LA CARDINAL GIVEN CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH

          LOS ANGELES (CWNews.com) - Cardinal Roger Mahoney of Los Angeles was declared cancer-free on Thursday by doctors four days after surgery to remove a cancerous prostate gland.

          The cardinal was released from USC/Norris Cancer Center in Los Angeles, where he had undergone surgery on Monday. He encouraged all men to have regular physical examinations and prostate cancer detection tests, which he credited for his recovery.

          Cardinal Mahoney's surgeon, Dr. Donald Skinner, said: "His case represents a prime example of the benefits of early detection and treatment. We encourage all men and women to use the Cardinal's case as inspiration for undergoing regular physical examinations, as we believe the best treatment for cancer comes from early detection."
