As you remember, Tom Hunting has announced with a statement shared on April 13 that he was diagnosed with cancer in his upper stomach in February and upset the rock world.

In the statement, Tom said: “Today I will be starting treatment for a squamous cell carcinoma. It’s a gastric tumor that was diagnosed in my upper stomach in February.

“I’m making this public to raise awareness for people to pay attention to symptoms of stomach and esophageal issues. If they persist, please go get it checked out.

“I’m not gonna be sheepish talking about it. I feel that if I can help someone with what I’ve learned, or someone out there has information to share with me, it’s a win-win! When you can name the enemy, it’s empowering, and you’re 1 step closer to killing it!

“Ok, you’ve heard the bad news. The good news is he feels great physically! I’m gonna beat this like a fucking snare drum that owes me money!!! I’ve had great doctors and a great support system that is an army in itself. I’m ready for the fight!”

Tom Hunting, April 26, 2021

On 26 April, Tom Hunting made a social media for the first time ever after his cancer diagnosis. He gave information about his current state of health and said he feels okay.

“I just wanted to say thank you everyone – overcome with gratitude and emotion for the donations and support,” Tom said in the social media video [transcribed by MetalCastle.net]. “I am doing okay. I had a treatment a couple weeks ago, and going for another treatment on Wednesday. So far so good. It’s kinda early in the fight but I feel like I’m gonna crash this like a bug. See you soon, cheers!”
