Former Suffocation guitarist Guy Marchais has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.The disease is a blood cancer that affects the body’s immune system and lymph nodes. A GoFundMe page has been created to help with medical expenses.
“On January 19th, 2018, we found out that Guy Marchais was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a blood cancer affecting the body’s immune system and lymph nodes. This comes just 80 days after his niece was diagnosed with the same exact thing. Although not genetic, lighting struck twice in our family. I’m calling to everyone to donate what you can. Even with health insurance, bills are piling up in the thousands. There are many more tests to be done before starting his treatment plan on February 5th, which includes chemo and possibly radiation. Our family is struggling and could really use your help.”
The campaign is seeking $100,000. So far, $6,500 has been raised in two days.
