Megadeth: Dave Mustaine thanks fans for support following cancer diagnosis

Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine has posted a video message of thanks for people’s support following news of his throat cancer diagnosis

“I wanted to take a moment real quick to thank my family, friends and the best fans in the world for all your support and love the last few days,” says Mustaine. “We’re gonna beat this thing together.”

Last week, the rocker broke the news about his health status while maintaining a positive outlook about the journey ahead.

“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer,” explained Mustaine. “It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on - but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.”

In sync with the news, Megadeth continue to work in the studio on a new album and cancelled their 2019 tour plans while aiming to participate in the inaugural MegaCruise this October.
