Kushner Says in Private Cancer Battle, His Life Was ‘In the Hands of God’

Share:

Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Donald Trump and one of his top advisers during his administration, is opening up about his battle with thyroid cancer that he kept private during his time in the White House.

Kushner, 41, revealed his cancer diagnosis and his treatment in his new book, Breaking History: A White House Memoir, which will be released on Aug. 9, according to People magazine.

The former White House senior adviser disclosed how his doctors diagnosed and treated him during the time he was working for his father-in-law:

“On the morning that I traveled to Texas to attend the opening of a Louis Vuitton factory, White House physician Sean Conley pulled me into the medical cabin on Air Force One,” Kushner writes. “‘Your test results came back from Walter Reed,’ he said. ‘It looks like you have cancer. We need to schedule surgery right away.'”

He recalls telling Conley: “Please don’t tell anyone—especially my wife or my father-in-law,” according to People.

Kushner noted his cancer was caught early, but surgeons told him they would have to remove a “substantial part of my thyroid” which could cause long-term damage to his voice.

According to Fox News, Kushner kept his diagnosis a secret from everyone. He only told his wife, Ivanka Trump, and a small circle, including his aides Avi Berkowitz and Cassidy Luna and then-chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

“With the exception of Ivanka, Avi, Cassidy and Mulvaney, I didn’t tell anyone at the White House—including the president,” Kushner writes.

Trump’s senior adviser says he tried to keep himself busy at work to stop thinking about the cancer.
