ABC7 News anchor Hosea Sanders has announced that he’s taking time off work to have prostate surgery following a diagnosis of prostate cancer as reported on chicagoradioandmedia.com.
The 59-year-old reporter was diagnosed a few weeks ago and has chosen to share his journey to encourage more men to have regular checkups, particularly African-American men who are at a higher risk of developing prostate cancer.
Sanders shared the news on his Facebook page where he says he is very optimistic about his treatment and urges other men to have a simple blood test to check their PSA levels. He also said that his father also suffered from prostate cancer.
