First, I want to start off by asking that we all keep John J. York, aka our beloved Mac Scorpio in our prayers and healing thoughts. General Hospital’s John J. York has a smile that could brighten anyone’s day. His positive outlook and upbeat personality is a gift to himself as well as those who know and follow him. Additionally, York exhibits great strength as he shares with the world of his current medical condition.

Previously, GH Blog shared the news that John J. York, also known as GH’s Mac Scorpio, announced that he’d be taking a hiatus from the ABC daytime drama. Then, shortly after he gave fans something to think about, York returned to social media for the details. That’s when the iconic actor revealed that he was told he has 3-5 years to live. According to General Hospital news and spoilers, his diagnosis lead to a bone marrow search with Be A Match.

Fast forward and York has come forward with a health update. Reportedly, the stem cell transplant is a 100 day process. According to General Hospital news reports, York tells TV Insider the details of what he faces in the coming weeks. He shares, “The first week is an 8-day process of heavy-duty chemo, where I’ll probably lose my hair, and that’s OK,” he told the outlet. “And, you know, there’s just all kinds of issues. I could, I could pass away. I mean, maybe not from the chemo, but when the transplant starts. So after the eight days of these different chemo treatments that they’re doing, they’re basically wiping my body of what I’ve been living with in terms of my blood and DNA and all this stuff for my entire life. They’re wiping that clean and then they’re gonna put new stuff in me from the donor. And that’s going to be the new me.”

John J York Takes His Stem Cell Treatment One Day At A Time

Treatment takes place everyday unless the doctors see positive results from early on. He admits, “that would be wonderful. Then they may say, ‘You don’t have to come in tomorrow, come in the next day. And then we’ll test after that.’ That goes on for 100 days, and I would say the first probably 20 days [after the transplant] are the crucial days,” is what York told news outlet TV Insider.

The 22 year GH actor continued to describe his upcoming challenges with a positive and bright outlook. However, the long, demanding process can take its toll, but York displays the strength to stay the course. Unfortunately, the treatment doesn’t cease after the 100 days. Instead, he faces more testing. Those tests include biopsy and bone marrow aspiration. “I thought I was done doing bone marrow biopsies, but I still have like five bone marrow biopsies out there. Those are just not my favorite things in the world to do,” the actor admitted. For now, he’s taking things “one day at a time.”

General Hospital Blog continues to keep John J. York in our prayers as he faces these health challenges. His smiling face is enough to carry many through their bad days. Let’s shine our smiles on John to bright his too!

We Love GH’s Mac Scorpio!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I mean really, who doesn’t love Mac Scorpio?! Kind-hearted, good looking, funny guy, and a good Father/Uncle! Mac has been around Port Charles for so long… longer than I have been watching GH, but not much. 😉 Mac first arrived in Port Charles in 1991, (I was 9 years old). Mac is well known for his relationship with Felicia Jones played by Kristina Wagner. In more recent years, writers have played with the idea of Mac being romantically involved with PC lawyer, and Mother of 3 beautiful girls, Sam, Kristina, and Molly, Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn). They have been back and forth with Mac and Alexis and it has never really amounted to anything more than awkward set ups by the Davis Girls. Now, to further complicate things, Felicia is back in town and she and Mac have been talking about getting back together. After the death of Georgie, and now Robin’s “death,” Mac really needs some happiness in his life. Who do you all want to see Mac in a romantic relationship with? Should he go back to his old flame Felicia? Or should he start fresh with Alexis?

Not only do we love Mac Scorpio the character, but we love John York himself. He is such a kind man! If you are on Twitter, you will see that he reaches out to fans effortlessly. He is genuine when tweeting and responding to his fans, supports them just as much as we support him and the show. It is a great thing when an actor truly shows appreciation for the support of the fans by reciprocating respect and enthusiasm. I want to give John York a huge THANK YOU from General Hospital Blog for being an amazing actor, keeping Mac awesome, and for supporting the fans and this blog! I look forward to watching his upcoming story lines with the ladies of PC! Follow him on Twitter @JohnJYork
