I hadn't heard of the band, but I heard this morning as my husband's close friend is a huge fan.

So sad, maybe he can help raise awareness for treatment of this type of cancer and funds for finding new ways to fight it.

...who knows what treatments he will go on.

One of my high school friends has had ``terminal`brain cancer that started out at stage 4, and now he is in stage 1 - it has shrunk so much over the last few years - something doctors did not expect.

He is now back at work full time, and goes for treatments every month in Toronto (takes the train).

I hope he has the same kind of turn around.

My mom died from the same thing. 8 months after her diagnosis. It is so sad. He is so talented!

So sad! My husband's mother died after her lung cancer metastasized to her brain. She was terminal upon diagnosis and only lasted 5 months. It is so horrible how it affects the patient - they do and say things they never would under normal circumstances, they have no idea what is going on and it's so hard on family. I hope for the very best for him. He is fairly young still. Thanks for sharing :(

It's sad, he is still young and is such a talent. The Hip is pretty much the band of Canada. I grew up listening to them as did many others.
