Fox News Host Reveals Imminent Surgery, Says Goodbye
That voice belongs to none other than Ed Henry.
The Daily Caller's Virginia Kruta has more:
Henry, who regularly hosts “Fox & Friends Weekend,” fought back tears as he made the announcement during Sunday morning’s show.
Henry is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to donate approximately one-third of his liver to replace his sister’s, which due to a hereditary condition, is failing. Because the liver can regenerate, if the transplant is successful, both donor and recipient could have a fully-functioning liver within a matter of weeks.
But as Henry noted, being a living donor is not just as simple as “finding a match.” Donors must be healthy enough to withstand both the physical and mental impact of the procedure — and for that reason, he had his own medical team doing a series of tests and evaluations before he was even able to inform Colleen that he was planning to attempt donation.
“In my case, I desperately wanted to donate without reservation, but the doctors instructed me I first had to lose 10 to 15 pounds to cleanse fat from my liver and get the medical clearance needed for surgery,” Henry explained.
