The Rev. Robert Schuller, founder of Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, Calif., has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 86-year-old is undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer, which has spread to his lymph nodes.
His daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman, made the announcement during a recent sermon.

In a statement posted online Wednesday at the Hope Center of Christ, doctors said Schuller could live for two years with radiation and chemotherapy.
Schuller launched Hour of Power in 1970. Approximately 10 years later, Schuller’s church completed construction on the Crystal Cathedral.

He resigned from the ministry’s board in 2012, two years after the church filed for bankruptcy.
