The official and verified Instagram account of Exodus shared a new photo of Tom Hunting today and shared his first public message after he announced his cancer diagnosis in public yesterday.

You may remember that yesterday, the social media accounts of Exodus, Gary Holt and Tom Hunting shared simultaneous posts and announced that Tom found out that he has a gastric tumour in his upper stomach. As we shared his own message on our recently published article, he stated that he’s going to beat that disease like a snare drum that owes him money.

After Exodus and Tom revealed the news in public, thousands of their fans shared a bunch of ‘Get well soon!‘ messages to the Exodus drummer and he did not want to stay silent after all these messages. He shared simple and plain messages and thanked his fans for the support.

Right after sending the post via the official account of Exodus, over 20K fans of the band pushed the like button to show their support for Tom, including Behemoth’s Adam Nergal Darski, Anthrax star Frank Bello, Gary Holt, and his lovely wife Lisa Holt.

Exodus wrote this in the caption of the photo:

“Getting my 1st Chemikill Concocted Cancer Killing Cocktail! Thank You ALL for your support!!

—Tom.”

Here is what Lisa Holt wrote as a comment:

“We love you, Tom! You got this beat already!!!”

And here is the comment of Frank Bello:

“Get well soon Tom!”
