He’s not attending General Convention, but Bp. J. Jon Bruno of Los Angeles had good news to share in a phone call broadcast to the House of Bishops meeting in Indianapolis. The L.A. Times reports:
Episcopal Bishop J. Jon Bruno, the head of the six-county Los Angeles diocese, generated applause, laughter and whistles this week when a telephone call was broadcast during a bishop’s convention in Indianapolis.
In early May, Bruno announced in an open letter that he had been diagnosed with leukemia and was undergoing aggressive treatment, but on Thursday, he told the bishops that he was “doing fabulous,” according to the Episcopal News.
“We’ve gone from what one doctor said was a hopeless case to a complete remission,” he told the bishops. “I’ve been cleared of leukemia.”
He was hospitalized in May but put out a letter upon his release detailing his recovery and subsequent hospital visits.
“As I write this letter, my physician is telling me I am in complete remission and the treatment plan described above is being done to ensure there will not be a recurrence of my cancer,” he wrote.
