Steve Jobs On Medical Leave

According to Steve himself, Apple's board of directors granted him a medical leave of absence. There is no word as to how long he will be gone, Apple COO Tim Cook will take over day to day stuff during his leave. In 2004 Jobs beat Pancreatic Cancer then later, Steve had a liver transplant and made a full recovery in 2009.

Note from Steve Jobs to his team:

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.

Apple's CEO is 55 years old and has proved to be a survivor...praying for the best and that his health condition returns back to normal.
