In a planned memoir, according to The New York Times, Jared Kushner will discuss his battle with thyroid cancer while acting as a presidential advisor to Donald Trump.
In October of 2019, Kushner heard of his cancer diagnosis on a presidential trip to Texas.
“On the morning of my trip to Texas to attend the inauguration of a Louis Vuitton plant, White House physician Sean Conley dragged me into the medical cabin on Air Force One,” Kushner wrote in his memoir.
“‘Your test results came back from Walter Reed,’ he said. ‘It looks like you have cancer.’”
“‘We need to schedule a surgery right away.’”
Kushner reported keeping his cancer diagnosis mostly confidential, informing only his wife Ivanka Trump, White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and two of his staff members.
Kushner is Donald Trump’s son-in-law. The president learnt of the diagnosis in an indirect manner and inquired about the surgery prior to its execution.
On August 23, “Breaking History: A White House Memoir” will be published.
