In heartbreaking letter to readers, columnist Charles Krauthammer announces he is dying

Posted: Updated:

Conservative opinion columnist Charles Krauthammer said Friday he has only a few weeks left to live after an aggressive form of cancer returned. 

In a column in the Washington Post, Krauthammer said recent tests show his cancer has returned after he had surgery last August to remove a tumor. 

"There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over," said Krauthammer. 

"I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended," he said.
