. Batya C.  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 4:34 am

    Dear Michael,
    I just learned about your shocking news tonight. May G-d grant you a full and speedy recovery!
    I myself am in remission for pareteniel cancer, stage 3, which was discovered about one year ago. Since then I have had major surgery followed by 18 weeks of chemo.
    I want to recommend a wonderful organization to you: Imerman’s Angels (no religious
    affiliations) that matches up cancer patients and mentors (who are survivors). One can make
    requests for what characteristics a patient would like to have in their mentor (i.e., gender,
    age, type of cancer, religion….) They matched me up with a wonderful, kind, understanding,
    supportive woman, who has been a survivor for many years but really knows “where it’s at”
    for people relatively recently diagnosed. Their website address is: info@imermanangels.org
    The phone # is 312-274-5529. I hope this is of help to you.

  476. RHMS  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 5:20 am

    Michael, there is a huge void in my afternoons without you. I listen to ALL of the conservative pundits. In my humble opinion you are far and away the best. Get well buddy.

  477. marshall  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 7:44 am

    I know just how it is, I too have had squamous cell cancer of the tonsil area, with Chemo and radiation. This was the best method in fighting this cancer. A couple of thoughts, ask the Doctor for the pill Saligen, this stimulates the saliva glands and get a feeding tube ASAP, you don’t want to loose weight. Remember after all the treatments you will still go downhill then you will come back up.
    Things to look to in the future, with swallowing tests in the future you may find that your epiglottis does not close all the way, foods will be going into your lungs and this can become bacterial pneumonia. Another feeding tube will be needed. I was able to go 15 years before this showed up, but after googling this you will find others with less time.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers……..marshall

    • David Dunn  •  Apr 29, 2015 at 9:59 am

      You never know, who’s going to read your comments. I have saligen and that is now on my radar screen. I’ll ask the Doctor.

  479. Angela  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 9:16 am

    Michael, though we’ve never met, I listen to your radio show almost daily and feel as if you are family. I know it will be difficult for you to be away from the microphone. However, I am so grateful that you are in the greatest nation on Earth where God has provided miraculous knowledge and technology for treating cancer. I will pray for a speedy, complete & uncomplicated recovery for you. May God cover you and your family with his blessings!

  481. John Y  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 10:34 am

    Hi Michael:
    My name is John & I’m from Louisville, KY. My prayers fgo up to Our Lord God for a speedy healing for you and courage for your family. Your show has been a blessing for me in that I learn a whole lot about is really going on in our country(as well as the movie theaters 🙂 ) today as well as being given encouragement t about the future of our country despite the many difficulties we face as a nation today.

    I wanted to share one of my favorite verses with you from the Old Testament that I’m sure you know. It is from the book of the prophet Isaiah and is as follows:

    Isaiah 41:10New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    10 ‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
    Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
    Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

    Mike, this verse has always been an inspiration for me many times in my life. I hope in some way, even if small, this may minister to you and your family.

    God bless you and return back to us quicly!
    John Y. Louisville, KY

  482. David  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 10:42 am

    Michael,
    My name is David Graves; I’m a certified public accountant and work as a chief business officer of a charter school.

    I first heard you many years ago when you were filling in for Rush Limbaugh and was thrilled when you started your own show and have been listening to you ever since. I think I was in my mid 20s when I first started listening to you and now am 41. You’ve become a friend even though I haven’t met you in person and will miss listening to you this month but hope and pray that you have a very fast recovery! Thank you for all you’ve taught me and hope to listen to you for many years to come!!
    Sincerely,
    David Graves

    Michael,

    More prayers coming your way from faithful listeners in Minn. Today is the Catholic feast of St. Blaise, bishop, martyr and patron of those with throat illnesses. We are imploring St. Blaise’s intercession for your complete recovery and the strength and comfort of your loving family as you continue your treatment. We need you back on air as soon as you’re well — your work is not done!

    God bless you now and always,

    Dear Michael,

    So sorry to hear of your cancer and associated trials – Trust in Him and keep your spirits high. I love your show and really appreciate your insights, calm, and wisdom when everyone is shouting their different views (often from both sides). I’ll be looking for your articles over the next few weeks and really looking forward to your return on the show.

    God Bless and Keep you. May your doctors and nurses be well skilled and diligent, too.

  486. KP  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 11:24 am

    Michael,
    Today (Feb. 3rd) is the feast day of St. Blaise, and he is the patron of healthy throats. There is a tradition of Catholic priests blessing peoples’ throats in a special way on this day, and I encourage you to find a church/priest to bless your throat (which you can request even though you aren’t Catholic). I will ask St. Blaise for prayers for quick healing for you. God bless!
    “Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from ailments of the throat and from every other evil. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” (Blessing of St. Blaise).

    Michael,
    You are a shining light and inspiration to all. Gd needs you here to continue to spread His message love and appreciation in the unique way that only you do, and so I’m sure you’ll make a full recovery and in the process be a contined source of inspiration to us all–even without saying a word. A refuna shleyma, may Gd grant you a complete healing soon. May this be a tikun for your sweet soul, Rabbi Mark Kunis

  488. Brian P.  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 11:33 am

    I can’t say I’ve ever left a personal message for a celebrity, as much as you probably hate to think you are one. But, I was compelled to write you when I read the news about your cancer this morning. You’re hands-down my favorite radio talk show host. You don’t scream, interrupt or use childish euphemisms when talking to or about people with opposing views. I’ve always found you respectful of the person, even while indignant about their point of view. And, on the lighter side, I’ve always enjoyed your movie reviews. Get well soon, Michael. I’m praying for you right this minute.

  489. oldtxgal  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 12:23 pm

    May God hold you in His mighty hand… blessing you and your family comfort, strength, courage, and relentless optimism, throughout your treatment and recovery. I look forward to your return.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for a full recovery. You’ve touched so many lives with your show, it’s no doubt there is an army of followers praying for your recovery. Godspeed!

    Michael;

    I will pass on some sage advice an elderly pastor gave us several years ago while my father was fighting a form of cancer. “If you wake in the morning and God has given you one more day on this earth. Your prayer should be Father what have you left me here to do. Your prayer should be that God should use you to accomplish the mission he has left you here to do. For if we wake there is a mission God has left us here to fulfill.” I pray that God will make this mission clear to you. If only to be an example to others in the same state of a courageous and gracious servant.

    Dear Michael,

    I listen to your show every day on my drive home from work. Last Friday, I missed the last segment so was shocked when I heard the news on yesterday’s show. You are the best talk show host in this Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth and my prayers are with you and your family. One of my favorite verses that has helped me get through some tough times is from Deuteronomy where His word tells us to be strong and not afraid: for our God will never leave us nor forsake us.

    Praying for your full recovery,
    David G. – Decatur, GA

    Michael,
    I know your faith will help you through this, and you will come back stronger than ever. That will be my prayer for you. Best wishes for a full recovery, and I hope the time off allows you to really enjoy writing your book, which sounds like a wonderful read. I’m looking forward to it!

    Blessings,

    We were saddened to learn of your illness but heartened to hear your words. You have a fighting spirit which will see you and your family through this temporary setback.

    Michael,
    You are my go to guy! I’ll miss hearing you every day on my iphone, computer, and radio. Follow the doctor’s orders, let your throat completely heal, and return as soon as you can. I went through chemo, radiation, and surgery 10 years ago at a different wonderful cancer institute. It’s all doable. Thank you for having Mark Davis on. Thoughts and prayers will be going your way!

  500. ram  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    Get Well soon Mr. Medved.

    Michael,
    A friend got me “The Ten Big Lies About America” for Christmas, so I plan to fill up some spare time in February reading & studying until you get back on the air. Mark Davis is a great temporary replacement, with David Boze & Arthur Brooks (!), but you make me laugh the most. You are a great encouragement to me, and good company. God bless you & your family in your treatment & recovery.
    I’m amazed at the haters posting on even this personal, gracious self-disclosure of yours. Taylor Swift is right about those people, haha.
    Mark

  502. Karen Johnson Louisville KY  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Michael, I listen to your show every day and am always awed at how hospitable you are to all callers. Your knowledge is unsurpassed. Please know of my prayers for you and your family as you recover from this disease. I know you are a great man of faith so remember, GOD is in the details! Hear from you soon my friend.

