Christian Broadcasting Network founder Pat Roberson is recovering after suffering a stroke and is expected to make a full recovery, the network wrote on its website Saturday.

Robertson was taken to a stroke center near Virginia Beach, Va., around noon Friday. Minutes after receiving the clot-busting drug tPA, the 87-year-old Robertson had mobility in his limbs and was cognizant.  

"We encourage everyone to be aware of the symptoms of stroke and also be aware of the location of the nearest stroke center," said Gordon Robertson, Pat’s son and CEO of The Christian Broadcasting Network.

"Stroke kills over 140,000 people in the USA every year and is the leading cause of serious long-term disability," Robertson continued. "Awareness of the onset of symptoms and then rapid treatment is the key to recovery. We cannot express our thanks enough to the medical team that treated my father."
