One year later, NewsChannel 11 main anchor Abner Euresti gives an update on his fight against Prostate Cancer.
Abner Returns to Anchor Desk On Thursday
It's been a month since Abner announced on the air that he had prostate cancer and would need surgery to remove the prostate.
The surgery was a success. Now, after a few weeks of recovery, we checked in on Abner at his home Monday evening and found that he is ready to come back to work and thankful that his NewsChannel 11 family includes all of you at home.
This Thursday, on NewsChannel 11 at 5, Abner and his doctor will pull up a chair in our Healthwise segment to talk about the importance of finding prostate cancer early. Then, Abner will join me on the set for NewsChannel 11 at six.
When I asked Abner if he is excited about his return to the anchor desk, he joked "I'm kind of nervous actually...because you need so much help!"
Well, I speak for the entire newsroom when I say we are very excited about Abner's return on Thursday.
