1. Limbaugh revealed he's battling cancer this week.

On Monday's edition of his radio show, Limbaugh shared that he has lung cancer, and that means he will occasionally be unable to do his show because of his treatments.

"I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, diagnosis confirmed by two medical institutions back on January 20th," he said, later adding, "But we’ve got a great bunch of doctors, a great team assembled. We’re at full-speed ahead on this and it’s just now a matter of implementing what we are gonna be told later this week."

2. He was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom at President Trump's State of the Union address.

At Tuesday's address, Trump and wife Melania presented Limbaugh with the award, as Trump thanked him for "decades of tireless devotion to our country."

The news certainly came as a surprise, and has drawn both praise and criticism all over the internet since, with many people voicing their opinions on Twitter.

3. But who is Rush Limbaugh's wife? Kathryn Adams Limbaugh's lineage goes back to the founding of America.

4. Kathryn has been open about why their age difference works for them.

In a 2008 interview, Kathryn shared that the 26-year age difference between her and Limbaugh worked because of her unusual upbringing.

"I grew up so differently, traveling around the world, that I'm sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age," she said at the time. "Rush has such amazing experience."

5. They founded the Rush and Kathryn Limbaugh Family Foundation.

In 2018, the couple started the Rush and Kathryn Limbaugh Famiily Foundation, which currently boasts over $5 million in income. Not much is known about the foundation itself, though, but Limbaugh is known for supporting causes like leukemia research and the armed forces

6. They paired up to write children's books together. 

Limbaugh and Kathryn write the Rush Revere series of American history novels for children together. Given Limbaugh's interest in politics and Kathryn's lineage, it totally makes sense that this is something they'd team up for.

Limbaugh obviously has a difficult battle ahead, but it seems Kathryn will be at his side for all of it.
