Longtime conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer revealed that he only has weeks to live and is losing his battle with cancer.

“I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months,” the Fox News commentator’s letter began. “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.”

He said that he’s been battling an abdominal tumor and other complications, Fox reported, adding that he had a malignant tumor in his abdomen removed last August. Krauthammer said that after the procedure, he believed that he was recovering.

“However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned,” Krauthammer, 68, wrote in the Washington Post. “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.”

Krauthammer thanked readers, television viewers, and colleagues who gave his life’s work “consequence,” adding: “I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking.”

“I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny,” he said, according to the Washington Post.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, the chief of Fox News, issued a statement on the development.

“Charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at Fox News,” Murdoch said. “His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer.”

“His words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come,” Murdoch added.

Fox News analyst Brit Hume wrote on Twitter: “The news that Charles Krauthammer’s condition is terminal is heartbreaking. Beyond the brilliance of his analysis and the paralysis he so remarkably overcame, there is his extraordinary personal grace and kindness. I have missed him very much. I always will.”

Vice President Mike Pence also issued a statement on Krauthammer’s revelation.

“Karen and I were saddened to learn that Charles Krauthammer, a man we greatly admire, is nearing the end of his extraordinary life. His wit, his wisdom, and his tireless defense of Western values have made an indelible mark on the minds of millions of Americans,” Pence said in a statement.
