2003年,苹果的乔帮主被诊断出胰腺癌。这种病患在第一年的生存几率仅有20%。据ABC新闻报道,在得知诊断结果之后,他对自己的健康状况一直含糊其辞,直到2004年第一次手术之后才对外公布病情,还有多位大名鼎鼎的CEO在诊断出癌症后,做出了同样的选择,其中还包括神巴菲特。

Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs , announced Tuesday that he has recently been diagnosed with lymphoma. Blankfein, who said he will continue to work as he receives treatment, is not the first company executive to make that difficult decision. Here are five others.

1. Andy Grove, Intel
Grove worked at Intel since its inception in 1968, according to the company’s website. He served as CEO from 1987 to 1998, president from 1979 to 1997, and Chairman of the Board from 1997 to 2005. Grove was diagnosed with cancer in 1995 and wrote an essay about his experience—”Taking on Prostate Cancer“—that was published in Fortune Magazine in May 1996. His doctor informed him that he had a “moderately aggressive” tumor in his prostate, for which he received treatment in the form of hormones, high doses of implant radiation, and external radiation. It was an aggressive treatment that lasted 28 days, during which he continued to work at Intel. A typical day started with a hospital appointment at 7:30 a.m. He would then go straight to work, leaving at 4 p.m. for an hour-long nap, and then complete his workday from home. He was able to beat his disease and continue working at the company. Today, many consider him to be a legend and a role model for how to lead a business.

2. Robert Benmosche, AIG
Benmosche came out of retirement in 2009 to lead the insurance company through the financial crisis, when it received a significant government bailout. In October 2010, less than a year back at the job, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He received aggressive treatment while continuing to work at the company. Under his leadership, AIG was able to fully repay a government bailout by 2012—a task that not many thought could be accomplished. He planned to re-retire at the end of 2014. CNN reported that his plans accelerated when his doctor told him in May 2014 that he only had 9 to 12 months to live. Peter Hancock took over as CEO on Sept. 1, and Benmosche stayed on in a consulting role. He passed away on Feb. 27, 2015.

3. Steve Jobs, Apple
Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, which has only a 20% survival rate through the first year. He was always very vague about his health since the time he learned about his diagnosis and didn’t reveal it publicly until after his first surgery in 2004,according to ABC News. Jobs wrote an email to Apple employees saying that the surgery was successful. His health became a topic of discussion in 2006, and then again in 2008 when people began to notice that Jobs was getting very thin. The New York Times reported that it was not life-threatening, and not a cancer relapse, but was “more than a ‘common bug.” Jobs took a medical leave from the company in 2009 to receive a liver transplant, and then returned to work after recovering from his surgery. He took another medical leave in January 2011, and supposedlywent to Switzerland to receive treatment that was not approved in the U.S. He remained on as CEO during that time and was involved in all major strategic decisions that were made at the company. In August 2011, he sent another email to the company saying that was stepping down because his health has made it impossible for him to meet expectations as CEO. He died just a few months later on Oct. 5.

4. Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway
Buffett was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2012, and was lucky enough to have caught it early. His first week following his diagnosis was business as usual. He and his doctors decided on radiation treatment. Many were surprised by this course of action. Reuters spoke to various experts on the subject who said that active surveillance, otherwise known as “watchful waiting,” is just as viable an option when the disease is still at Stage I, especially for an 81-year-old. Buffett wrote a letter to shareholders to inform them of his situation and let them know that he would be starting a two-month treatment in mid-July of that same year, and ensured them that he would let them know if there was any change. The New York Times reported that his treatments ended the following September. According to the Washington Post, there was no significant change in Berkshire Hathaway’s stock price during this time, suggesting that investors were not worried that his condition would affect how the company is run.

5. Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan
Dimon announced in July 2014 that he had beendiagnosed with throat cancer. He added that it was treatable and that he would remain at the company as CEO, a decision of which the board said it was “totally supportive.” He has been CEO of JP Morgan since 2005 and chairman since 2006, and was one of the few CEOs to keep his job following the financial crisis. Investors feared his leadership would be compromised, and shares in the company fell immediately after his announcement. He told the Wall Street Journal: “I took naps when I had to, went home early, and there were days when I was in treatment all day long.” His treatment lasted 8 weeks, and he would typically go into work after his morning appointments. Just five months after he announced his diagnosis, he was able to announce that he was cancer-free. Shares in the company immediately went up and he went back to working full time.(Fortunechina)


 高盛公司CEO劳埃德·布兰克芬宣布,他最近被诊断出淋巴癌。布兰克芬表示,在接受治疗的同时,他将继续工作。不过,他并不是第一位做出这种艰难决定的公司高管。还有以下这5位高管同样选择了带病工作。

