London:  Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has terminal pancreatic cancer and may live for just six more weeks, a media report said on Thursday.



The 55-year-old Jobs in January announced that at his request, the board of directors granted him a medical leave of absence so that he could focus on his health.

Since then, employees have said Jobs can still be seen at the company's headquarters in California and is also calling all the strategic shots from his home.

Now, new pictures have been published in the tabloid National Enquirer, which suggest things may be worse for the man behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

 The report said Jobs is stricken with pancreatic cancer and may have just six weeks to live.

The new photos show him looking painfully frail and weak, with his jeans and dark top hanging loosely on his six-feet-two-inches, frail body, the Daily Mail reported.

The pictures were not yet available online, but Jobs's weight is said to have dropped from a pre-cancer 175 pounds to 130 pounds now, according to the National Enquirer.

His thinning hair was a sign of the effects of chemotherapy used to treat the disease.

The photos, which were taken Feb 8, showed Jobs going for breakfast with his wife Laurene Powell before heading to the Stanford Cancer Centre in California.

Jerome Spunberg, a doctor, said: 'Mr. Jobs is most likely getting outpatient chemotherapy at Stanford because the cancer has recurred.'

Gabe Mirkin, a physician with 40 years' experience, said: 'He is terminal. What you are seeing is extreme muscle wasting from calorie deprivation, most likely caused by cancer. He has no muscle left in his buttocks, which is the last place to go.'

'He definitely appears to be in the terminal stages of his life from these photos. I would be surprised if he weighed more than 130 pounds.'

Critical care physician Samuel Jacobson also said: 'Judging from the photos, he is close to terminal. I would say he has six weeks.'

A source, who recently saw Jobs, added: 'He is very frail, moving like a weak, feeble old man. He weaves back and forth when he walks, as if he is having trouble keeping his balance, and the pain of every step is evident on his face.'

The Apple CEO, who is worth $6 billion, is currently on his third medical leave, and has battled a rare form of pancreatic cancer for seven years and had a liver transplant in 2009.

An Apple spokesman did not comment on the new photos.

There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men: A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease."

I never know that TB Joshua is God or that he is Jesus Christ. I know that he believe that he is a "Divine Child" but he isn't. All this man got to do is believe on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, be baptized and walk in Faith. But the rich doesn't believe in Faith much less to think that what he has in his body is caused by Sin. Sickness is not of God and so is not in the Body of Christ. Once we believe and exercise our Faith we are heal. It is sad that a man which so many lives in the form of employment depending on him will continue go to the scientist who is telling lies. The lady with the issue of blood uses her faith and was healed. The centurion who has an employee who was sick uses his faith and he was healed. It is time Saints of Christ who are working uses their Faith for their co-workers and bosses. But selfishness is the high order for those who are baptized. Hugs and blessings

Indeed, he does not have to die. I believe in the Power of The Blood of Yeshua[science knows nothing about it]; he can be made whole by His Blood!!

The devil greatest element against GOD'S CHILDREN is fear. Now that this bad news has been reported to him, he will become more afraid and distabilize instead of taking a bold step by running to GOD. The bible said he has not giving us the spirit of fear but of LOVE, POWER AND A SOUND MIND. This cancer is a mirrage if he his willing to accept christ and become born again before using the name of JESUS as a weapon to destroy that cancer. the bible said unto which report will you believe? man or GOD'S report. by his strives we were heal. he has a choice to live and glorify GOD or die with the cancer. I pray at this moment to GOD to enlighten his spiritual eyes and mind of understanding to enable him proclaim JESUS heal and save me.
