Wow! Grassfire Nation did it again! Our team members not only reached the original goal of 10,000 signers for Rush Limbaugh's "Get Well" card, they blew past BOTH of our "stretch goals" for this initiative.
As of 11:30 p.m. ET last night, Grassfire has recorded more than 20,000 signatures from Rush fans, thanking the conservative-radio icon and wishing him a fast and full recovery from lung cancer.
On Monday, we'll start the delivery process and get your signature to the Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) Network studios in New York City as soon as possible. Until then, you still have about 36 hours left to add your name, too.Read more
In yesterday's email (see here), we told you about the shocking response Grassfire has received to Rush Limbaugh's "Get Well" card. It was all great news since we launched this initiative 10 days ago -- that is, until yesterday.
You see, our staff was even more shocked by the response we received after tweeting about the card. In an effort to reach our new stretch goal of 20,000 signatures, Grassfire paid Twitter to promote a post inviting people to add their names.
Members of the "tolerant" Left didn't hold back, revealing the worst of the social-media site, which can become a "cesspool" in 280 characters or less. Here are a few of the negative comments posted after asking people to thank Rush and wish him a fast, full recovery from lung cancer:Read more
To be honest, Grassfire is shocked by the response to our "Get Well" card for Rush Limbaugh. After learning about his "advanced lung cancer" earlier this month, we knew we had to do something for the conservative-radio icon.
The Grassfire team thought 10,000 signatures was a great goal, but some staffers wondered if we were aiming too high. Nope. We reached that goal in just four days.
"How about 15,000?" we asked. "Would that many team members be willing to sign a 'Get Well' card for Rush?" Yup. We blew past that "stretch goal" on Tuesday.
Now, with more than 16,000 signatures, we have one more "mountain" to climb -- 20,000 names. Will you please help?Read more
On Rush Limbaugh's radio show last week, a caller offered to donate a lung to the conservative radio icon. Rush, who's battling "advanced" lung cancer, was so shocked by the gesture that he could barely speak.
"You all just continue to stop me dead in my tracks," Rush said with his voice breaking. "Everything that's happened to me is a blessing. I hear things like that, and I don't know what to do with it."
Grassfire is only about 1,000 names short of reaching our "stretch goal" of 15,000-signatures for Rush's "Get Well" card. We want to deliver the card THIS WEEK, which means you don't have much longer to add your name.

Just four days after announcing to his 20 million listeners that he had lung cancer, Rush Limbaugh was back on the air. On Friday, February 7, he shared details of his phone call from President Trump three days earlier, inviting him to the State of the Union Address.
Rush admitted that he held off on having a "serious medical procedure" so he could travel to Washington, D.C. to attend. He said the President promised him, "You don't want to miss this. It's gonna be great." Then Mr. Trump surprised Rush by having the First Lady present him with the Medal of Freedom during the speech.
In addition to sharing the State of the Union backstory, Rush also explained to his listeners: "It's late stage. It's advanced lung cancer. But there's good news associated with the diagnosis and the treatment." While the conservative talk-radio icon didn't offer additional details, he did express confidence in his team of "great doctors" who have "already discovered some interesting things that should facilitate treatment."Read more
For more than 30 years, Rush Limbaugh has been one of the nation's leading conservative voices. He has championed America's founding ideals of liberty and limited government like few talk radio hosts ever.
On February 3, the conservative radio icon shocked and saddened his listeners by announcing he had "advanced lung cancer." The next day, during his State of the Union Address, President Trump surprised Limbaugh with the Medal of Freedom.
"Here tonight is a special man," the President said, "someone beloved by millions of Americans who just received a Stage 4, advanced cancer diagnosis. This is not good news, but what is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and winner that you will ever meet. Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country. ... I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom."Read more
