Ex-Yahoo Chief Told Board He Has Cancer [online.wsj.com]
Before resigning as chief executive of Yahoo Inc. over the weekend, Scott Thompson disclosed to the company's board of directors and several colleagues that he has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, according to people familiar with the matter.
The cancer disclosure by the 54-year-old Mr. Thompson was made late last week, as evidence emerged that appeared to contradict the CEO's assertions that he wasn't responsible for an error in his academic record, one of these people said.
The decision to step down from Yahoo was in part influenced by Mr. Thompson's cancer diagnosis, said this person.
