My prayers go out to Rush and his family.
Rush is a legend, and many would consider him a kingmaker among conservative Presidents. Last year he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, but he continued on strong.
Recently, some of his staff have come out publicly and offered prayers for him, as he misses more days of work to fight the illness.
There is a public facebook group that you can join and send prayers to both Rush and his family here.

New York Daily News reported:
Ailing right-wing broadcaster Rush Limbaugh took Wednesday off from his nationally syndicated radio show as he continues battling lung cancer.
The announcement was made by his producer James Golden, whom listeners know as Bo Snerdley.
“Our prayers are with Rush as he continues to fight the illness he (h)as been afflicted with,” Golden tweeted midmorning Wednesday. “We are still praying for a remission. Today @KenMatthews will fill in for Rush. Thanks for all of your prayers, kind words and wishes for our Rush. God Bless you.”
Limbaugh announced on Feb. 3, 2020, that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

In recent months, Limbaugh has made clear that he realizes he will likely die soon. During one of his last broadcasts of 2020, he said, “It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.”
In October, Limbaugh confessed his Christian faith, saying, “I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is of immense value, strength, confidence. That’s why I’m able to remain fully committed to the idea that what is supposed to happen will happen when it’s meant to.”
Limbaugh was awarded the “highest civilian honor” last year by former President Donald Trump. As The Daily Wire reported last February:
