Fans were worried when John J. York (Mac) announced back in September that he was taking a “brief hiatus” from GENERAL HOSPITAL, especially when the actor confirmed that it was for medical reasons as he had been diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders.
Thankfully, by the end of the month, York announced that things were looking good as a match had been found and he would receive a blood stem cell transplant. And now, in November, it appears that the big day has finally arrived.
“I hope you’ll all take just a minute today to send some healing thoughts to my friend, John J. York,” Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) shared on social media on Nov. 7. “It’s a big week and we would all appreciate your help. Thank you.”
York reposted his GH co-star and friend’s sentiment and responded: “Thank you, my friend… and to everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers! It’s game time!”
The actor has already received multiple chemotherapy treatments, and the stem cell transplant is another step in treating his blood and bone marrow disorders.
