Al Roker is “beyond grateful” for the well wishes he’s received since revealing his prostate cancer diagnosis last week.

Over the weekend, the “Today” show co-host, 66, thanked fans for their support in a video posted to Instagram.

“Oh my gosh, is this not a glorious day or what? Fantastic,” he said in a video showing beautiful scenery and weather. “And it reminds me that I’ve got to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, your support, your well wishes after I announced on Friday that I am battling prostate cancer.”

“With any luck, next week, I’m going to be having prostate cancer surgery and I’m going to tell prostate cancer — to borrow a phrase — you’re fired,” Roker continued, lifting President Trump’s famed phrase from “The Apprentice.”

Roker will be taking time off to undergo surgery to remove his prostate. The beloved weather forecaster said Friday he hopes to return to work in about two weeks.
