Bishop Rudolph McKissick Jr. has announced he has prostate cancer and he encourages others to get tested, so physicians can catch it and it may not go into a worst stage. Not to often do we hear of black preachers reaching out to help others, most often they die too soon.
According to Black Christian News, McKissick, 47, was diagnosed with stage 2 prostate cancer less than two weeks ago. He is to have surgery in a few weeks, followed by a few more weeks of recovery time.
By chance, no matter what you are diagnosed with, do not forget to get tested, but also have faith in God you will beat the disease. In I Peter 2:24, 'Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.'
In the meantime, we will keep Bishop Rudolph McKissick in our prayers.
