Today, the Farnham family shared some positive news, that John had been moved from his hospital in Melbourne, to a rehabilitation facility, after being transferred out of ICU some weeks ago.

“John’s recovery from last month’s surgery for mouth cancer is progressing well,” their statement reads.

“His medical team are very pleased with his progress over the past month. He was moved from ICU and into a general ward a couple of weeks ago. That in itself was terrific progress. This week John has been transferred into a rehabilitation facility. Each of these steps means things are moving in the right direction and for that we are enormously thankful.”

John Farnham’s family set up a website for fans to send their will wishes to the singer (www.weloveyoujohn.com.au). Since it has launched, thousands of messages have been collated and for the family, it has been a great source of comfort and support.

“Our family is so very grateful to all the remarkable teams of Victorian medical professionals who have taken such good care of John,” they have said.

“These outcomes are a credit to their dedication, skills and compassion. We have received many thousands of beautiful messages via the weloveyoujohn.com.au website since it was launched. Being surrounded by this much love and support has meant the world to us all. Thank you.”
