But in recent weeks, Mr. Jobs has reassured several people that he
is doing well and that four years after a successful operation to
treat a rare form of pancreatic cancer, he is cancer free.
People who are close to Mr. Jobs say that he had a surgical
procedure this year to address a problem that was contributing to
a loss of weight. These people declined to be identified because
Mr. Jobs had not authorized them to speak about his health.
And that’s the end of that, thankfully.
