Here’s some unfortunate news. LFO singer, Devin Lima, has been diagnosed with stage four cancer after undergoing kidney surgery to remove a tumor.
Bandmate, Brad Fischetti, broke the news through a YouTube video and explained, “Devin asked me to give you this update without him because, frankly, he’s not feeling very well but, he asked me to send you his love and gratitude for all the love and prayers you’ve sent his way. He’s had a tough recovery. He had a few really difficult days in the hospital, but thankfully, he’s home now, resting and healing.”
According to Fischetti, this is a rare “one in a million” type of cancer and 40-year-old Lima will need chemotherapy, radiation, and long-term medication to fight the disease.
“I wish we had better news to share,” Fischetti continued. “It’s devastating news but at the same time, there’s nobody I know stronger than Devin Lima. No one has a stronger body, mind or soul. If anybody can defeat this, it’s Devin. I know with your prayers and your thoughts and your positive energy coming down his way, there’s no doubt that he will beat it.”
Considering this news, is LFO planning to go back on tour in the future? “It’s my hope and prayer that we have that opportunity again,” Fischetti said. “Actually, I know that we’ll have that opportunity again.”
It’s good to stay optimistic at a time like this for everyone involved. Get well soon, Devin Lima!
