Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs battled pancreatic cancer in 2004 by undergoing "Whipple surgery," which successfully removed the tumor in his pancreas. His health continued to fail over the following years and he underwent a liver transplant in April 2009. He died on Oct. 5, 2011, due to complications from a relapse of his cancer.
