An announcement on felixdennis.com which could have interesting repercussions – Dennis is a significant-sized, privately-owned company and any threat to the long-term health of its owner has to put a question mark over the long term health of the business itself. (Although Private Frazer sincerely hopes that Felix will continue to be publishing’s thorn in the side and pain in the backside for quite a while yet.)
Felix has been diagnosed with cancer of the pharynx (throat). Following surgery in an Oxford hospital yesterday, all being well, he should be discharged from hospital within 10 days.
Following a month’s convalescence, Felix will begin a course of further treatment lasting several months. His chances of a full recovery are good.
