Farnham Family  

Updated Statement by Jill, Rob and James

We are genuinely overwhelmed by the incredible wave of support, love and messages we have received today from so many people around Australia. This means so much to us as a family. Thank you to everyone for this. John will be blown away.

John has been through an eleven and a half hour surgery in Melbourne yesterday and is now in a stable condition in ICU. The cancer tumour was located in his mouth and it has been successfully removed. There is still a long road of recovery and healing ahead of us, but we know John is up for that task.

Jill, Rob and James:
We are in awe of the incredible teams of health care professionals who have guided us through this very challenging time with such compassion. All of you undertook this big job today and have given us a magnificent outcome. To all the surgeons, doctors, nurses and consultants - thank you one and all so very much.
John will remain in hospital for a period of time for recovery and post operative treatment.

UPDATE: Statement from the Farnham family on John's health by Jill, Rob and James.
John's surgery began at 8.00am this morning and was successfully completed at 7.30pm tonight.
He has now been transferred to ICU and is in a stable condition.

The Farnham family, wife Jill and sons Robert and James have confirmed the sad news of John's cancer diagnosis in a statement:

“We have recently discovered that John has a cancerous growth. He has been admitted to hospital this morning for surgery and ongoing treatment.”

John also released a statement through a PR Agency:

 “Cancer diagnosis is something that so many people face every single day, and countless others have walked this path before me.”

“The one thing I know for sure is that we have the very best specialist healthcare professionals in Victoria, and we can all be grateful for that. I know I am.”

We know everyone will join us in sending John love and support.

John and Glenn  

We are devasted to share the news that the great Glenn Wheatley has died.

He believed in John and was his biggest champion. His passion for John's music was never ending and without Glenn, John would probably not have reached the heights he has. In what has almost become folklore, Glenn mortgaged his home to make the album, Whispering Jack.  

Glenn’s passion for what he did was never ending. He was an ideas man, full of life. Whenever he was knocked down, he dusted himself off and got on with life and reached new heights.

His family was so important to him, he was a husband, father and grandfather. They were so dear to him and he was so proud of them all. He always spoke so lovingly about his family.

Glenn was a warm, passionate, generous and considerate man, intoxicated by life and we will miss him dearly.

I'm Still The Woman is the long awaited studio album by Lisa Edwards, known to us all as one of John's accomplished and dynamic backing singers for several decades.
