Atlanta United/Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank declared cancer free

MLS: Atlanta Announcement Kevin D. Liles-USA TODAY Sports

We have some great news out of Atlanta today! Just one month after announcing he was receiving treatment for prostate cancer, Atlanta United FC and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he is now cancer free Thursday afternoon while speaking at the Georgia Technology Summit at the Cobb Galleria in northwest Atlanta.

According to the AJC, Blank will be receiving regular check-ups to ensure the cancer does not come back.

A month ago, Blank received surgery as treatment and will aim to continue his active lifestyle. The entire staff at Dirty South Soccer are relieved to hear this news and wish Uncle Arthur a happy and healthy life for years to come.
