General Hospital News: What’s Next For John?
Back in September, John took to his Twitter account to explain to his fans what’s been going on these last several months for him. He started off by saying that he wanted to give everyone an update as to why he’s taking a break from General Hospital.
John said, “And here it is. So last December, of ’22, I was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. Over the past many months, I’ve had three bone marrow biopsies, many chemo treatments, I have another one coming up in a couple of weeks, and I’m closing in on a blood stem cell transplant. I’ve been working with some wonderful people at Be The Match to find a potential donor on their registry. If it’s possible and you would consider being a donor, joining their registry, for not just me but thousands and thousands of other people who are in need of a donor, go to bethematch.org/matchformac.”
Luckily, John did update his fans and said that he did find a bone marrow match. Watch this space as there is more to come.
