Leeway’s Eddie Sutton battling lung cancer; GoFundMe launched
Eddie Leeway (aka Eddie Sutton), frontman of NYHC legends Leeway, has sadly been diagnosed with lung cancer, and a GoFundMe was launched to help with medical bills. It reads:
This campaign is a beginning to help Eddie cover some of his costs and expenses as he fights Stage 3 Adenocarcinoma. This is a form of lung cancer that can be aggressive and spread to other parts of the body, but we've already started scheduling chemotherapy at the end of the month because the sooner we bring the fight the better.
I spent a full week in the hospital getting all tests necessary and the doctors feel this can be treated. They at first found a malignant mass on the top part of my right lung which is the culprit that caused me pain for over 2 weeks before I walked into an ER...I didn't have any healthcare at the time I'm now trying to acquire state healthcare (Medicaid) because this is going to be expensive even with healthcare
I need the help of my friends and family more than ever and I hope each of you know how much this means to me. I have a lot to look forward in life still and I don't want to leave this world in such a condition
My love and respect to you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support
Very sad news; we're hoping the best for Eddie and his family. If you can help out, donate here.
