‘The cancer has been removed’: Greg Warmoth’s family provides post-surgery update

ORLANDO, Fla. — Channel 9 anchor Greg Warmoth’s family provided an update on his condition Thursday following a two-hour surgery.


Warmoth announced Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with squamous cell lip cancer and would undergo surgery to remove the cancer.

One of Greg’s three sons, Justin Warmoth, posted on his father’s Facebook page Thursday afternoon, thanking the public for its “continued prayers and support,” adding, “Our family couldn’t be more thankful.”

“Dad just finished his two-hour procedure, and his surgeon told us all of the cancer has been removed,” Justin Warmoth said. “He had a great team at AdventHealth Celebration taking care of him.”

Greg’s wife, Christie Warmoth, told Channel 9 that his stiches will be removed in five days, and over the coming weeks and months, “the nerves will come back to his new lip.”
