On Tuesday, December 18th, 2018 John was taken into the ER for abdominal pain caused by a hernia. While he was there, the doctors ran tests that showed John has cancer. They have diagnosed him with stage 4 renal cell carcinoma, which is cancer of the kidney. He has a large mass on his left kidney that has spread to his lungs. There is a mass on his lung that is perturbing his right shoulder bone and causing some pain.
