Ever the anchor, Al Roker is offering fans an update on his battle with prostate cancer.
“Relieved to let you all know that my #prostatecancer surgery is done and [I’m] back home,” Roker wrote on Twitter Thursday evening. “[A] big shoutout to everyone at the #josierobertsonsurgerycenter and appreciate all the thoughts and wishes from our viewers and the wonderful care packages from my co-workers. See you all soon.”
The “Today” show co-host, 66, revealed his diagnosis last week on the show and explained that he would be taking time off to undergo surgery.
“It’s a good news-bad news kind of thing,” he explained. “The good news is we caught it early, not great news is that it’s a little aggressive so I’m going to be taking some time off to take care of this.”
Roker immediately received an outpouring of support from both his “Today” show co-stars and fans following the reveal. “We know you will beat this prostate cancer and be back in no time,” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie wrote on social media.
“I’ve got to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, your support, your well wishes,” he said in a video posted to Instagram Nov. 9.
