John Green’s Health

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 19th, 2007

Daniel Perez’s September 2007 issue of The Bigfoot Times has been published and he has forwarded a copy to me. It contains an extensive interview with Tony Healy about his Yowie research and his new book, The Yowie: In Search of Australia’s Bigfoot by Tony Healy and Paul Cropper, as well as other news items.

Ostman Green

John Green (right) interviews Albert Ostman about Ostman’s 1924 Sasquatch abduction incident in British Columbia.

Also, of much importance for Bigfooters, is this little note Daniel Perez is running. The senior statesman of Sasquatch studies has cancer, according to Perez.

John Green The author of the 1978 standard, Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us, John Green, 80, is fighting prostate cancer, the same thing which took the life of his one time colleague, Rene Dahinden. A reliable source noted Mr. Green has changed his diet and is taking various medications for his illness. We wish him well. – Daniel Perez, Bigfoot Times, September 2007.

All our best goes out to John.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    The words “statesman” and “sasquatch” are not usually found in the same sentence, but for John Green, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
    Our prayers are with you in this battle John.

  2. Ceroill responds:

    You can beat this, John. All of us out here are pulling for you. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve put in over the years.

  3. Lyndon responds:

    Best wishes to you John. Ceroill is right, you can beat this!!

  4. Daniel Loxton responds:

    All the best for John Green, and for his health. If passion and conviction count for anything, he of all people should be one step ahead.

  5. hlw responds:

    Having gone through this the past two years, I know your fears and worries. Know that you can beat it. Best to you John, we wait to hear good things here in the future.

  6. DWA responds:

    I guess it’s inevitable; none of us is getting out of here alive.

    But this was one guy that I wanted to be around when the sasquatch was confirmed.

    So I’m rooting for that all the more – and for John Green to have as many years as possible to enjoy his vindication after it happens.

    Hey, Loren 🙁

    Please tell me this is not true. I am shocked now that I have heard that John Green’s health is getting bad and he has possible cancer. Please keep me definitly informed. 🙁


  8. DARHOP responds:

    Sorry to hear that. Be strong John, hopefully it has been caught fast enough for a full recovery. You will be in my prayer’s. Lost my Dad to the nasty crap in 1979. There has been major steps in treatment since then though. I’m sure you are receiving the best of care. Keep your chin up.

  9. easternbigfoot2 responds:

    Our best wishes are with John. He can pull through this, I know he can. A terrible disease, faith and support do help.

  10. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Hope he manages to pull through 🙁

    Drinking green tea seems to help prevent this kind of thing.

  11. Ole Bub responds:

    Sad news indeed….

    John is in my thoughts and prayers for swift remission.

    live and let live…

    ole bub and the dawgs
