Alexis Jones - September 2023
John J. York, one of the stars of the ABC soap opera General Hospital, revealed recently that he is being treated for both myelodysplastic syndromes (or MDS) and multiple smoldering myeloma.
“Over the past many months, I’ve had three bone marrow biopsies, many chemo treatments, I have another one coming up in a couple of weeks, and I’m closing in on a blood stem cell transplant,” York said. “If it’s possible and you would consider being a donor, joining their registry, for not just me but thousands and thousands of other people who are in need of a donor, go to bethematch.org/matchformac,”
“I just want to say thanks for all the support over the years. This isn’t goodbye, this is just, ‘So long.’ I’ll have to take a break [from General Hospital] for at least three, maybe four months, but I’ll be back.”
