The GoFundMe campaign that was launched for Exodus drummer Tom Hunting following his cancer diagnosis has already raised over $80,000. Among the donations was $5,000 from Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett and $1,500 from Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho.
Hunting thanked fans for their support on Facebook:
“Hey all. Tom from Exodus here. Just checking in. It’s April 26th. I’m in Northern California, where we just had six inches of snow fall last night. A little [Paul] Baloff birthday snow action.
Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you, everyone. I’m overcome with gratitude and emotion for the donations and all the love and support. I’m doing okay. I had a treatment a couple of weeks ago. I’m going in for another treatment on Wednesday. So far so good. It’s kind of early in the fight. But I feel like I’m gonna crush this like a bug.
Anyways, thanks again, everyone. I love you guys. And we’ll see you soon. Cheers.”