  503. Vince Cesare  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    Light speed on your recovery, Michael.

    I was sorry to hear about your battle with throat cancer Michael. My wife and I will pray for a quick and full recovery. God Bless you and your family as you “go through the fire.”

  506. Sunny D  •  Feb 3, 2015 at 11:09 pm

    Michael,
    I turned on WNTP 990 AM Phila this morning just as your friend and colleague, Mike Gallaher, was giving the listeners a report on your diagnosis and treatment. It struck at my heart. Though we’ve not met, you’ve been like a friend and my traveling companion for many years as I’ve listened to you on my drive home from work every day. Your show is THE BEST (don’t tell Mike). I will be counting the days until your return. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Remember to be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Continue to trust Him. He has everything under control. Shalom.

    Today (Feb 3rd) is the feast of St. Blaise, the saint of healing diseases/conditions of the Throat. As a long time fan I wanted to do something for you. I know prayer works so today I offered my Mass along with the traditional annual blessing of throats for you as a special prayer for your cure and healing. You are a one of a kind, Michael. We need you back strong and healthy. God Bless You and your family..

  508. Judith Divoky  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 1:05 am

    We’re praying for you at Lakewood Baptist Church in Ohio. May God’s healing touch be upon you.

    We are praying for your speedy recovery and return. Have always enjoyed your show – especially Disagreement Day! Hurry back and God Bless!

  514. Edie Everette  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    I recently realized that I consider Michael my Jewish father (as my non-Jewish father HA! has been gone for years). I actually feel secure and ‘loved’ when listening. Michael is extremely generous, too. After sending my political cartoons to him for a while, he suggested I come to the studio and sit in on a broadcast. It was a highlight of my life! I was so nervous! He was super kind even when I showed up with blue hair (had to try it once in my life). I am grateful to live in the era of Medved! He is practical, brilliant, funny and a RARE voice of reason (especially in Seattle, where a conservative-ish artist feels lonely as heck!). Hear ya soon, Michael!

  515. Linda  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    I take solace in knowing that there are actually many hard working, God fearing (respect/honor), common sense, America loving people out there in this “greatest nation on God’s green earth”, and I thank you for the encouragement and enlightenment you bring via your radio show. Your topic knowledge and patience with callers amazes me. May God bless you and meet all your needs through His wisdom and mercy.

  516. George Stock  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:19 pm

    Best wishes for a quick recuperation, Michael. Your voice, in all ways, is needed in America.

  517. Jerry Norman  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    Michael,
    I am not much of an emotional guy but last night after viewing American Sniper, it brought a tear to my eye. It happened again today when I learned of your medical condition. You have helped shape my thinking on issues our county faces and on the best ways to deal with those issues. I have little doubt you get those who disagree with you rethinking their position. You are a patriot, you are the best at what you do. I pray for a speedy and full recovery and look forward to your return to the airwaves.

  518. Robin Weiss Tarne  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:26 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I was so hurt by your disclosure of your situation, I started to cry with the sudden realization of your dilemma. You had become a part of my life as have a few others, on the talk radio circuit. For a short minute I contemplated not being able to hear your voice, and the dimension of the content that you communicate everyday, in my home, in Los Angeles.
    Then I realized that I will continue to be the recipient of your intellect and wisdom when you have completely recovered. We are not always of the same opinion, but my friend, from Washington, that does not know me, will return to my home and continue to keep me company with his comforting presence.
    You must support your recovery with juicing and other nutrients and life supporting protocols that will aid your body in the healing process. The information is available. It has to be relatively mainstream by now. I hope you don’t think me out of line by suggesting this.
    I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
    Sincerely,
    Robin Weiss Tarne

  519. Denise  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Michael,

    When I found out about the cancer, I immediately began praying for your full recovery and for your family. Get well soon. Listen to your Doctor. You’ll be back soon enough. Blessings.

  520. Mozzie  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    We’re both newly recovering from the same general disease, although in different systems.

    You will recover. You must because you are the only radio host who is not only crystal clear on the concepts, including some complex statistical ones, but you have an amazing ability to communicate them.

  521. Kathleen Dunbar  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Michael,
    In this world of unreasonableness…you are always the voice of reason. You simply must get well. I could not go through and election cycle without you. I can hardly go through a week without you.

    We share the same birthday (October 3) but you are two years older and much, much wiser.

    I feel like you are my friend…and I am so sad for what my friend faces. May God bless you, your family and your radio family with your quick recovery. You are loved by so many.

  522. Joy  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 6:34 pm

  526. Tina  •  Feb 4, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I missed your show last Friday and eagerly tuned in Monday to hear what you had to say about the Seahawks’ loss. Just as I tuned in, Mark Davis was rereading your Personal Note to Your Radio Family. Before he finished, I just knew what your letter was going to say – that you were being treated for throat cancer. My husband was diagnosed with throat cancer in mid-December as well, and he is going through what I am sure is very nearly the same treatment regimen as you at the moment. So, please know that you and your family are not going through this alone – many others are going through it with you, both figuratively and literally. And how uplifting it is to see the testimonials on this site of those who have conquered cancer! We enjoy your show very much here in Cleveland, and we pray God’s blessings for your full recovery.

  527. Andres  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 4:06 am

    I listen to you every day, on the way to work and while driving at work. You are the smartest Radio Show Host I have ever heard. Don’t know how you do it. God has blessed you with this gift, and you share it with everyone 5 days a week. I may not agree with you, and sometimes I think you are soooo wrong, but leaving all this aside, I pray to our God that this obstacle will be overcome, and that you will be back on radio, to do what you love so much. May comfort be upon your family, and to you a speedy recovery.

  528. Richard Cherry  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 8:25 am

    Michael, I am praying for healing, comfort, and peace for you and your family. I had a very similar diagnosis and treatment regimen two years ago, so I have a pretty good sense of what you are going through. God, excellent physicians, and the loving care of my wife and family brought me through it. I know you too are in excellent hands. I am looking forward to hearing about your cure and recovery from treatment. Best wishes.

  529. Mike P  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 10:09 am

    I just know you’ll get better. You wouldn’t make me listen to Prager all the time, would you?

  530. Denny Martin  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 11:56 am

    God Bless you Michael,
    You are a beloved man. Our prayers and love go out daily for you.

  531. JD  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    I think the key is early detection and aggressive treatment. My neighbor went there where I think you’re going, but she had smoked since age 13, and given her age, finally succumbed, but had other exacerbating factors like schizophrenia and general living conditions.

    “in eighteen years of radio, I’d accumulated nearly a year of unused vacation and sick days.”

    me too, but that’s awesome because it’s ‘love’ for the job, in my case it’s “need the money”

  532. Judy M  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    You & your family remain in my daily prayers. God bless you.

    Michael, God Bless You and your family as all of you go through the next few months. Thank you for reminding us each day that we live in the the greatest nation on God’s green earth! We will anxiously await your full recovery and return to what you love doing on the radio.

  535. Tony McQuilkin  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    You are in my prayers. For the past month, I have only been able to listen on Fridays, because of a class I have been teaching in the afternoons. But that changes as of today, and I hope to listen to the show more often.

  536. Patty Purcell  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    Praying for you, Michael! God bless you during this time of treatment, and God give you healing and grace to keep you content while you wait to be back on air! We miss you, and hope to hear how you are doing in the next month. I so enjoyed meeting you and your sweet father in Rancho Cucamonga a few years ago. He was the sweetest man! I asked him to sign his book for my father in law (a scientist, too) and he asked me questions, then signed it by writing how sweet his daughter-in-law (me!) was to meet! What a special, thoughtful thing to say! Blessings to you and your family!

