Jared Kushner, former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and one of his most trusted advisers, revealed in an upcoming memoir that he was diagnosed with cancer while working in the White House.

The New York Times obtained an excerpt of Kushner’s new book “Breaking History: A White House Memoir,” which is set to be released in late August.

“On the morning that I traveled to Texas to attend the opening of a Louis Vuitton factory, White House physician Sean Conley pulled me into the medical cabin on Air Force One,” Kushner wrote.

Kushner wrote that Conley told him,  “‘Your test results came back from Walter Reed. It looks like you have cancer. We need to schedule a surgery right away.’”

Kushner told Conley to not tell anyone about the diagnosis, “especially my wife or my father-in-law,” presumably because it could cause issues with his role serving the administration.

Kushner said that the cancer was caught early but a large portion of his thyroid still had to be removed.

A doctor “concluded that I needed surgery to remove an unusual growth in my thyroid, and we scheduled the operation for the Friday before Thanksgiving,” Kushner wrote. “That way, I would miss the least amount of time in the office. My absence might even go unnoticed. That’s how I wanted it.”

“This was a personal problem and not for public consumption,” he continued. “With the exception of Ivanka, Avi, Cassidy and Mulvaney, I didn’t tell anyone at the White House — including the president.”
