Guy Marchais (Ex-Suffocation, Etc.) Diagnosed With Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

It has been revealed that former Suffocation, Internal Bleeding, etc. guitarist Guy Marchais has sadly been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. You can help him out by donating to his GoFundMe page.

Marchais’ family said the following:

“On January 19th, 2018, we found out that Guy Marchais was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a blood cancer effecting the body’s immmune 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.”
