John Farnham is currently in stable condition in the intensive care unit of a Melbourne hospital, where he is expected to remain for some time while he recovers from his 12-hour marathon surgery.

The surgery involved reconstructive surgery as part of Farnham’s jaw had to be removed to remove a cancerous tumor in his mouth.

The news that the You’re The Voice singer has been diagnosed with cancer sparked a wave of love and well-wishes from fans around the world.

His son’s Father’s Day post also drew a plethora of supportive comments, including from mum Jillian, who posted four love heart emojis under his message.

“Sending best wishes to the family,” wrote another Facebook follower.

Following Farnham’s surgery, his family released a statement updating fans of his condition.

“John remains in stable condition in intensive care following the removal of a cancerous tumor in his mouth on Tuesday,” the statement said.

“He is awake and responding well to the care he is receiving.”

Farnham’s family thanked the public for the countless messages of support they had received since the announcement.

“The Farnham family would like to recognize and thank everyone for their continued messages and well wishes that have been shared over the past week,” they said.

“It really lifts our spirits knowing everyone is thinking of John.”

Given the nature of Farnham’s surgery, it’s unclear if he will ever sing or perform live again.

“Certainly now it has to be said that the probability (of it occurring) is even lower,” said entertainment reporter Peter Ford after the mammoth operation.

A website has been set up for fans to send congratulations to the singer.

“As John is not active on social media, and with the consent of the Farnham family, this website has been set up to allow fans to write and send messages of love and support to John,” the website said in a statement.

“These messages will be saved and shared with John and family for them to read when the time is right.”
