The Most Rev. Michael Curry, the Black Episcopalian bishop who spoke in May at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, announced he will undergo surgery for prostate cancer next week.

In a July 25 letter addressed to his “Friends in Christ,” Curry said he was diagnosed a few months ago during an 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.
