Kathy Griffin has shared a candid update about how she is feeling after having part of her lung removed during surgery for cancer. Earlier this week, the two-time Emmy winner announced to fans that she had been diagnosed with stage one lung cancer and that she would be having surgery imminently.
Griffin’s comedy career began in the late 1980s, when she joined the Los Angeles improvisational troupe The Groundlings.
She has led numerous stand-up specials for HBO and Bravo. Following her 16th special for Bravo, she broke the world record for having the most number of television specials broadcast on a single network.
