Modest Mouse Drummer Jeremiah Green Diagnosed With Stage 4 Cancer

Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green‘s mother Carol Namatame recently took to social media to reveal Green has been diagnosed with state 4 cancer.

“Please send healing vibes for my son, Jeremiah Green, who is battling stage 4 cancer. He’s is so strong and so brave and hanging in there!” Namatame wrote on Facebook alongside photos of the rocker. However, she did not specify the type of cancer.

Radio host Marco Collins, who also shared the news on Facebook, wrote that Green pulled out of the band’s recently wrapped tour that marked the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough sophomore album, The Lonesome Croweded West, due to chemotherapy treatments.

“Despite having a stage 4 diagnosis, his prognosis is good! Also his oncologist is a big MM fan (so he’s got that in his corner!),” Collins added. “Sending him nothing but love & healing energy! Get well buddy. We’re all pulling for you!”

It is not yet known if Green will take part in the Lollapalooza South American music festivals in Chile, Argentina and Brazil in March.
