Charles Krauthammer, a famed Pulitzer Prize winner and long time Fox News contributor, passes away at the age of 68
The famous Pulitzer prize-winning Fox commentator Charles Krauthammer passed away at the age of 68. His tragic death comes two weeks after he revealed that he did not have much longer to live due to his battle with Cancer. The iconic Fox News contributor shared the harrowing announcement that his cancer had come back despite a surgery last August.
In an open letter, Krauthammer wrote, "I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me. 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."
Krauthammer was born in New York in 1950 and earned his place in writing and medicine. At the age of 22, while he was studying at Harvard Medical School, he met with a freak diving board accident which left him permanently paralyzed from the neck down. Ever since, he has had to use a wheelchair. Charles Krauthammer is survived by his wife and his son.