  537. Steve Wilburn  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 4:54 pm

    I’m praying for your quick and full recovery, Michael.

    I’m a 30 year old Pastor who has been listening to you since I was 15. I can’t tell you how much your show has meant to me over the last decade and a half, especially when I was in college and trying to maintain a conservative worldview. You are still the smartest host on radio and I consider it a privilege to turn on your show every day.

    Get well soon, and I look forward to listening to you for many more years to come!

  538. Jill Brennan  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Get well soon Michael — I’m sure you can’t wait to get back on the radio — just make sure you do what the doctors suggest and don’t come back until they say you’re ready — It will be the best for you and your family. That’s the most important thing.

  540. Lawrence S. Miller  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 6:04 pm

  541. Angela Roloff  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I already miss your radio show so much! I want you to know we are praying for your recovery and that you will be back on the air very soon. By the way I am a 8 year cancer survivor myself. Take good care of yourself and listen to your wife! She sounds like a very smart lady!

  542. Rick  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 7:48 pm

    Michael,

    I was moved to tears to read your message realizing just what an important part of my life you have become.

    My best wishes and prayers that our faith in a loving and just God will restore you to full health and bring you back to the airwaves soon. I and a huge host of others miss you.

    A long time listener in Seattle.

  543. Melody Vincent  •  Feb 5, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    Like so many, I was shocked and saddened to hear about your news on Monday’s broadcast (missed you on Friday). I have been reading through all these comments, and they have to be about the best medicine for you. What wonderful, and true, sentiments. You are the best radio talk show host – but more importantly, you are obviously a very loving husband, a fabulous father, an incredibly intelligent and principled individual, and just an exemplary human being – and yet with all of this, you are also humble. I don’t know of anyone who has more prayers being offered up for him, and you will also be in my daily prayers also – so from our lips to God’s ears for your complete and speedy recovery. God’s blessings on you and your family.

  544. Jimmy Joe  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 1:30 am

    Michael,
    I have been a fan of yours ever since I bought my internet radio 4 years ago specifically to listen to your broadcasts (I live in England). You can’t imagine how thrilled I was to receive an invitation to appear on your show last May after my book Hunting The President was released!

    I was saddened and shocked, along with thousands of your fans, to hear about your health problems. I’m sure your family is rallying behind you to fight this terrible disease. God be with you in your battle.

  557. Edward Lang  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 11:23 am

    Michael,

    Thanks to you, I have devoted my life to seeking more and more information and truths. You’ve inspired me to change from semi-liberal (because I thought it was the “right thing” to be), to a good-hearted conservative like you who is able to look behind the often false vale of liberal kindness to discover the real truths. I’ve also become a more observant Jew after listening to you for all these years, despite my very strong commitment and belief in the scientific principles. I HATED Hebrew school; twice a week for all of my childhood. I was even a rebel (but never a bully) and got caught smoking in-between classes with other ‘cool’ friends (it was the first and last time I ever smoked). I also got in trouble for, unbeknown to them, tying up several of my friend’s Tefillin and tallit together into horrible knots out of boredom in Haftorah Trup class. This was in in Cherry Hill, NJ where we were living at the time, going to Beth El, a humongous Conservative Schul , seated with 30 other ungrateful, snot nose, acne-covered spoiled kids in my class (I’m still waiting for lightening to strike and I AM remorseful now).

    I’m paraphrasing what you once said about yourself on air with regards to religion; ‘if I’m going to be Jewish, I might as well go all the way’. So for this wisdom and every other meaningful insight of yours, I am grateful to you. Hey! Wait a second; I’m talking like its all over!! Don’t worry; you’ll get better; I promise, both as a doctor and an advanced practice nurse (I’m both) with head and neck oncology experience. And please heed my father’s advice, (who is brilliant, just like yours was and fluent in Yiddush); [with a strong Bronx accent] “Don’t be a schmegeggie. Listen to the doctors, do what they tell you, and get your tuchus back on the air as soon as they let you”. Good Shabbos and get well soon.
    With love and deep gratitude, Ed Lang

  558. Bob & Debbie Tappert  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    My wife and I have listened to you for years, you have provided depth and truth to understanding our government and life in these United States. Thank you for your service. We will be praying for the cure you need in this trial of your life.

  559. Sheldon Dan  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    Michael,

    I have listened to your show every so often, but unfortunately we don’t get you in the Memphis area. I have followed your career and have been inspired by your story. The articles you have written are wonderful and I read them whenever I can. I wish you a refuah sheleimah as many of the writers have, and I hope you return to the airwaves soon.

  563. Rose  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    Michael;
    A totally excellent ear, nose and throat doctor/surgeon is Dr. Preston Rice over in Silverdale, WA – across the Puget Sound on the Kitsap Peninsula. A co-worker and I both had salivary gland cancer, a disease that strikes about 4 people a year in the USA. Unlike poor Roger Ebert who was left with his mouth hanging open, unable to eat or drink or talk and with facial paralysis, Dr Price came through for both of us and the only sign that I ever had salivary gland cancer is an unnoticable scar on my neck. My co-worker’s salivary gland cancer tumor was located deeper than mine so radiation clinics turned him down for the recommended radiation therapy but the U of WA accepted him and did the radiation therapy on him. The results of Dr. Rice’s surgery on my co-worker are also excellent with no noticable scars and with him being fully able to eat, drink, talk and with no facial paralysis.

    This was in 2005. I and my colleague are now two of the extremely rare people who become survivors of salivary gland cancer as it kills over 99% of the people who get it.

    I highly recommend Dr. Preston Rice for any surgery that you might need on your neck or throat associated with the throat cancer. I know that you live in the Puget Sound.

    Best wishes!

  569. Marie Beatty  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    Michael, I was listening to you as I crossed the desert from LA to Las Vegas when you announced you had cancer. I spent that last hour crying and praying. You have been a constant companion as I deliver the mail these last 15 plus years. I had the privelege of meeting you at the Nixon Library, and you autographed your book for me. Rest assured you will have many people praying for you. I look forward to the day when I get to hear your voice again live. Love you!

  570. Todd  •  Feb 6, 2015 at 8:57 pm

  571. Patricia Reinhart and Chad Reinhart  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 2:31 am

    Dear Michael…Over the years, my son, Chad, and I have enjoyed seeing you whenever you have visited Minneapolis…from boat rides to State Fair visits, and dinners. We are so sorry that you have to go through this trial but we want you to know that you are in our prayers and we include your family and doctors as well. During all my years of nursing and now teaching my beloved profession, I understand the love you have for your profession ..and I know this will keep you strong and focused to get through this…I was going to tell you that you need to come to Minneapolis so my nursing students and I can care for you but then I saw that your daughter-in-law will be a nurse soon..and that is wonderful…please congratulate her for me. Hold on to your family tightly and they will give you strength..Your radio family loves you…when you get tired, close your eyes, relax and feel all of the love, prayers and good wishes that are coming to your kind and gentle spirit…May God hold you gently in His arms..we look forward to seeing you soon in Minneapolis!

  572. MJ in Columbus  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 11:23 am

    You’ll be in our thoughts and prayers, Michael. We will miss you terribly while you’re gone but look forward to your return to the radio and to good health. God Bless you!

  573. Bruce McKechnie  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    I pray for you my friend – for smart doctors, a receptive body to medical ministrations, and God’s healing touch. As much as you’ve accomplished already in your life, I don’t believe He’s finished with you yet. As your Christian fan I’ve always considered you my second favorite Jew. We look forward to your return.

  574. James Landrum  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    Michael,
    We are praying for your complete and rapid recovery. For selfish reasons….we need you for your reports, analysis, wisdom and great contributions to this greatest nation on God’s green earth. Godspeed and persevere dear friend.

  577. Kim  •  Feb 7, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    This is my second time leaving a note. Just wanted to tell you that, in addition to praying for you and Diane, I am currently (re)reading your biography, Right Turns, and enjoying every page. Wishing you Godspeed in your recovery!

