Just to compound the woes of everyone involved, it appears departing Yahoo! CEO was diagnosed with cancer last week.
Earlier today, the Wall Street Journal revealed
that outgoing Yahoo! CEO Scott Thompson was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer last week, obviously hastening his decision to renounce his role at the company.
It appears Thompson started telling board members and senior executives at Yahoo! of the diagnosis on Friday but had wished to keep this separate from his 'bio' problems.
iTWire would like to take this opportunity to wish Scott Thompson a speedy recovery at this difficult time.
