Falcons owner Arthur Blank has prostate cancer

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank announced he has prostate cancer. Blank, 73, is receiving medical treatment. “In December I was diagnosed with a treatable form of prostate cancer,” Blank said in the statement. “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.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
