Two years ago it was discovered that John had colon cancer. He had colon resection surgery to remove the tumor. It was discovered that cancer was present in two lymph nodes. He subsequently had chemo therapy for six months. On July 1, 2016 he had to go to the emergency room with a bowel obstruction. On July 7th he had surgery to relieve the obstruction. It was discovered that the colon cancer had reoccured and spread to the lining of his abdomen. It is incurable and inoperative . That means chemo for the rest of his life.
