Local Illinois anchor announces on live TV that he has only months to live.

A television news anchorman fighting brain cancer in Illinois told viewers he has only four to six months to live, but he hopes to work as long as he can.

During a newscast on Thursday, Dave Benton told viewers of WCIA-TV in Champaign that doctors recently told him that his brain tumor is too large for surgery or radiation.

The 51-year-old says he’ll try a new treatment to slow the tumor’s growth, but that his goal is to add ‘a few more days and make them the best they can be.’

Benton is a born-again Christian and said on-air that he believes he’s in God’s hands and knows that he will take care of the days ahead.

He thanked his viewers for their support in the emotional broadcast and says he wants to make the most of his final days.
