Metal Church and ex-W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland starts chemotherapy treatments

After revealing earlier this month that he was diagnosed with cancer, current Metal Church and former W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland has begun chemotherapy treatments.

The following message was posted on Metal Church‘s Facebook page earlier today:

Stet Update!! The first chemotherapy treatment wiped him out, although he is feeling better then before the diagnosis and treatment, he is still pretty weak. At this time, he is expected to have chemotherapy 4 or 5 more times over the course of the next 12 weeks or so. Each treatment will consist of Stet checking into the hospital as an inpatient and running continuously on chemo (16 hour drips, one right after the other) for just under 5 full days. On his days โ€œoffโ€ he will continue to go in for blood testing, and will receive blood transfusions every couple of days.

The doctors, nurses and staff have been and are amazing! They are closely monitoring Stet and he has complete confidence in their course of treatment. Stet and his family have tons of amazing friends, family and fans to thank for all the help and support and all the well wishes and prayers!

Please keep all the good vibes coming, as Stet has a very long road ahead of him, but he is a fighter and intends to kick Cancer right in the ass!! On behalf of Stet, his family and his Metal Church brothers, thanks to everyone for all the support and good wishes you’ve expressed to him here!!”
