‘I Am at Peace’: Anchor Shares Heartbreaking Cancer News with Viewers

A local news anchor shared some emotionally heavy news on the air this week about his cancer diagnosis. WCIA anchor Dave Benton said on Thursday he’s been told by doctors that his cancer is back and he has only months to love.

But what was most stunning about Benton’s announcement was his resolve as he told it. He sounded rather upbeat and spoke of living the rest of his life to the fullest.

Benton said, “I believe that I’m in God’s hands. I am at peace and I know he’s going to take care of the days ahead and that the goal here is to have the best ones possible.”

He also used the opportunity to highlight that there are plenty of other people out there suffering from cancer who need emotional support as well.
