News Anchor Reveals He Has 4-6 Months Left to Live on Air
WCIA news anchor Dave Benton told viewers on live television Thursday that he had 4-6 months left to live.
“I’ve found out a few weeks ago, my brain cancer is back. But, I’ve learned more about what the future holds. This new tumor is too big for surgery or radiation. I’ve decided to do an antibody treatment and some chemo to try to slow its growth. That’s my best option. With that being said, doctors say I have anywhere from four-to-six months before things turn bad. I’m dedicated to keep working. I’ll be here bringing you the news as long as I am able. I’m grateful for the outpouring of support, prayers and cards. It’s meant the world to me. It’s changed my life."
I'm not sure if I could come to grips with something so scary as this, much less have a great attitude like he does about it; and on live TV. Wow.
