SOILENT GREEN and CROWBAR drummer Tommy Buckley had his prostate removed August 13th due to cancer. The cancer was in a small part in his prostate, but doctors suggested total removal to prevent the spreading of cancerous cells.
An update reads: "TODAY! October 9th! Tommy got his blood test results and he has a clean bill! NO CANCER!! PSA level=0. This is the best news ever!
We are so happy for Tommy and Lisa. They have BOTH had the MOST positive attitudes through all of this. Tommy has been playing his drums like there's no tomorrow and Lisa has been right there by his side! All they can do is look totally forward now and get on with their lives... and a happy one it will be.
Please guys go and get a prostate exam and get your PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels checked! Early detection is very important!!"
