I heard this on the radio today, I'm finding it hard to believe. You do lose a lot of weight when you are sick so I do not know where this speculations are coming from. If that would be the case they would've announced a press release given that this could potentially affect Apple's stocks!

So I'm taking this with a grain of salt for now

It's not hard to believe, he's been unhealthy for a long time.

Not surprising. The 5 year survival for pancreatic cancer patients is at best 1%. Beyond 10 years? None.

It's a sure thing that it's not a good source but it's easy to believe that job's isn't going for the best and might lose against this one. One this one I say, would be hard for the IT world. I may hate apple but job is a man of vision and...and that's about it.

Haha true, it is the National Enquirer. That being said though, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a cancer relapse down the road.

I did my co-op placements in school at cancer centers. We treated nearly every pancreatic patient as terminal cases. From my observations after treatment, they tend to come back with metastatic spread to their liver or lungs.
