Mike IX Williams Seeking Fan Help For Medical Bills While Awaiting Liver Transplant

After calling in Phil Anselmo and Randy Blythe to fill in for Mike IX Williams on recent EyeHateGod tour dates, it has been revealed that Mike IX is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver and is in need of a transplant.

To help with the rising medical and housing costs, Michelle Maher-Williams has launched a crowd funding campaign here. Michelle comments:

"On October 10th, 2016, he was admitted to the CCU, vomiting blood. Along with internal bleeding, it was determined that his liver and kidneys were failing. He was placed on life support and dialysis. Through sheer grit and determination, he was eventually able to function on his own. We were told that he would not be leaving the hospital without a new liver. His case was presented before the board and he was approved for the transplant list. He's been hospitalized ever since.

"We can't do this on our own anymore. The expenses are astronomical and overwhelming. Not only has our health insurance nearly tripled, but now we need to come up with our insurance deductible before the transplant occurs. We have a mountain of medical bills that need to be paid to ensure that his transplant isn't delayed. Since we live over an hour away from the hospital, we are required to rent an apartment nearby for 3-6 months after the transplant. His monthly prescriptions cost over $900. Mike hasn't been able to tour and I've taken a lot of time off in order to take care of him, so our income has plunged while our expenses have skyrocketed.

"Please help my lover get a liver! He's fought so hard to get this far. I will post updates as often as possible to keep everyone informed of his progress. If you are unable to donate at this time, please keep us in your thoughts and share, share, share! We thank you all."
