As most everyone knows by now Last Friday John had stroke like symptoms while at home as was taken to New Hanover Medical Center in Wilmington. After an MRI, a mass was found on his brain and he was scheduled for surgery on Sunday the 26th. During the surgery the mass was not removed ( because of some concerns of the surgeon) and a biopsy was done on the mass. The biopsy was not good and is a type of cancer called Glioma. They operated again on Wednesday and was able to remove most of the mass but not all of it.