  578. Dov  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 3:13 pm

    Michael,
    Wishing you a refu’ah shleimah u-mehirah [a complete and speedy recovery].
    What is your Hebrew name, please, if you don’t mind sharing it, so that we may make a proper mi she-berakh for you?
    Please be well and get back on the air soon!
    Kol tuv (all the best),
    Your fan,

  579. Mary  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 3:57 pm

    Michael :
    I was really in shock when I heard about your cancer diagnosis, and although I listen to all 3 hours of your program every day, I happened to be at a movie when you made your announcement Friday week. I hope you are reading all the kind words that your fans have written and I couldn’t agree with them more! If you happen to listen last week to your stand-in, Mark Davies, you couldn’t have picked a more appropriate broadcaster. He and you are both just “great”. Please get well soon. Mary, Tacoma

  580. Cheryl  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    Michael, I have been listening to your broadcast for several years and it is the highlight of many of my afternoons. Your show keeps me informed and optimistic about the “Greatest Nation on God’s Green Earth.” I am praying for you and your family.

  581. Tzvi  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    May Hashem bless you with a Refuah Sheleimah. May Moshiach come speedily-in your Zechus

  582. Alice Pickett  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 9:38 pm

    I spent a wonderful evening last year listening to you, my very favorite talk show host, at the
    B’nai Torah in Atlanta. It was a fascinating lecture about the interweaving of Jewish issues and events from Colonial times forward and how they affected American History with a lasting mark and direction. I know this has not ended. I may have been the only gentile girl in the audience, but I did not care as I was so comfortable. I grew up in a post WW ll neighborhood that included Jewish, German, French. Unusual some would think for Atlanta, but that was my street. I try to listen to you everyday and I used to mark the time after work until I could get into my car and turn on 920 Salem Network: a huge break from my day of working in the extremely liberal climate of the “city of Atlanta”. I learned today at church, North Avenue Presbyterian, that one of my good friends and an elder is also an avid listener, so there is some hope for our city! North Ave. is a very influential and key in the Human Trafficking Initiative. I worry about our country, but not when I listen to you.
    I was brought to tears upon hearing that you are having to fight this disease, however I know you can and will be back to prime. Please rest and heal. You have many prayers going up from Atlanta.

  583. Lisa Menzies Corletto  •  Feb 8, 2015 at 11:53 pm

    Dear Mike, I hope that you recover quickly and completely. Are you planning to attend the 50th. It would be very nice to see you again. In the mean time I wish for you, strength and peace. Sincerely, Lisa M.

  584. Rick Collins  •  Feb 9, 2015 at 12:31 pm

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for not only providing wonderful commentary and insights over the years, but also for being a man of integrity and outstanding character.

  585. Barbara Cook  •  Feb 9, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    Do everything the doctors tell you, and do so faithfully. Eating will become a serious issue so drink as many diet supplement shakes as you can. Apply the skin lotion religiously. Use all the oral rinses and washes you can stand. Don’t miss treatments. Pay close attention to de3ntal matters. From a recent survivor and listener,

    Barbara Cook

  586. Stephanie Roberts  •  Feb 9, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    Dear Michael,

    I’ll never forget the first time I heard you speak. You were giving a televised lecture from a college campus somewhere in California almost ten years ago. The following day, after arriving at work, I asked one of my co-workers if he had ever heard of you. That co-worker was Jay Johnson and he certainly knew who you were! I’ve been listening to you ever since and deeply appreciate your reasonable approach to political commentary. Your values are to be greatly admired, as well. I believe in the power of prayer and will add you to the list of those I pray for. God bless you, Michael and I look forward to hearing you are well again and will be returning to your outstandingl radio show. Regards to your lovely wife, as well. I’m sure she is a great comfort to you at this time.

    Stephanie Roberts

    Dear Michael,
    Without a doubt, you are the greatest and most thoughtful radio host and political mind on God’s green earth. I’m sure I’m speaking for all of your loyal radio family when I say to focus like a laser beam on doing everything necessary to make a full recovery. We miss our daily brain stimulation!
    God bless you,

  592. Helen  •  Feb 10, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    I’m speechless! Will be praying for you to my Lord, Jesus. He has been very good to me and I am sure he hears my prayers of gratitude and my special petitions for family and friends ( of which you are surely one).

    Tho I am unable to listen to you every day, I am always amazed at your vast knowledge of history and politics (and movies, too, of course! I’m still a cine-fan and enjoy your critiques.)

    Bless you,
    Love you,
    Be well again and return soon.

  593. Steve J.  •  Feb 10, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Hi Michael –
    I’ve been listening to your show for many years during my lunch hour and I disagree with you most of the time – but nevertheless I always find your show entertaining and thought provoking.
    Came back from vacation and missed you on the radio, was shocked to hear this news. Wish you the best of luck for a speedy recovery.

  594. Elias  •  Feb 10, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    Michael,

    You are in my thoughts and prayers! Miss you, your show is nothing without you!

  595. Joy and Paul  •  Feb 10, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    Michael,
    We are deeply troubled that you are going through such a difficult time, but as always, encouragement and inspiration come through your powerful words. We will pray for your full recovery and that God will be near to you and your family. Thank you for all you do for our nation and for each one of us.
    Praying for you,
    Paul and Joy Vander Vliet,

  596. Margaret McCarthy  •  Feb 11, 2015 at 10:58 am

  597. Ed  •  Feb 11, 2015 at 1:39 pm

    Godspeed, Michael. Prayers for a full and speedy recovery.

  598. Ron & Susan  •  Feb 11, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    We are praying for you. We met in Rancho Cucamonga a few years ago, shortly after you wrote 10 Big Lies About America. We gave you Tom’s toothpaste for you to take on the plane. But you were not sure if it would be allowed.

  599. Tonya Ross  •  Feb 11, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Hello Michael,
    I just read your letter to listeners. Thank you for sharing your story and journey. Prayers for you and your family asking the God of the universe to give you healing and peace during this time and always.
    Grateful for your dedication.

  602. Gail Richards  •  Feb 13, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    dear Michael, I watched you review films for years, didnt know you would change my way of thinking.
    A liberal Dem until my 40s, your book Right Turn and listening to you, made me see the light,so much peeled from my wyes and I knew I had been brainwashed by media,lib hometown,friends.
    thank you, you helped make me a better person.
    you will be fine.

  603. Gene Bolin  •  Feb 14, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    Michael: I am a dyed in the wool liberal and have been all of my life—but among all conservative commentators, I appreciate you most for your civility and dignity. You avoid personal attacks and focus on the actual issues. You are therefore indispensable to the political dialogue. I wish you a very speedy recovery.

  604. Tommy Arvizu  •  Feb 14, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    Michael, I was saddened to hear about your health situation. Above all else, I pray for a quick and full recovery. I listen to your show every day on my way to work and look forward to hearing your comments and opinions on today’s news and events. Being from the DFW area, I am well aware of Mark Davis and his more-than-worthy ability to fill your shoes while your gone. I am an avid listener to his show and I know he will do a great job. Get well my freind.

  605. Kathy Heatwole  •  Feb 15, 2015 at 9:56 pm

    I am so saddened by your news but hope and pray for a full recovery. I listen to your program every day and cannot imagine not having you on the air! I am a practicing oncology nurse in the Atlanta area and have been a nurse almost 40 years. I have seen the amazing progress we have made with cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, I know this is not an easy diagnosis and the treatment is certainly not a walk in the park. Hang in there, it will be worth it in the end! I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice on the air soon!

  606. Elaine gibson  •  Feb 16, 2015 at 5:41 pm

    Michael,
    I know you will return…soon. You are a very valuable resource to this country…..a true gentleman, who always welcomes honest debate on all topics. I am starving for fact-based, honest debate, and am very impatient to have you back on air(selfishly).
    I wish you a speedy and complete recovery! Listen to your medical staff, so you don’t have any set backs….we love you, and NEED your wisdom back on air.

