John Farnham’s family says Aussie singer has made full recovery from recent chest


Miracle for John Farnham as he makes a ‘full recovery’ from the chest infection that sent him to hospital

The family of John Farnham has provided a hopeful update on Aussie legendary singer’s health weeks after he was rushed to hospital.

The 73-year-old was admitted to hospital in late March as he battled a chest infection.

The latest health scare came seven months after Farnham underwent major surgery to remove a cancerous growth in his mouth.

The You’re The Voice singer has since made a full recovery from the chest infection and is now ‘comfortable’ as he continues ongoing treatment as his wife Jill and sons Rob and James thanked doctors for his care.

‘We’re pleased to say that John made a full recovery from a recent chest infection in late March which required hospitalisation,’ a statement released on Monday night read.

‘He is now comfortable and continues to receive ongoing treatment and rehabilitation care.

‘The family would like to reiterate their appreciation and deepest respect for all the medical staff that have attended to John over the past eight months and the many thousands of kind messages that (have) been received from across Australia and the world.’

Farnham underwent a grueling 12-hour surgery by 26 surgeons in August to remove a cancerous tumour from his mouth and part of his jaw.

Farnham was in intensive care for more than a week following his surgery.

He only discovered he had the cancerous growth in his mouth after his wife insisted on taking him to the doctor for a check up.

The update comes days out from a premiere of a documentary about Farnham’s life.

John Farnham: Finding the Voice will hit cinemas next week with the premiere to be held in Sydney this Thursday night.

The biopic tells the untold story of Farnham’s life from the quiet suburbs of Melbourne to early pop fame in the 1960s, the incredible highs and lows that followed to his record-breaking success after the release of the Whispering Jack album in 1986.
