Pat Robertson Is Back at Work After Surgery

From Times Wire Reports

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson has reappeared as host of "The 700 Club" on his Christian Broadcasting Network, one week after having surgery for prostate cancer.

Robertson, 72, underwent surgery to remove a cancerous prostate Feb. 17 and returned to work a week later.

"I am profoundly grateful and touched by the thousands of prayers and expressions of goodwill that were made on my behalf by people all across the United States," he said.

"I hope that my example will serve as a reminder to men over 50 to be diligent in early screening for this silent and deadly killer that is affecting hundreds of thousands of men."

Robertson was declared cancer-free after the surgery.
