    Default Rockstar5150 has Leukemia

    Hey, everyone. My old friend Nate B. - a.k.a. Rockstar5150 - has cancer. As if it wasn't bad enough, it turns out that his strain of leukemia is AML. It's going to be a tough fight, but Nate's a fantastic guy and has a great attitude. I know he can do this.

    Nate's been a lurker for almost a decade. He's a former Airman - he separated as an E-5 (Staff Sergeant) - and was awarded the Purple Heart. I've been his friend since 1997. We were in a band together and our friendship even survived me firing him from the band. I've recently been stationed near him so we formed 5149 as an excuse to play together a few times a year.

    Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Nate found out about this as he was being seriously considered for the Production Manager's Assistant job for the KISS/Crue tour. I really love him and his wife and I am praying for them both.

    My thoughts are with him as he goes through this tough time...All the very best to him and his family - fingers firmly crossed that he gets better as soon as humanly possible.

    Hey Rockstar5150 hang in there. Dont give up. Get help during your chemo see a counselor do whatever you need to to cope. Prayers sent.

    Hey, all. After being bombarded with constant chemo for almost two weeks, Rockstar5150 is technically in the remission stage. The problem is that the chemo destroyed his white blood cells and his white count is extremely low, making him susceptible to infections. Nate is still in the hospital until his white count rises: an acceptable low range for adults is around 4, and Nate's was 0.6.

    Thanks for the prayers and thoughts. He's a great guy and a warrior.

    I hate cancer.
