Arthur Blank released a statement today announcing he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

"In December I was diagnosed with a treatable form of prostate cancer. Over the last several weeks Angie and I have visited a number of expert doctors and hospitals across the country to identify the best treatment options for me. I have chosen an aggressive approach that will include surgery and the overall prognosis is good. I'm looking forward to getting this behind me and continuing a very active lifestyle, my upcoming wedding, as well as continued active involvement in our businesses and philanthropic efforts for years to come."

It's a very sad piece of news today. Best wishes from all of us at DSS. And certainly all fellow Atlantans wish Arthur Blank a full and speedy recovery.
