The Sun: The beloved priest, who is in charge of the US Episcopalian Church, was diagnosed a few months ago meaning he would have likely known about his condition while he was at the wedding. Curry told members of his church that he has elected to have his prostate surgically removed adding that “the prognosis looks very good and quite positive.”
His statement read: “A few months ago, through my annual physical, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
“After a variety of tests, consultations, and conversations with my wife and daughters, I decided on a surgical treatment course.
“On this coming Tuesday, July 31, I will have surgery to remove the prostate gland.
“I am happy to say that the prognosis looks very good and quite positive.
“I have spoken with several others who have gone through this, and who have offered both encouragement and helpful advice.
“I will be in the hospital for at least a day, then at home to recuperate.
“I’ve been told that four to six weeks is a reasonable time to anticipate.
I plan to resume my duties in early September and I do not anticipate any significant changes in my commitments.
“I am very blessed with a wonderful family, a first-rate medical team, a great staff, dear colleagues and friends, a calling to which I have given my life, and above all a good, great and loving God in whose hands we always remain.
