Elder Perry to Be Treated for Cancer, Elder Scott Hospitalized

Reported by Mormon Newsroom:

Elder L. Tom Perry will begin radiation treatment this morning after being diagnosed with cancer in the thyroid gland. Elder Perry is the second most senior apostle in terms of length of service in the Quorum of the Twelve, and the oldest living apostle.

Elder Richard G. Scott, age 86, was hospitalized last evening due to gastrointestinal bleeding. The bleeding was brought under control and he is resting comfortably. Elder Scott has served in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles since October 1, 1988.

They are grateful for the prayers and kindnesses expressed on their behalf.
