Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz announced Wednesday he’s cancer-free following a five-month treatment plan.
In a new video posted on Kurtz’s blog Wednesday, the archbishop said 2019 had been challenging but that his parishioners’ prayers kept him going.
He first announced in July he’d been diagnosed with bladder cancer and spent several months undergoing treatment for it in North Carolina, though he swore on his blog he isn’t changing allegiance to Duke.
“My allegiance with the ACC continues to be Louisville,” Kurtz said.
“I think I thought I’d never get sick,” he said in the video and that his “unique form of cancer” was something that “had to be taken very seriously.”
