Get Well Soon...

Steve Jobs just announced he had a rare form of pancreatic cancer, called islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. The surgery went well and he should be back at 1 Infinite Loop in September.

He sent this note to Apple employees...(thanks for the Google mention!)

The far more common form of pancreatic cancer is called adenocarcinoma, which is currently not curable and usually carries a life expectancy of around one year after diagnosis. I mention this because when one hears "pancreatic cancer" (or Googles it), one immediately encounters this far more common and deadly form, which, thank god, is not what I had.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
