Earlier this week, comedian Kathy Griffin shared a candid message with her fans about her cancer diagnosis. She has since revealed that she’s “home from the hospital.”

Griffin is best known as an award-winning comedian and actor. For five years, she hosted the reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and she has led many successful comedy tours.

While she has a raunchy and oftentimes controversial sense of humor, the star consistently sides with progressive viewpoints. She had taken bold stances for LGBT rights and against Donald Trump, earning her the title of being a “gay icon.”

On August 2, Griffin shared some devastating news with her social media followers. She wrote that she has been undergoing treatment for lung cancer and will soon require surgery on her left lung.

A few days later, the 60-year-old comedian dropped some more major news: she had attempted suicide in June 2020.

Things seem to be looking up for the bold actor as she revealed that she’s currently recovering from her surgery in the comfort of her home.
