“He has now been transferred to intensive care and is in stable condition.”

Earlier Tuesday, Farnham’s family made the shocking announcement that the music legend was already in hospital to prepare for a grueling 12-hour operation to remove a tumor.

“We recently discovered that John has a cancerous growth,” the statement said.

“He was admitted to the hospital for surgery and ongoing treatment.”

“Being diagnosed with cancer is something that so many people face every day, and countless others have walked this journey before me,” Farnham, 73, said in a statement.

“The one thing I do know for sure is that we have the best specialist healthcare professionals in Victoria and for that we can all be grateful.

“I know I am.”

Sunrise entertainment reporter Peter Ford said Tuesday that Farnham was “in high spirits” ahead of the surgery and was “joking with the staff.”

Ford said a source has confirmed Farnham’s wife, Jill, and his two sons, Robert and James, are in the hospital with him.

“The family does not want to disclose what the cancer is at this time,” Ford said.

“They have confirmed to me that it is a tumor that needs to be removed, but they do not want to say at this point where it is on the body.”
