SALT LAKE CITY — The Church has received a heartwarming outpouring of get-well wishes for President Gordon B. Hinckley, a Church spokesman said today.
Dale Bills said that President Hinckley, leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is resting comfortably in a Salt Lake City hospital after undergoing surgery earlier this week. He is expected to resume his normal duties soon.
Following a routine medical
screening, President Hinckley was found to have cancerous growth in
his large intestine. The diseased portion of the intestine was
successfully removed through a laparoscopic procedure.
