Elisabeth Hasselbeck Returns to TV, Reveals She Had a Tumor Removed

By    |   Friday, 14 Nov 2014 09:02 AM

Elisabeth Hasselbeck rejoined "Fox & Friends" on Friday after being absent for several weeks. She announced that she underwent tumor removal surgery, and thanked everyone for their ongoing support, choking up as her co-hosts presented her with a "welcome back" cake.

"I had a bit of a scare. You know, that's life. I had a tumor in my abdomen. My doctor said you need to get it out by the end of the month," she explained, Deadline Hollywood reported.

"I did what they said, I had a phenomenal surgeon. I had a scary week where we didn't know what the results were, but I'm ok. Everything came back ok . . . Thankfully I had the blessing of it not being cancer."

Hasselbeck emphasized how lucky she was to have gotten top-notch treatment, and how supportive her family, employer, colleagues, and fans were throughout the ordeal.

"I’m not a person who thinks that I take a lot for granted, but I certainly don’t take it for granted now," she said.

She also said that it was reassuring to know that she would have support from colleagues who've survived cancer diagnoses had it turned out that way, and tipped her hat to their undeniable strength.

"So many people I know have stared down the barrel of that cancer gun, and looked at it when they have gotten bad news, and done remarkable things, courageously, to fight it," said Hasselbeck. "So I knew if I got that kind of news I would be in their wings and, by their example, able to fight it. I didn’t get that message from my doctors. I got a clear and clean bill of health and I’m thankful."
