Louis Farrakhan To Have Surgery
Oct. 24, 2000
CHICAGO (AP) _ Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan will undergo surgery to repair damage caused by treatment for prostate cancer.
Farrakhan, 67, was diagnosed with cancer in 1991 and initially given hormone treatments. Subsequent radiation treatment produced an ulcerated area that has hemorrhaged, he said.
``With the help of God I'll come through all right,'' he said Monday.
