Announces He Is Battling Prostate Cancer
Blank addressed his health in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
"In December I was diagnosed with a treatable form of prostate cancer.
Over the last several weeks Angie and I have visited a number of expert doctors and hospitals across the country to identify the best treatment options for me.
I have chosen an aggressive approach that will include surgery and the overall prognosis is good.
I'm looking forward to getting this behind me and continuing a very active lifestyle, my upcoming wedding, as well as continued active involvement in our businesses and philanthropic efforts for years to come."
Veteran wide receiver Roddy White was caught off guard by the news but was pleased to learn of Blank's positive outlook.
"Thank God, because I love that man," White told reports "He changed my life. I'm praying for a speedy recovery."
