John Wilkinson contacted ElvisMatters telling them how he's doing and thanking the fans for their support in these heavy times. Here's an email that John wants to share:
"Hi Peter. Hearing your voice on the phone gave me a much needed boost to my spirits! I've gotten very positive response to my decision to take a year or more off. I'll miss the active participation in the Elvis world, but it's finally time for Johnny to take care of Johnny! The very thought of cancer is scary no matter what kind it is. knowing that you love and care about me so much gives me a lot of strength. I've been through a lot in my life and come out a winner; I expect to do the same with this!"
