Apple CEO Jobs Has Surgery To Remove Cancerous Tumor
Sunday August 1, 11:45 PM EDT
NEW YORK -- Steve Jobs, chief executive of personal computer maker Apple Computer Inc. (AAPL) and animation studio Pixar Animation Studio (PIXR), underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his pancreas over the weekend, Monday's Wall Street Journal reported.
The surgery was successful and Mr. Jobs will return to work in September, an Apple spokeswoman said.
Mr. Jobs, 49 years old, disclosed the news about his surgery in a memo that he sent to staffers at Apple, Cupertino, Calif., on Sunday. In the memo, Mr. Jobs told Apple employees that he had a rare form of pancreatic cancer, called islet cell neuroendocrine tumor, which can be cured by surgery if removed in time. Mr. Jobs's tumor was diagnosed in time, he said, and he won't require any chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
Mr. Jobs, who co-founded Apple in the 1970s, said in the memo that he will take August off, returning to work in September. During his absence, Tim Cook, who heads up operations, sales and Macintosh hardware at Apple, will run the computer maker's day-to-day operations.
