According to a book yet to be published, which detailed the life of Apple’s founder, Steve Job, the present CEO of Apple Computer, Tim Cook once offered his liver to save the Apple’s founder life when he was dying of cancer in 2009.
The book titled ‘Becoming Steve Jobs‘ is expected to hit the stands on March 24, and was written by authors, Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli. This new biography revealed the period when Tim Cook’ had visited Apple’s founder when he was stricken with cancer and lying on his sick bed in 2009 and offered a part of his liver to save his life. This happened after Cook went for a compatible blood test and found that their blood type matched. The late Steve Job immediately shut down the suggestion, according to the book.
The late founder of Apple Computers was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and eventually underwent a liver transplant in 2009, but died 2 years later when the cancer returned.
Steve Job has been credited as one of the world’s greatest visionary by bringing Apple Computer into the world’s leading computer brand. Since his death in 2011, Tim Cook has also been credited as well for bringing Apple into one of the world’s most innovative company. In 2014, he became the first Fortune 500 companies CEO to come out as a gay, which has not really changed the perceptions of the investors and customers of Apple.
