Behemoth - Bone Marrow Donor Found


You all remember that back in August Nergal was diagnosed with leukemia. Now, the Behemoth frontman has issued the following update straight from the hospital:

"I'm still in the hospital but in quite a good shape so I write to let you know about my health and the further stages of treatment.

I've been through four planned chemotherapies and have stayed in hospital for over 3 months now. I've gone through the whole therapy smoothly, though I also had a couple of difficult moments. All this means I finish the stage of pharmacological treatment and I am about to start the irradiation and then the marrow transplant. Yes, we've found a donor! Having searched for months, the fundation has found a person whose genotype is identical to mine.

It would have been difficult to achieve if it wasn't for the support of so many people. Most of all, I want to express my admiration for Dorota - my wonderful and devoted fiancée. She did everything she could to help me and many other people, regardless of adversities and comments which were often unfair. Your help is invaluable! Thank you! I love you.

On behalf of me and all other people ill I thank everyone who registered in the bone marrow bank regardless of origin, skin colour or religion. The concerts for charity have been organised all over the world and people of show business, bands and, most of all, the fans got deeply involved. You are beyond great! One of you made my transplant possible, but remember, your attitude may save many others in need. So I appeal to everyone: don't stop the madness! The march for victory continues!"

It's really a great news...just finished 5 months of chemotherapy and irradiation because of a lymphoma, and I know how it feels to have great people around you...don't like Behemoth very much, but know what music can mean to one when he is in an hospital...so let's hope everything will be well!

I really like this news. The last paragraph was very good. I'm glad that Adam Darski has had a match found for his leukemia.

Not expected or strange from him, but respect! Maybe sometimes we confuse the artist with the human or maybe they themselves sometimes do so as well... Anyway, best wishes of recovery. And I wonder how much this experience would change his music.

I listen behemoth since the demo from the pagan vastlands and at that moment(arise of black/pagan bands 1994) I heard their power, will to destroy the indiference/prejudice of mainstream world, with true black metal so your regard always comes if you did something privately or socially.
