Dear fellow Miltonists,

I've borrowed the news on John Shawcross below from the John Donne 
Society's Forum.  We are all in John's debt one way or another, most 
of us in many ways, and I am sure he would be heartened to hear from us.

Some of you may know that John Shawcross has been diagnosed with 
cancer of the tongue, lungs, and tonsils.  He has had a very difficult 
two months: he was diagnosed at the time when he was moving from his 
house into a nice large apartment in a community which also has 
supportive care. Understandably the dual stress of the move and this 
sad diagnosis has been hard, but John has held up remarkably through 
it all. He has the support of family and dear friends who have been 
helping him through the practical complications of all of this as well 
as emotionally. We are glad to see he still has his spirit, and he is 
handling all of this with his usual dignity.

John is tired from all the treatments and weak from the weight-loss, 
so is limiting phone-calls to those closest to him. But he welcomes 
love and support through emails and especially cards. His email 
address is elea48 at insightbb.com. His mailing address is The Lafayette 
Apt 318, 690 Mason-Headly Rd, Lexington KY 40504
