The comedian took to social media to tell people that she was battling cancer.
The note began, “I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer.” It continued, “I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed,” the note continued. “Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked!”
