Michael Crain (Dead Cross, Retox, Etc.) Diagnosed With Cancer, GoFundMe Launced

Michael Crain (Dead Cross, Retox, etc.) has sadly been diagnosed with a form of cancer called Squamous Cell Carcinoma. He will be beginning treatment this month and a GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help him with medical expenses.

Ipecac Records issued the following statement:

“Many of you know our Ipecac family member Michael Crain (DEAD CROSS, RETOX, CUNTS).

On July 17th he was diagnosed with a form of cancer known as SCC or Squamous Cell Carcinoma after a routine surgery to remove a Bronchial Cyst. Since then, he underwent a bilateral tonsillectomy as well as multiple biopsy’s and tests.

At the end of September, Mike will begin radiation therapy coupled with chemotherapy.

Although the prognosis for his recovery is high, Mike (like so many others with health insurance) is now faced with a depleted savings account and increasing credit card debt just to cover his Kaiser co-payments. We created this GoFundMe page to help offset Mike‘s expenses so he can focus on getting well without financial stress.

Many of you know Michael Crain is a talented musician, but what you may not know is that he is a stellar human being. He is deeply involved in his home community, and can often be found rescuing dogs and people alike. We recognize that these are uncertain times. Taking care of our own is how we fight back. The personal is political.

Let’s keep Michael Crain on the planet for as long as we can.

Sincerely,

The Ipecac Family”

We went in like headfirst and wrote a set and played a bunch of shows and then immediately went to record an album, we were almost done, but our singer left the band. We have a new singer, so we’re re-recording vocals.”

“I’m not allowed to say [who it is] yet. I want to say, I’ve told people but they’re like… He’s kind of an ‘established singer’ and they need an official announcement or something… Let’s just say it’s like a good friend of all of ours so it will be rad once it happens. He’s already recording and we have a label and stuff like that now.”
