Fears for ‘The Voice’ after John Farnham recovers from marathon cancer surgery that shocked Australia

There are fears John Farnham’s decades-long singing career may be behind him after part of his jaw was removed along with a cancerous mouth tumour in a marathon surgery that he’s expected to take a long time to recover from.

The entertainer, who first raced to the top of Australia’s pop charts in 1967, went under the knife for almost 12 hours on Tuesday, cared for by experts from Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, with the procedure performed at a public hospital.

“We are (at) the beginning of a very long journey,” the 73-year-old’s talent manager David Wilson told The West Australian.

In a statement on Wednesday, Farnham’s wife Jill, and sons Rob and James said, “incredible teams of health care professionals … undertook this big job … and have given us a magnificent outcome”.
