THE BIG NEWS
July 4th 1983
PRESIDENT REAGAN's ADDRESS TO THE NATION FOURTH OF JULY 1983
Reagan:*Starring at the screen* My fellow Americans on this great Fourth of July where we celebrate our nation's beginnings and the belief of freedom of Liberty I have news that will that you will not to hear in a time like this.
Today while a vist with the fine great medical staff at the White House broke me the news that I Ronald Wilson Reagan was in the early stages of lung cancer. I in a moment of silence was shattered at the thought of having cancer but I carried on and listen and found out that the doctors told me to step down from the Presidency.
I froze and told them how about a compromise I finish out the rest of this term and find a way to treat this illiness.
I told them with all this stress of this job will prob kill me before I could get proper treatment but I don't want to drop out of this job in the middle of a economic boom and most importantly on the Fourth of July.
That is all thank you and God Bless America.