  607. Sue Ainilian  •  Feb 16, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    Prayers for you, Diane and the family! Get back to us as soon as you are able…miss you already!

    I have prayed for you Michael and will continue to do that! You are a needed voice in the USA and in the world (I listen to you from Sweden)!
    Please take the time you need to recover! Don’t hurry back… take the time you need to get strong again! … and we are looking forward to your return!
    Sincerely,
    John Mulak

    Michael you are the best. I feel as close to you as my Catholic friends and admire you and your friend Dennis for your faith filled commentaries. Couldn’t figure out where you were until today after checking the ultimate source. As all the other fans my prayers are there for you and your family for a complete recovery for your body and soul.
    All for “the greatest country on “God’s Green Earth”.

  617. Janet L.  •  Feb 19, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    Michael,
    Want you to know that every time I turn on your show and hear someone else at the microphone, I am reminded to pray for you and your family as you walk through these difficult days. I am reminded to pray for you yet again as I hear your voice doing an ad, as I just did as in for ‘Blinds.com’. I pray in the precious name of Jesus that your healing will be speedy and complete and that Our Everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth who does not faint or grow weary and whose understanding is unsearchable will enable you to mount up on wings like eagles, to run and not be weary, to walk and not faint as you wait on Him during these days which I’m sure are filled with many questions and much weariness. May He bless you with peace today and strength for the many tomorrows ahead.

    • Amy Williams  •  Feb 19, 2015 at 5:30 pm

      Dear Michael,

      I am so grateful for your intelligent conservative voice. Our country needs you more than ever, and I am praying for your full and quick recovery. Thank you for many years of superior political and social analysis, and here’s to many, many more!

  618. Linda C.  •  Feb 19, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    Dear Michael,

    My husband battled the same lump-in-the-neck beast (stage 4) 9 years ago and is alive and kicking. We know how brutal this treatment can be (for both you and Diane) but we also know it is worth it. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Hang tough, email if you need a sympathetic ear.

    I’ll call out your name at morning minyan. I wish you well. After 40 years of medical practice, I have seen this disease of yours successfully controled/cured in each patient. You will follow their examples.

  620. Aaron Hodgins  •  Feb 20, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    Michael, you are the brightest star in the talk radio firmament, and we are missing you terribly! No other host has the needed depth and breadth of knowledge to present topics and facts with CONTEXT. Yes, you are also entertaining; but it is obvious you are a passionate conservative and true patriot. Please fight the good fight – our country needs you. Our prayers are with you and your family.

  621. Tomasz  •  Feb 20, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    I came to usa 12 years . I start working since day one and eventually I end up as truck driver. At this time my English was really bad. My friend advice me to start listening talk radio while I drive. The first show that I turn on was Michael Medved Show. In two years I spoke English fluently. So my point is,You and others talk show hosts teach me this beautiful language. Other than that I’m aware of politics, history, and all what happening in this country. And that’s why I want to thank You so much for everything You gave me and wish You best in this hard time
    P.S I’m not a victim

  622. Lorri  •  Feb 20, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    I started listening to your show when my oldest son was a mere preschooler. Now, he’s a Sophomore in high school! Thank you for your intelligent, witty and feisty contribution to our society. God bless you as you continue treatment and as you heal.

    Anxiously awaiting your return to the airwaves!

  630. Jill  •  Feb 23, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    May God bless you and heal you Michael. Your stand-in hosts are doing great but we miss you so much. Your work is important and I learn so much from you. I’m missing your comments today, the day after the Oscar ceremony…always looked forward to that. Can’t wait for you to be back at the mic with a strong voice. Blessings and love to you and your beautiful family.

    OCT I had a stroke. Everyday I listen to you while resting from rehab. I thought there is a fellow Jew who has the perfect life. But as Dennis Prager says only 1 pct has that

    What you do have is love. Love of family friends and many listeners who truly care.

    You will get well. You will be better for having this adversity.

  634. julie  •  Feb 23, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    May you have a complete and speedy recovery. I miss hearing you on 970, and can’t wait until you are back on the air!

  635. Billy Ford  •  Feb 24, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    Michael, I have often thought about how the day will come when you’ll no longer be on the air, and what a sad day that will be for this greatest nation on God’s green earth. I trust that that day is still very far off, but your current absence from the airwaves has reminded me again of what a blessing you are, not to be taken for granted. Others on the radio (including your fill ins) are good, but I appreciate you the most. I’ll be praying for you as you wrap up your treatments.

    “You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday…When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” – Psalm 91

    I hope to meet you someday. Looking forward to your return,

Hopefully we will hear you on Monday. God Bless,

    I’m such a huge fan. Praying for your rapid recovery and decades of remission. I miss hearing your voice on the radio. Please come back as soon and safely as possible. Until you come back your show should start with Mark Davis saying “And another crappy drive home in this the greatest nation on God’s green earth”.

    Michael,
    I wish you a speedy recovery. Next month I celebrate 5yrs throat cancer free. I understand your desire to get back to work as quickly as possible, but your whole body has gone through a lot and will take longer than you think to recover. This isn’t the flue or a winter cold, the chemo and radiation have seriously damaged your body and it takes a lot longer then you expect it will to recover. As much as we all want you back on the air, we want you back healthy, so take the time you need. Best of luck!

  645. Al Miller  •  Feb 26, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    I finally got around to looking up on the Internet why you are off the air for the month of Feb. (I heard a guest host say that much, but never heard an explanation why). You “regulars” on the Salem radio network really are the cream of the crop, and the substitues just don’t hold my interest the way you do. Really miss you during my afternoon business driving. I’m also a cancer survivor (Prostate) and praying for your full recovery.

  646. Dan Rock  •  Feb 27, 2015 at 2:33 am

    At first I thought you were just on vacation… i never caught mention of anything cancer related. Then as time went by, I started to get the fear something was very wrong. I’ve heard you broadcast from your vacation spots, and this is the longest i’ve gone without hearing your amazing recollection of facts and history, and respectable debates of those on the wrong side of common sense.
    So I finally had to come here to find out what’s going on. Shocked and sad I am. But I hope so much for a full speedy recovery for you. Just to echo what others have said… the fill ins have the right idea, but nobody… nobody handles the debates like you, nor has the historic insight to make the dialogue as compelling to listen to.
    To be more blunt… radio is a little less smart without you on it. Miss ya dood! (yes, I’m a hippie tree hugger who happens to agree with about 99% of what you have to say)
    Get well soon!

  647. Steve Munro  •  Feb 27, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    I have followed you for many years, starting when you were doing movie reviews on CNN. I still consider you the most reliable movie reviewer out there. Most recently, I have been a frequent listener of your conservative radio show on Salem Radio network here in Sacramento. You are, in many ways, the most thoughtful and open-minded of the prominent conservative thinkers.

    All of this is a prologue to my core message to you. I will be supportive of you in your effort to overcome this health challenge you are facing. You are particularly missed at this moment when the nation is threatened by the President’s attempt to circumvent the Constitution with his illegal executive orders, when Israel is challenged by the failure of the administration to put out the welcome mat for Benjamin Netanyahu in his upcoming visit to our country, and when the entire world is threatened by the unspeakable acts of ISIS. Your voice is sorely missed.

    For all these reasons and more, we need you back. God Speed.

  648. Neal Simpfenderfer  •  Feb 27, 2015 at 10:45 pm

    Met you years ago during your research for “The Class of ’65”.I have been listening to your radio show for many years.Take care and look forward to your voice back on the radio.

  649. Suzanne Davidson  •  Mar 1, 2015 at 1:13 am

    Another well wisher for Michael, my Jewish and American brother.
    May Hashem send you a speedy yeshuah and Refuah.
    I am praying for you each day. Do what you need to do to heal yourself and don’t fight resting!

