    Default Update on John Rees

    Hi Folks
    Just to let you know that John has been diagnosed with cancer of the lining of his right lung (what Steve McQueen died of) caused by working with asbestos in his twenties. Prognosis is prtetty grim but John has been accepted for surgery to remove the linoing of his lung, part of his diaphragm and the pericardium. This still only gives a life expectancy f two years, but as it is new and very cutting edge research surgery they have only done it on 100 people since they started 5 years ago. John is going into hospital on 6th January and will be in for at least two weeks. We are all hoping and praying that he wil come through and in his words be one of the statisitics that outlive the prognosis.

    We are going to have the best Christmas ever with our kids and grandchild and hope to see you all next season. Thanks to everyone who has been in touch or to see John, the club is as ever a great community.

    Love
    Deborah
