Bryant Gumbel is Being Treated for Lung Cancer

Former Today show anchor Bryant Gumbel is being treated for lung cancer, he told Kelly Ripa.

“They took part of my lung and they took some other goodies,” Bryant, 61, said on Live with Regis & Kelly on Tuesday.

“The pathology on most of the stuff came back benign,” he said, “but enough aggressive cells had escaped the tumor that it warranted some treatment.”

“I went through that and it’s done now.”

Bryant also shared that he’ll be seeing his surgeon next week but is okay for the time being, saying he hopes he gets clearance to play golf again soon.

All our best to Bryant and his family – here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!

Wish him well!
Watched him on Regis and Kelly yesterday, where he said that he feels sorry for Tiger Woods!!
What’s up with that? Kelly was surprised to hear that as well.

Can’t stand the man. He cheated on his first wife, June, after 26 years of marriage and two children. After they divorced, she had to go to court to get him to pay her a decent alimony. What goes around, comes around.

@*** I was just going to mention that to @Fyn.

He cheated on his first wife to marry the wife he is with now. So I guess at least one of the reason’s he said he felt sorry for Tiger for cheating on his wife is the he empathizes with him. They have that in common for sure.

Some men just lose their lustre for me when they cheat, and these two certainly did.

Wishes him well nevertheless. Bad spot on,yeha the thing with June.He and Hillary were togetherunbeknownsit to June,but add insult to injury , he refused to just settle fairly with her. She stood her guns and gought for her fair share.

He hasn’t caught a break since he left The Today Show.

At least he has health insurance!

Gumbel cheated on his former wife with the blonde hussy above who he is married to now. His former wife is a black woman and she mothered his children. He brazenly snuck around with his current wife and brought embarrassment to his ex-wfe. I haven’t liked him since then. He always had ‘blonde’ ambition like Woods.

I hope he’s okay, lung cancer is no joke. He may be fine, but from what I know there’s almost no chance of surviving lung cancer, it’s as bad as pancreatic. I really hope the disease will not turn him into a vegetable…..
