Neil Cavuto has been fighting various health problems for a long time
Cavuto has been diagnosed with one after another life threatening diseases but each time he has fought it bravely.
He was first diagnosed with 4th stage cancer (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma), but he beat it miraculously, only to get diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) a year later. Dealing with the second disease has become more difficult for him as there is no cure for it.
During an interview with TVNewser, Cavuto said, “Having had cancer right before my MS diagnosis, I can honestly say MS is worse. There’s no endgame here, no cure here, no concoction of chemotherapy or radiation that could make it all go away here.”
“So I take steroids, and weekly injections, and I exercise my legs a great deal. A big common fear with this disease is that eventually you lose use of your legs. In fact, my neurologist is surprised I haven’t already,” he continued.
In June 2016, he underwent a triple bypass surgery (a type of heart surgery), but it did not stop him from returning to television. The peace of mind that comes from work has been the best medicine for Cavuto.
