Pearl Jam revealed an hearth-breaking news about their long time tour manager Tom Husman.
In a recent Instagram post, Pearl Jam shared one of Husman’s photos and GoFundMe page. Unfortunately, this page was about helping Husman beat cancer.
There is the full statement on GoFundMe:
“Our friend Tom Husman was diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer in October 2018. By the time he was diagnosed, the cancer had already spread to his spine (causing excruciating back pain), his liver, and his left femur. The tumor on his femur was so large that it had to be surgically removed, and part of his bone was replaced with a metal rod to hold his leg together.
Tom is currently undergoing a rigorous chemotherapy program, that has followed radiation treatments for the tumors on his spine and femur. Throughout all of this Tom has remained positive, strong, and determined to battle this cancer. He has been unable to work since October, and any disability insurance will not be available for a couple more months.
He has medical insurance; however, his deductible is quite large and there are many other ancillary expenses that have not been covered. Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 for Tom by the end of March. This will sustain him until he is able to return to work and help cover his growing medical expenses. Tom has always been such a giver to everyone, and loved by so many people. It is now our turn to give back and help our dear friend.”
