Mastodon's Troy Sanders Reveals Wife's Breast Cancer Fight
The Atlanta band announced that the cancellation was "due to a personal family matter", which Sanders is now sharing with fans. "Although I generally keep to myself and am very private with my personal life, I recognize this as something bigger than me and needs to be shared," posted the bassist on the group's social media sites.
"My wife Jeza was diagnosed with breast cancer in July of this year. She has already begun treatment and her prognosis is very, very good. Early detection saved her life! It may save your life, too. Please encourage the ladies in your life to get screened today."
Jeza also shared her personal experience and family history with the health issue alongside Troy's update, saying that "Breast cancer runs in my family so I've been neurotically checking and re-checking since my early 30's (now 41). I have yearly mammograms like clockwork. This year was no exception." Read more here.
