Greta Van Susteren’s Husband John Coale Battling Cancer

Attorney, TV commentator and political adviser John Coale is battling cancer. His wife, Fox News Channel anchor Greta Van Susteren, revealed the news on her blog, GretaWire.

Van Susteren says that he was diagnosed in December, and has undergone a number of surgeries since.

I worked during all those surgeries (did our show) because I did not want to draw attention to us and have to answer a million questions (I didn’t even know the answers to the questions!) I would do OTR, then after the show drive an hour to the hospital in Baltimore…spend the night in his room….and the next morning…drive home …get dressed…and go to Fox and repeat the cycle after the show. I felt lucky to be able to do that since many families can not.

Coale  also served as an adviser to former Fox News contributor Sarah Palin, among other politicians and notable figures.
