Jill, John Farnham’s wife, was the one who discovered the growth in her husband’s mouth, which ultimately led to a lengthy surgical procedure.
Today, Farnham remains in a stable state in intensive care, despite the fact that doctors worked on him all day yesterday, from 8:00 am until 7:30 pm.
The news that the musician, who is 73 years old, had been diagnosed was what shocked Australians as they awoke yesterday morning.
The family of John Farnham released a statement this morning in which they expressed their utter shock and gratitude at the “amazing surge of support, love, and words” that they had received.
Jill Farnham stated that the cancerous tumour in her husband’s mouth had been successfully removed. “The cancer tumour was located in his mouth,” she said.
Mine and I'm sure all Australian's thoughts and prayers are with John Farnham today. 🙏💙