1. 安迪·格鲁夫,英特尔公司
英特尔官网显示,格鲁夫从英特尔成立之初便一直在该公司工作。1987年至1998年,他担任英特尔CEO,1979年至1997年担任总裁,1997年至2005年出任董事长。1995年,格鲁夫被诊断出癌症。他在1996年5月的《财富》杂志上发表了一篇文章《与前列腺癌的抗争》,透露了自己的病情。医生告诉他,他的前列腺上有一个“中等侵袭性”肿瘤。他接受的治疗包括激素,高剂量的植入物放射和体外放射。这种积极治疗持续了28天,在此期间,他坚持在英特尔工作。他每天早上7:30到医院接受治疗,之后直接去上班,下午4点离开公司休息一个小时,然后在家完成当天的工作。他最终战胜了病魔,并继续在该公司工作。如今,许多人都将这位传奇人物奉为领导公司的榜样。

2. 罗伯特·本默切特,美国国际集团
2009年,已经退休的本默切特重新出山,带领这家刚刚获得一大笔政府救助资金的保险巨头度过了金融危机。2010年10月,重回工作岗位不足一年的本默切特,被诊断出肺癌。他一边接受积极治疗,一边坚持在公司工作。在他的领导下,美国国际集团终于在2012年之前还清了政府救助资金,完成了这项被许多人视为不可能完成的任务。他本计划在2014年底再次退休。但据CNN报道,在2014年5月,医生告诉本默切特,他只有9至12个月的寿命,这迫使他提前退休。9月1日,彼得·汉考克担任CEO,本默切特留在公司任顾问一职。他在2015年2月27日去世。

3. 史蒂夫·乔布斯,苹果公司
2003年,乔布斯被诊断出胰腺癌。这种病患在第一年的生存几率仅有20%。据ABC新闻报道,在得知诊断结果之后,他对自己的健康状况一直含糊其辞,直到2004年第一次手术之后才对外公布病情。乔布斯给苹果公司的员工写了一封电子邮件,宣布手术非常成功。2006年,乔布斯的健康状况成为各界讨论的热点,2008年,乔布斯的体重大幅下降,他的身体健康再次引起关注。《纽约时报》报道称,乔布斯的病情不会危及生命,也并非癌症复发,但“并不是‘常见的小毛病’。”在2009年休病假期间,乔布斯接受了肝移植,从手术中恢复后便重新回到工作岗位。2011年1月,乔布斯再次宣布休病假,随后可能前往瑞士接受在美国未获批准的治疗。在此期间,他依旧担任苹果公司CEO,并参与了公司多项重大战略决策的制定。2011年8月,乔布斯向公司全体员工发了另一封电子邮件,宣布辞职,因为健康状况导致其无法完成CEO的职责。辞职几个月后,乔布斯于10月5日撒手人寰。

4. 沃伦·巴菲特,伯克希尔-哈撒韦公司
2012年4月,巴菲特被诊断出前列腺癌,幸运的是尚处早期。确诊之后的第一周,他仍像往常一样工作。他和医生决定进行放射治疗。许多人对这种做法感到意外。路透社曾与多位专家讨论过这个问题,对于早期癌症,尤其患者已经81岁,积极监测或者“观察等待”也是一种可行的方案。巴菲特在给股东的信中介绍了自己的病情,表示将在同年7月中旬接受两个月的治疗,并向股东们保证会及时告知病情变化情况。《纽约时报》报道称,巴菲特在9月份结束了治疗。据《华盛顿邮报》报道,在此期间,伯克希尔·哈撒韦公司的股价没有太大变化,这意味着投资者并不担心巴菲特的病情会影响这家公司的日常运营。

5. 杰米·戴蒙,摩根大通
2014年7月,戴蒙宣布自己被诊断出患有喉癌,并补充说这并非不治之症,他仍将担任公司CEO。对于这一决定,摩根大通董事会表示“完全支持”。戴蒙从2005年开始担任摩根大通CEO,2006年起担任董事长,是少数几位在金融危机之后继续留任的CEO之一。投资者担心他的领导力会受到影响。在他公开病情之后,该公司股价应声下跌。戴蒙对《华尔街日报》表示:“我会在需要的时候小睡一会儿,提前回家,有时候我需要一整天接受治疗。”他的治疗持续了8周,在此期间,他通常会在上午接受完治疗后开始工作。就在宣布确诊结果5个月之后,他就声称自己已经痊愈。摩根大通的股票随即上涨,他也重新把全部时间投入到工作当中。(财富中文网)
