News anchor battling brain cancer tells viewers he only has 4-6 months to live

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – A news anchor in Illinois told viewers he only has four to six months to live during a news broadcast on Thursday.

WCIA news anchor Dave Benton recently found out his brain tumor is too large for surgery or radiation.

“I’ve found out a few weeks ago, my brain cancer is back. But, I’ve learned more about what the future holds. This new tumor is too big for surgery or radiation. I’ve decided to do an antibody treatment and some chemo to try to slow its growth. That’s my best option. That being said, doctors say I have anywhere from four-to-six months before things turn bad. I’m dedicated to keep working. I’ll be here bringing you the news as long as I am able. I’m grateful for the outpouring of support, prayers and cards. It’s meant the world to me. It’s changed my life,” said Benton.
