"However, Keytruda – recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration – for cases like mine, has proved to be a godsend for many patients previously thought hopeless. While the results are preliminary, they are hopeful: it looks like I have the key mutation that gives Keytruda one up on this terrible disease," Raimondo said.
Raimondo has bonafides within the libertarian movement that few can duplicate. In addition to being the editorial director of a successful non-interventionist publication for many years, Raimondo was a cherished colleague of the late Murray N. Rothbard, the preeminent Austrian economist largely credited for establishing the modern libertarian movement.
Raimondo has written several books as well including, "An Enemy of the State: The Life of Murray N. Rothbard" and "Reclaiming the American Right: The Lost Legacy of the Conservative Movement." Additionally, Raimondo has won favor with anti-establishment conservatives such as Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan while refusing to jeopardize the pure libertarian message.
"I can't help but think that this illness is a temporary inconvenience that can and will be overcome. I have no doubt that some days I will be incapacitated and unable to write, however I intend to write as much as I can, whenever I can," Raimondo said.
Raimondo urges people to support his life's work during his time of need because regardless of how his battle against cancer turns out, the military-industrial complex will still need to be exposed and defeated.
