Columbus Weatherman Enters Hospice

FTVLive has been telling you about the battle being fought by WBNS (Columbus) Chief Meteorologist Chris Bradley.

Bradley was diagnosed with leukemia back in March and by April, doctors thought they had gotten the cancer out of Bradley's body.

But, the cancer continued to grow inside him and now the news is really sad.

Last night, Bradley announced that he's transitioning from palliative care to hospice care.

He posted this note on the station’s website:

Dear friends,


It's difficult to write this post. I wish I had better news to share with you. After 21 months battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia, we've simply run out of options to treat this disease. I have an aggressive form of Leukemia and it is relentless and sneaky. We've done everything we could do to fight this beast. 5 rounds of chemo, a failed stem cell transplant, failed clinical trials and a failed immunotherapy trial.

I'm at home now, surrounded by my family. Jason and the kids have been so loving and devoted to my care all this time. Truly, we have fought this disease together. Our love for each other is so strong and saying goodbye has been excruciating for all of us.

I thank you for your continued prayers as I transition from palliative care at home to hospice care here at home.

I want to thank all of you for the love and support you have shown me and my family over the years. Both in sickness and in health. I've loved being a part of this community.

Our faith has seen us through many dark, scary times. Our faith sustains us, even now. I know my God and I know he is in control.

Please always remember that which we share in common is stronger than our differences. I am sincerely humbled to know I can call you all friends.

This photo was from the happiest day of my life, the day we married with our two kids right at our sides.

With much love,
