It has been confirmed today that Steve Jobs is receiving treatment for cancer in the Standford Cancer Center in Palo Alto, California. RadarOnine confirmed today that it is the same Clinic where Hollywood Actor the Late Patrick Swayze was undergoing chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer last year. What type of illness has yet to be confirmed. Jobs was not forthcoming about the reason he took a medical leave of absence.
Photographs of the 55-year-old Apple CEO were taken on Febuary the 8th outside the clinic and are reported to be published by the The National Enquirer soon.
In one photo, Jobs was getting out of his car a day after he a full day of work at the company’s Cupertino campus. The photos show Mr Jobs looking painfully frail and weak, with his jeans and dark top hanging loosely on his 6ft 2in, thin body.
Jobs has previously withheld information on his health, such as when he was treated for a form of pancreatic cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009, something that worries Apple investors who feel the company’s future rests in his visionary leadership.
The National Enquirer, who broke the news today, talked to critical-care physician Dr. Samuel Jacobson, who said, “Judging from the photos, he is close to terminal. I would say he has six weeks.”