    Kol Tov,
    Suzanne

    Big fan..
    it was recently discovered that chewing and leaving curcumin in your mouth will bring your saliva back to normal.. the curcumin has to be of a pharmaceutical grade, I take C3..The only pharmaceutical curcumin I have been able to find is from “ageless cures” 866-245-8575. I usually call and talk to Jo, she’s the owner.
    I started taking curcumin, a by product or turmeric, over 10 years ago when a study out of England determined the low rate of Alzheimer’s in India is a result of the large amount of curry in there diet. India has a very low cancer rate as well and numerous studies have shown strong anti cancer properties as well. The md Anderson cancer center has done numerous studies on curcumin.
    A slight thinning of the blood is the only side effect..good luck..
    Good luck

  652. Margie  •  Mar 2, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    I have added the Medved family to my prayer list! I am looking forward to your return to broadcasting as this most important election season heats up!! Blessings to you!

  654. Patrick  •  Mar 3, 2015 at 9:27 am

    Listen to you in the Philly area and always thought it was cool that you have the connection here. How ironic that it’s literally your voice that we’re all praying for! May God give you much strength and a speedy recovery.

  655. Douglas  •  Mar 3, 2015 at 7:36 pm

    Hi Mike, You and your family are in our prayers. Our daughter, Tiffany, is being treated for Leukemia (AML). We have great compassion for you and your family. Pax et Bonum.

  656. Lee  •  Mar 4, 2015 at 4:56 am

    Michael, you are the Mensch! God speed!

    Ugh. I’m so sorry to read this. I pray that you are well soon. God bless.

    You are in our prayers daily. Courage!

  662. David Best  •  Mar 5, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    Dear Michael- You are sorely missed on the airwaves, but I know if anyone can come back it will be you! I have consistently found that you are that rare commodity in our media today- a voice of reason, logic, and factually based discussion. All the other polarizing mudslingers out there cannot hold a candle to your wisdom and your reality-based passion! You are in all our thoughts, and we pull all that we can pull for your speedy recovery. You bestow that great gift of Clarity! Thank you so much!
    David

  663. Joe McFadden  •  Mar 5, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    Hi Michael,

    Just wondering how you are doing. Hope all is well.

    Thanks

    Joe

  664. David W Ellis  •  Mar 5, 2015 at 5:57 pm

    God Speed and well wishes Michael. There is always a prayer for the people who do good in this world. You are one of them. May God’s blessings shine on you and your family. I will be sending good thoughts your way.

  665. Bart  •  Mar 5, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    Godspeed Michael! Here’s wishing you a full and speedy recovery!

  666. Sunny  •  Mar 6, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Dear Michael,
    I wish you the best for your recovery. I am long time listener of your show. My drive back home for last 2 months is not the same as I miss you informative, educative and enlightening discussion. I don’t always agree to your opinion but your perspective gives me the other side of the coin I may be missing.

    I once again, pray for your speedy recovery.

    Regards,
    Sunny

  667. JS  •  Mar 6, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    Michael,
    Good luck with your treatment and recovery, I know in my heart that you will fight and beat this temporary set back. I had a battle with cancer 20 tears ago and was able to beat it. I remain cancer free today. I really enjoy listening to your show and hope you will be back soon. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  668. Ann  •  Mar 6, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    I just heard this news today. My husband & I are faithful listeners but crazy schedules have cut into our afternoon radio programs. We are sending prayers for a speedy recover. We know you’ll fight it and recover….fully! We need you on the radio. You are probably the smartest radio guy out there. Philadelphia area listeners on 990! Rest, heal and return.

  669. Patty  •  Mar 6, 2015 at 10:28 pm

    Guest hosts have done a wonderful job – still miss YOU terribly. Praying for a speedy recovery and return to the airwaves

  670. Jana  •  Mar 8, 2015 at 7:26 pm

    God bless your recovery – all of America loves you!!

  671. Pete  •  Mar 9, 2015 at 2:11 am

    Miss hearing you Michael and your intelligent wit….to a speedy recovery!

  672. Jim Mitchell  •  Mar 9, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    Mr. Medved, I am just now reading of your illness and am deeply saddened. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. It is obvious by the number of comments, that you have deep respect from many of us who know you from your radio voice. I count you as one, that has a great influence in today’s society and we need your message to continue to be heard. Thank you for all that you do, and know that we are praying for you.

  673. Carl Gartland  •  Mar 9, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    Dear Michael,
    Even though I am a teacher, I feel so grateful to be a student of yours and all the knowledge that you share with all your listeners on a daily basis. No one compares or come close to you and your beautiful rare spirit.
    I miss you very much and want you back healthy and happy as soon as possible.
    Your special education teacher fan from Chicago,

    Carl

  674. Bruce Jones  •  Mar 10, 2015 at 11:36 am

    I was saddened to hear just this morning of your illness. I did notice that David Boze was hosting your show quite a bit, but I thought you were taking a well-deserved extended vacation. Wishing you all the best for a quick return to your show.

  675. David  •  Mar 10, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    Michael, even through this personal challenge you inspire. I was surprised and saddened to hear the news, and at the same time inspired by the way in which you’re handling what can be for most a very daunting illness. Your response is a testament to how you live your life – with confidence in your convictions, carefully considered, and unwavering in your commitment. You are much more than your significant accomplishments as a host. You are an example and an inspiration. I hope for & expect a full & complete recovery for you. May you and your family be filled with peace & joy during this time.

  676. Alan  •  Mar 10, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    Hurry your ass up we need you!

  677. Margie  •  Mar 10, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    Listened to your radio address on January 30th, with sadness, and have continued to keep you in my prayers for a full recovery. Your words of wisdom and moral compass are so much appreciated and so desperately needed.
    I didn’t “hit” submit comment that day, but will be sure to follow through today!
    Peace and strength to you and you family and may your “radio family” be listening to you again soon.

  678. Norman  •  Mar 11, 2015 at 3:49 am

    I have been missing you through your absence and look forward to what I hope is a return very soon. I wish that more public voices were as thoughtful, perceptive, and even-handed as yourself. God bless you and give you the quick recovery you and we hope for.

  679. Laura Johnson Los Angeles  •  Mar 11, 2015 at 9:47 pm

    I miss listening to you SO, so much! After high school, I lived in Everett with my parents and attended a church called Living Word, and you came to speak. (I didn’t know much about you then.) You spoke about keeping magic alive for kids, I think. Your children were junior high age, I believe. Now I have my own children (ages10, 6, and 4), and I appreciate all you have taught me about history and politics, hoping my kids will learn, too. Like others have said, your knowledge of history and personal memory is impressive! I was a History major and enjoy your specials, such as the history of Christmas, and the event one I heard about Lincoln on Presidents Day. Fascinating! I also love your movie reviews and have to check them before deciding what to see. Thank you for welcoming debate on the show and inviting disagreers to call. I just love your show.

    With others, I join in prayer for your healing and recovery. I still dream of joining your trip to Israel one day. I pray you will grow stronger more and more and feel comforted by the love and support of your radio family.

  680. Jay  •  Mar 12, 2015 at 12:06 pm

    Michael,

    There are very few people in this world who are as consistently inspiring as you. I have listened for years, attended some of your functions in both Seattle and New York, and can honestly say that meeting you in person was the only time I ever felt intimidated by a celebrity. The reason is you are a truly great man in a world woefully deficient in great men and I was humbled. You bring reason to a forum muddied with hysteria, you offer clarity in a realm made murky by fanaticism, you instill levity despite the grave circumstances we as a people face daily. I’ve read your books, books you recommend, and listened to your lectures on various historical topics. You are a part of my family’s life and we cherish you.

    Get well soon, my friend. You are a beacon of hope.

