Farnham is rehabilitating after cancer surgery


Australian singing legend John Farnham has been transferred to a rehabilitation facility as he recovers from cancer surgery.

In August, a 73-year-old man underwent a 12-hour operation to remove a cancerous neoplasm from his mouth.

In a statement Thursday, the singer’s family said Farnham’s condition is progressing well and his medical team is pleased with his recovery.

Wife Jill and sons Rob and James said Farnham was moved from intensive care to a general ward a couple of weeks ago.

“Each of these steps means things are moving in the right direction, and for that we are very grateful,” the family said in a statement.

“Our family is very grateful to all the wonderful Victorian medical teams who took such good care of John.

“These results are a credit to their dedication, skill and compassion.”

The family also thanked the thousands of well-wishers who left messages on a website dedicated to Farnham.

“To be surrounded by so much love and support meant the world to all of us. Thank you,” they said.

Before the surgery, Farnham said many people face a cancer diagnosis every day, “and countless others have walked this path before me.”

His diagnosis came three years after he suffered a health scare and was hospitalized with a severe kidney infection.

Farnham shot to the top of the charts with his 1986 album Whispering Jack.

It spawned one of the most famous national anthems, You’re the Voice, and earned Farnham hero status.
