Help Randy Blythe’s Sister-In-Law Fight Cancer

There is a short list of people that we here at the MetalSucks Mansion hold in solidly high regard, and Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is definitely on that list. Though a rabid scarecrow onstage, Randy is a real mensch as an everyday person, and he’s a true defender of the faith–he gets sludge metal stars to DJ his wedding, he’s vocal about gun law reform and environmental protection, and he says ‘Fuck you’ to guys who attack metal from a money-grubbing outsider’s point of view. And that’s just from our more recent posts about him.

Now, Randy is asking for your help. In a recent Instagram post, the singer reveals that his sister-in-law Bianca is fighting cancer, and is undergoing chemo, which is really rough, really exhausting, and most of all, really expensive. He’s asking fans to contribute to the GoFundMe started in her name.

You can see the full post below, but here’s Randy’s caption:

This is my kid brother Scott’s wife, Bianca– she’s the only sister I’ve ever had, & I love her so very dearly. Bianca is undergoing chemo right now before she has a double masectomy– after that, she has to undergo radiation treatment- she has Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer, & it’s brutal. Her spirit is strong, & she’s fighting hard, but my brother still has to go to work, she still goes to work when she is well enough, & they still have my 7 year old nephew to look after- it’s exhausting for all involved, especially Bianca. Over the years I’ve donated to & used my platform to raise money/awareness for various disease related charities– the #LeukemiaandLymphomaSociety, the #StoneCircleofFriends (Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy), the #PinkInkFund (a masectomy tattooing fund), I did a 60 mile walk in 3 days wearing pink corpse paint & a kilt (yes, THAT kilt, from Killadelphia) while pushing an injured friend in a wheelchair to raise money for breast cancer research- all ya have to do is google my name + these diseases & a story will pop up. I’ve posted here about & donated my money to various fundraisers for musicians with medical bills (just scroll back.) I’m not saying this because I’m the greatest dude on earth (because I’m absolutely NOT) but I definitely have tried to use my position as a musician/photographer/writer to help others, whether it’s friends, fans, fellow musicians, or strangers. Up until now, it’s always been people outside my family– sadly, that is no longer the case. It sucks, but I can only try to help out my sister-in-law using any means at my disposal. To that end, Bianca’s friends set up a GoFundMe because this cancer bullshit is EXPENSIVE, so if you can, kick down a few bucks (of course, my wife & I already have)- LINK IS IN MY BIO, or you can go to: https://ift.tt/2AUEubA. If you can’t, send her some positive vibes- she’s the best & my family needs her to stick around for a long time. I freaking hate this cancer crap! And ladies, please check your breasts & get them checked by the lady doctor regularly- it’s a matter of life & death. Thank you for reading this, I truly appreciate it. I love you, Bianca! #fuckcancer#PMA

Damn, this cuts straight to the core. Anyone who’s ever had a loved one fight cancer, let alone had it themselves, knows how tough beating it can be. It’s a grueling process that can sometimes seem as terrible if not worse than the cancer itself.

If you want to give to Bianca’s fund, you can do so here. The fund has already reached over $11k of its $20k goal, but every dollar or cent after that would continue to help. I’ll post it again: you can help Bianca by donating heeere.

From everyone at MetalSucks, our hearts go out to Bianca, Randy, and all their loved ones. We wish her a speedy recovery.