    Warmest Regards,

    -J

  681. Howard D. Garlinger  •  Mar 12, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    Hello Michael,

    I have been a follower of yours for many years. I have been ill for awhile, but back in pretty good health and tune in to your radio station KTTH – AM 770, and did not hear your voice and then I found a note from you dated January 30, 2015 telling about your illness. I hope and pray for your recovery. I know our Lord will help you through all the things that you have to be going through. I must note that a dear friend for many years in Sacramento, CA is going through the same thing you are and he is doing pretty good. He told me via email (he has lost his voice) about his problem.

    I hope to hear how you are doing.

    Your old friend,

    Howard D. Garlinger

  682. joe schlabotnik  •  Mar 12, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    Hope you are healing..It’s looking grim on KCBQ..Bose and Davis were so bad The Q cancelled the last hour of your block

  683. Jarek  •  Mar 12, 2015 at 9:56 pm

    God bless you Michael

  684. Brian Saunders  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Dear Michael, I can’t tell you how much my heart goes out to you and how much I miss you, your show, your voice, your intellect, your insight, your humor, your reasoning, and your spirit. Hurry back! Praying that the hand of Almighty God will defend you, uplift you, comfort you, and heal you! Jehovah Rapha!

  685. Geri Morgan  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 3:13 pm

    Kept waiting for your return and not hearing you. Finally “googled” “where is Michael Medved” and read about your illness. Miss you a lot and hope you do have a full recovery and a chance at a long, healthy and productive life. Thanks for making it so easy to leave a note on this site – don’t often write to radio hosts or stations – but, you’re so very special and I just wanted to give my best for your future.

  686. Don  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    Living in the area and having had a similar form of cancer, I know the largely liberal healthcare providers in Seattle will take good care of you! They are a most competent and compassionate bunch. Aren’t we lucky that we can access such excellent care? It’s a wish I have for all Americans.

  687. Ronda  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 5:32 pm

    OMG! I thought Shirely was crazy – then William called! It is so hard for me to believe that people are this racist and ignorant. I can’t really put it into words, the best phrase I can think of is “it hurts my brain” to hear these people talk.

  688. Ronda  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    One more comment in response to the caller, Shirely. Why are people more upset that Joe Wilson was rude than they are that Obama lied???? Isn’t lying to the American people worse? Again, trying to understand this, “makes my brain hurt”.

  689. Carol gallagher  •  Mar 13, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Dear Michael- I miss you and along with many others, consider you a dear friend. I have been listening to you for many years and therefore know that you are surrounded with much love and caring from your family, friends and doctors.

    Thank you for the heartfelt letter you wrote to you listeners and I pray for your full recovery. You are in my prayers daily and I wish you and your family God’s peace and comfort. You are truly missed.

    Blessings. Carol

  690. Alan  •  Mar 15, 2015 at 8:10 am

    Over 17 years of listening, you have provided an ongoing education that exceeds the finest curriculum. From Whidbey Island, Washington to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, I have taken your spoken interviews and comments with me. History, morality, politics, culture, ethics…all placed in a factual perspective. Get well soon. Our lives depend on it.

  691. nancy B  •  Mar 16, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    God be with you. I enjoy your show so much, your explanations and fairness are so realistically presented I am able to absorb all the info presented. Your replacements are good but just not you. All the best to you and your family. Be tough, don’t give up, your audience will be waiting for you.

  692. cynthia  •  Mar 17, 2015 at 5:40 pm

    I was getting annoyed that every time I turned on the radio you weren’t there. Finally went to your website and feel very bad for being annoyed. You must be going through a very scary time. Just really respect your opinion. My best to you and your family.

  693. Paul Henry  •  Mar 17, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    Hello Michael. We have a wonderful two-way radio with God, prayer. We are praying for your full recovery. You are a voice of reason and logic and I depend on your opinions, which are facts. Heal, then come back.

  694. Fachtna Carey  •  Mar 17, 2015 at 7:38 pm

    You are missed every day, though your backup hosts are doing an excellent job. Your intellect, superb mastery of facts, even the most obscure, and complete intellectual honesty are so refreshing. I wish you every success in your fight against throat cancer, and we will remember you in our prayers. We look forward to your return, but be sure to take all the time you need, as your health and long-term survival trump any short-term desire to return to broadcasting. God bless you Michael, and God speed!

  695. Kali  •  Mar 18, 2015 at 1:07 am

    Come back soon Michael! There is so much happening in the world and I am dying to know your opinions on all of it. I have been listening to you for 10 years and my day doesn’t seem quite right without a bit of your voice in it.

  696. Eddie  •  Mar 18, 2015 at 7:37 am

    Michael, your wisdom and passion for this nation will be missed. I will be praying for a quick healing, looking forward to hearing you again.

  697. David  •  Mar 18, 2015 at 11:29 am

    Hoping your recovery is going well. We miss you on the air and look forward to hearing your thoughtful comments back on the air soon!

  698. Leslie  •  Mar 19, 2015 at 3:46 pm

    Michael, wishing you a complete and speedy recovery! Can’t wait to have you back on the air!!!

  699. Greg  •  Mar 19, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    Michael, I put your name on the prayer roll of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Not to mention my own family praying for your recovery.

  700. brad  •  Mar 20, 2015 at 11:36 am

    Michael, I know a fellow Jew with great connections. I’ve been praying to Him for your full and speedy recovery

  701. Don Eaton  •  Mar 23, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    God Bless and keep you Michael. We need your wisdom, that ‘lamp unto our feet’ to CONTNUE to burn for many more years.

    So may the Good Lord grant you a speedy recovery so that we can continue to thrive with you on the radio.

  702. Brandt Ross  •  Mar 24, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    Dear Michael and Family,
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you……may your recovery continue and may we soon be able to share your wisdom on radio.
    We miss you and wish you only the best.

  703. Bernadine Fischi  •  Mar 31, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    My husband just discovered your radio show and was very, very impressed. I just read some of the comments and you have many devoted followers. As a Christian, I pray to my Lord and Savior, Jesus, for your complete healing.

  704. Gilberto Garcia  •  Mar 31, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    Most Hispanics are Conservatives, they just don’t know it.
    Michael, thank you, because of you I have learned so much about this Beautiful Country that I love. I wish you a complete recovery, and yes, We need you back on air soon, but first get well my friend.

  705. Tom Bentzen  •  Apr 1, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    God bless, and God speed Michael. You are now, have been and I pray will forever be a refreshingly calm light in mine, and I’m guessing many peoples lives. We owe you more than we can ever repay. A forever thank you, and my prayers go out to you and your wonderful family for hope, calm and peace of mind and heart as you recover from this illness.

    Dear Michael,

    I taught your adorable daughter, Sara in school at OEA Academy many years ago. I was very saddened to learn about your cancer and please be assured that you are in my prayers. My husband and I enjoy your radio show and we look forward to your returning!!
    God Bless.

  708. Scott Dolfay  •  Apr 6, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    Dear Michael and Medved family,
    It’s my understanding that you’re on the mend; I certainly hope so, pray so. This sorry world needs every good person to make it better; you with your heart and intellect have been doing that for years. As an all too often reviled Unificationist you have only showed kindness to me. I thank you for that. For now get well soon, the nation awaits your second advent on the public stage.

  709. Vicki C.  •  Apr 7, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    I just heard. I tune in on my way home from work trouble its only 5 minutes away and I kept hoping someone would say where you were. I don’t listen to the others only you! You are in my prayers Michael. Hope you can return soon.
    Ps my dad had throat cancer before the age of 42 and lived to be 77 cancer free. Yippe!!!

  710. Padraig  •  Apr 8, 2015 at 3:51 pm

    Michael I hope your healing is going well, you are in my prayers. There is not a radio show or wealth of knowledge comparable to you and your show.

  711. John and Kathleen  •  Apr 10, 2015 at 12:06 pm

    You have been in our hearts and prayers every day. We were so happy to hear you on your radio show yesterday (Thursday April 9th, 2015) and hearing the good news that you are doing well and will be returning very soon to your radio talk show. We continue to lift you up in prayer and can’t wait to have you back on radio again.
    God bless you, your lovely wife, Diane, your children and daughter in law.

