Fuming Mouth: Frontmann Mark Whelan leidet an Krebs

So könnt ihr ihm helfen.

VON AM 07/12/2021

Es sind leider nicht die besten Nachrichten, die uns da aus dem Lager der Death-Metal-Band Fuming Mouth erreichen. Wie jetzt bekannt wurde, ist Frontmann und Gründungsmitglied Mark Whelan an Krebs erkrankt. Demnach handle es sich dabei um akute myeloische Leukämie.

Die Art von Blutkrebs, an der der Musiker leide, sei eigenen Angaben zufolge glücklicherweise behandelbar und erste Chemotherapiebehandlungen seien bereits Ende letzten Monats in die Wege geleitet worden.

Whelan hierzu:

„Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago. I have acute myeloid leukemia (AML). A type of cancer that is treatable. We’ve already begun the treatment and are working to beat this every day. It will surely be a hard road but I’m ready to face it. Please feel free to reach out, write, or DM any of the fuming mouth pages while I’m going through this. Any kind of love and support is welcome.

We’ve also created a GoFundMe to help with expenses. Please feel free to check out the link below to read more and support. Thank you. We’ll keep you updated with how things are going.

– Mark“

So könnt ihr helfen

Auf dieser GoFundMe-Seite werden derzeit Spenden für die kostenintensiven Behandlungen der nächsten Zeit gesammelt.

Seine Freundin Selena Gavin lässt dabei wissen:

“I am writing on behalf of Mark Whelan, as his partner.

On November 19 2021, Mark was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). This diagnosis came as a shock after a week long stay at Milford Regional Medical Center.

Mark has since been transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, near Fenway in Boston, where he began induction chemotherapy treatment on November 26 2021.

This is just the beginning of Mark’s fight against AML. He will require extensive treatment in the upcoming months while he is hospitalized.

Mark is currently on state healthcare and much of what he will endure for treatment will not be covered by insurance. We are asking for donations to help lessen the massive financial blow of this incredibly devastating news. Anything counts and is deeply appreciated. It is highly unlikely that the goal amount will cover all of his medical bills, so any donation is welcome.

Mark’s treatment will include a bone marrow transplant. This is a procedure that depends on the availability of donors. If you’re able, please consider joining the bone marrow donor registry. It’s free and can help save someone’s life. Find more information here: https://bethematch.org“
