National Enquirer says Steve Jobs has weeks to live, video confirms his trip to cancer center
According to a story in the National Enquirer, Apple CEO Steve Jobs may have only 6 weeks to live. The tabloid quotes a critical care physician from Boca Raton Florida who studied photographs of a frail and gaunt looking executive as he walked out of the Stanford Cancer Center. Dr. Samuel Jacobson told the Enquirer, "The poor guy! Judging from these photos, he is close to terminal. I would say he has six weeks." Doctor Gabe Mirkin, board certified in four specialties, concurred. After looking at the same set of photos, he said, "He definitely appears to be in the terminal stages of his life (judging) from these photos."

The Apple co-founder was photographed entering and exiting the Stanford Cancer Center, the same place where Patrick Swayze received treatment for his pancreatic cancer. We recently reported that Jobs was receiving additional treatment at the center. According to the Enquirer article, the type of pancreatic cancer that the Apple executive is allegedly stricken with is called a neuroendocrine tumor which is a slower moving cancer than the one that took the life of Patrick Swayze in 2009 and Michael Landon in 1991. But only 4% of patients stricken with any form of pancreatic cancer live longer than five years.

We can only hope that the treatments that Mr. Jobs is receiving are working.

Video exadgerated! You can totaly see that the frame surronding Steve was intentionaly slowed down to make it look like he was stuggling to walk...not as bad as they are reporting.

Hope he survives though, although it just goes to show you that money can't buy you health. That's why i'm poor, i'm more immune to things...also poor because i own an iphone, thanks Steve!

It was posted on Drugereport.com several days ago. The link to the full speed video clearly shows his equilibrium is a bit off.

I wish him nothing but the best, and while I see the appeal of people trying to track such high-profile individuals, catching him just as he's departing treatment is a shot below the belt IMO.

Yeah that would make sense if the whole shot was slowed but you can see the woman getting into the car at full speed and the biker going by at full speed. Therefore the shot isn't "exaggerated". You're just an idiot. The shot is legit. Sorry to break the bad news.

The NE breaks a lot of big stories. They broke the Jon Edwards story and were right about all of it. Other newspapers ignored the story and did NO investigation even though they had the same facts the NE had to start with. National Enquirer was nominated for frickin' Pulitzer. Laugh all you want morons...

I like how you credit Steve with all the work burdened by his employees. Don't thank him thank apple and its employees. He only builds the vision and it is executed by people who make far less than he does. People seem to think it is all about the CEO and forget about the people who really do the work. Like Woz who in my opinion deserves a long and happy life over Steve seeing as he has done more for humanity and employees than Steve ever has.

Some of us are born leaders, some followers. One needs the other and vice versa. But this is about Steve, not his employees. Reality is, it is the leaders that get the limelight, not the subordinates. That's just how it is. But leaders, are more destined to do greater things than followers. Apple made a comeback and survived because of Steve's brains, not because employees went to work Mondays through Fridays.

Steve hasnt innovated anything. Never has. Hes a business man. The Woz was the true innovator for Apple in the beginning. Now he just has a round table of nameless grunts that do the innovating for his company.

You do not know Steve for you to say that he is just a businessman. Do you know where Steve went to college and what his credentials are? I don't think you do. I suggest you research his educational background first before you make some silly comments that he is just a businessman.

@Turd -- you have no effing idea what you're talking about. You have no concept of what it takes to build a company like Apple. Like Pixar. Your death will be a positive when it happens.

Apple wants all the news that is buzz worthy, but nothing else. Investors want to know if he's going to die because it affects the value of the stock. End of story. Nobody cares otherwise. It's a company. With stocks. The value is tied to him. If he dies it drops. Do you want to lose money on your stocks because of a fake news embargo because the news isn't good? Grow up.

I hate it when people say "nobody cares", yet they read and make comments about it. You care. Because if you really don't, you will not waste even a second reading and commenting here. Apple's stocks are unaffected by Steve's health according to a WSJ article that I read. Apple's stock value kept on increasing. Steve won't live forever, and he's not dumb not to mentor whoever his worthy successors are.

Grow up, not just yet... Give the man the respect that he deserves. If he wishes to make his condition known then he would tell the public. If not, respect it. This is between him, his family and friends.

Stock wise, the company will not fail. They make a good product and will continue to make it. He took a leave of apscense not to long ago and the company did fine and stocks did not fall.

Honestly, this is just irresponsible reporting...
Also, why would it be a big deal if he goes to cancer center... if you've had cancer, don't you need to go get checked out to make sure it isn't back?

I think this is really inappropriate by the enquirer and by phonearena to even report this. Leave the guy alone. When God calls him then he'll go. Btw applesauce if you don't care, don't post but to say so what to someone possibly having weeks to live is just disrespectful.

That's why Steve said that readers need more news reporters and less bloggers. This is a blogsite.

Totally on board with Tre-nitty. The freaking National Enquirer is a trash rag that has someone dying every week. Phone Arena is not a gossip site. If Mr. Jobs and his spokespeople haven't announced it, respect his privacy. We can argue Apple products all day long. I pray for his health, and wish his and all cancer patients desires to fight this in peace be observed.

I'v met Woz at CES talk about a very nice guy, he was playing around with all the newest tech but I guess others thought he was there to steel ideas lol! non the less I'd love to see him as the new CEO I believe he would suggest Apples ideas to people instead of pushing the thought that only Apple should do things or be a specific way with people Ex the Iphone commercials they all start with the same idea " only the Iphone " or " the most this or that" we all should be given the choice of what we believe is better instead of forcing the belief of perfection at our disposal. Jobs if he's really sick then most likely he might not make it Its very rare people with cancer do but if he does then good after all sick or not we're all on borrowed time.

While it is certainly bad that this makes " News". Ifeel for him, and his family if it is indeed true.


I work in EMS, so I see death, and dieing often. Often we use humor ( or atleast what is funny to me) to deal with it.

So, I hear apple will have a limited release of headstones....

if he is really dying there would be someone accompanying him and even opening his door. he could have just come out of a grocery or a restaurant. finally, leave him alone. go bother lyndsey lohan or paris hilton or those kardashans, they would love it. leave steve jobs alone and let him rest.

So, you're saying you care what happens to Steve because your shares may drop, but question other's humanity?

Or was it just an excuse to tell everyone you have money?

It's the National Enquirer, has anyone ever believed anything they've said? And what kind of doctor diagnoses someone from a photo? And a photo that's on the blurry side as well? And if he's walking funny that's probably because he's probably loaded on some sort of pain killer.

Please provide the link where it says their stock price won't be affected when he dies. You can't. It's not true and no reputable source is saying that. Please provide the article so we can decide. I don't expect a response lol.