  712. Pam Schmoll  •  Apr 10, 2015 at 7:05 pm

  714. Jacob Rodenhausen  •  Apr 14, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    Dear Michael, It’s been a busy year for my family and I as we waited with excitement and great anticipation of our first born to arrive . Between the holiday demands of work ,bad weather ,and of course focus towards my wife being pregnant and also having given birth early in the year,how I normally would tune in to your show,just about every single day,well since this past December I was unable. Now that things have calmed down over all,I looked forward to getting back to my usual pace and routine ,which certainly included listening to your show daily from 3pm -6pm with great anticipation. Long story short,I just discovered that you were not on vacation,but are fighting/recovering from throat cancer. What an unpleasant disturbing shock it was to learn of this. …You have been my voice of reason,my radio teacher, my point of view reinforcement as I ,like you I do not believe in (and am just simply NOT into political correctness) ;yet you put things so so bluntly and clearly and ask questions to the idiots on the left,that leave moments of dead air time ,just makes me have to laugh. You have a gift of a great mind fused with simply laying out the blunt truth but in a plain way ,yet full of wisdom. I have learned so much from you,as we all ,your faithful audience has. You have been friend of the family via the air waves for many many years. Our hearts go out to you and to your family. We pray and wish you a full and expedient recovery . May God be with you and may He continue to bless you during your fight /recovery. May He strengthen and heal you and continue to bless us,(your audience) with your voice for us who have the heart but not the boldness or quit wittiness ,or courage that you have, to say what must be said despite how easy or popular it may be to the main stream. You speak the truth with such straight ,honest yet loving authority ! I /we love it!!!!!! In all sincerity,we wish you all of the best,our most favorite radio personality in this greatest nation of God’s green Earth!!! 😉 All the best,Jake Rodenhausen and family

  715. allan benezra  •  Apr 21, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery
    although you have admirable fill in hosts there is only one Michael Medved
    you are in my opinion the smartest host of any radio talk you and I have more respect for you than any other

    may god keep his hand of protection on you and your entire family during your recovery

    you will me missed tremendously and please have your hosts keep us up on the progress of your recovery

  716. Rick Raimondi  •  Apr 21, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    Hi Michael, my mother, who is 84 years young, just completed 8 weeks of radiation/chemo-therapy. I was with her 24/7 during weeks 6 and 8. I have observed first hand the pain and suffering that a patient endures. My mother completed her therapy 4 weeks ago and is in full recovery. I am confident you will do the same. I wish you and your family the very best and have you, such a great American Patriot, in my prayer.

    God Bless and Shalom

  717. Edwin C.  •  Apr 22, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Hi Michael,

    I am sorry to hear that you are battling cancer and I would like to attempt to help. Have you ever heard of the alkaline treatment? Our bodies are designed to work at its best in an alkaline environment however, the american diet is very acidic. Starting with the water we drink and then the diet which very acidic. Items like processed food, fast food, canned food, sugar, sodas, too many carbohydrates, red meat, alcohol, tobacco, etc.

    In 1931 a doctor named Otto Warburg, was a German doctor who was awarded the Nobel prize for discovering the root cause of all cancer. What he discovered was that cancer will only metastasize in an acid environment. If we keep our tissues in an alkaline environment that cancer can not exist. This means drinking around two liters of alkaline water a day and eating a more plant based diet such as asparagus, broccoli, asparagus, avocados, kale, etc. You can Google alkaline and cancer to find out about the beneficial effects. I truly wish you the best and that you may beat the cancer.

    A great joy to hear your voice again. I had no doubt that your courage would beat the boogyman and that you would be back doing your show faster than anyone would imagine.
    Keep fighting for your health first, and then republic. You are well on your way to the first, but we need your help for the second.

    On the day Mike told the world he had throat cancer I went to the Doctor in Shenzhen, China and was misdiagnosed with benign throat cyst. After they took out the cyst they found it was malignant and I began diagnostics in China, where they determined it was tonsil cancer. Quality in China is okay, but the problem with China is that cancer rates are growing explosively, 16% a year, so cancer care results in China are getting worse. As luck with have it I had to leave China to renew my visa and went to Taiwan. I was advised to consider care in Taiwan and I am so glad I did. Care here has been superb. Probably the only possible caveat is the communication issue, because their aren’t that many foreign patients, but for me personally I speak Taiwanese so it’s impossible for me to evaluate English proficiency of people I have never heard speak English. It’s great to have international friends. Taiwan for me is my Israel, a wonderful, friendly place filled with hardworking industrious, creative people. I should do okay with my cancer. I try to glean everything I can from Mike’s treatment and appreciate the comments from the others above.

    Dear Michael,

    I wan’t aware that you were away for such a serious issue; unfortunately due to work hours I don’t get the opportunity to listen as much as I formerly did. I have been listening to your guest host, all good, a change but not you. I did hear you today sesned a change in your voice. I suspected a stroke. I checked yoir website and read your wonderful letter to us listeners and am shocked. Damned cancer. Human rust that almost all face at some point in life as our bodies age.

    I met you and your lovely wife some years ago at the Minnesota State Fair and was pleased that you not only stopped to exchange greetings with me but lingered for a nice conversation. I actually walked with you a bit and gave you some advice on fair attractions as you were just finished with your remote broadcast and were off to wander the grounds. I am glad we had that brief time together.

    What lies ahead for you will no doubt be a formidable challenge. Family, friends and those of us out here who have enjoyed your wisdom for all these years are your support. You may not have known us save a breif exchange of opinions on your program but know that we care for your well being and wish you a full recovery.

    I do not get to hear you very often because here in Dallas on KSKY your program comes on when I’m home and not listening to the radio. So I heard you last week as you were returning from your leave and I knew something had happened to your voice but I had no idea of your illness. Praise be to God for your recovery and I know you will be ever stronger with the coming weeks.

    When I did listen to you regularly, I wanted so to meet you and thank you for your graciousness with your callers. You truly want opposing views to be discussed and that is so refreshing when many conservative hosts are less congenial with differing viewpoints.

    I’ve thought how wonderful it would be to be part of one of your Israel trips. Again, you welcome Christian and Jew equally and have such respect for your Christian listeners. Thank you for being a positive voice of reason in an ever unreasonable world.

    God bless you and your family and it would be a privilege to pray for you and your recovery. Stay strong and keep bringing your sound opinions to the airwaves.

    I have listened to your show for a number of years and appreciate your conservative views, also have enjoyed your movie reviews. Hang in there and keep up the good work. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    I did not know you were sick, Michael
    I haven’t listened to your show for over 2 years because they will not broadcast it. In Utah, for some weird reason. Whatever you have I hope you are made well..
    And, please come back to Utah to announce your wonderful show. God bless and be with you.
    Best regards, Pam Green

    Dear Michael,

    Hearing your voice again a few weeks ago was one of the most beautiful sounds that I ever heard even though your throat is still healing and you must be experiencing discomfort at times. Your show has a very uplifting quality and it is a privilege to once again be able to hear your unique mix of insightfulness, fair-mindedness, civility.

    My prayers have been with you and your family and I am so happy to hear that the prognosis is good. My apologies for not conveying my well-wishes much earlier as I had intended to but I hope and pray for your continued speedy and full recovery. Shalom my friend.

    Sincerely,
    Andrew in Bothell

    I hadn’t listened to you in years. I decided to look into what had happened to you, only to find that you had been afflicted with this demon that has attacked your throat. While I am saddened that you are ailing, maybe this is karma from all of the hate that you have spewed specifically towards gays and lesbians. I have found most of your views offensive, and I am not easily offended. So, this thing that has affected your voice, may be Gods way of quieting you.

  731. Duane  •  Jun 8, 2015 at 12:19 am

    Best to you on your recovery! My wife is a 15 year cancer survivor and attributes much of her recovery to her faith, and to excellent care. Both of which will see you through this crisis.
    You and your family will be in our prayers.
