The brother of ailing ex-Chimaira drummer Andols Herrick has shared the following update on what symptoms have been plaguing Andols with his as-yet undiagnosed mystery illness:
“…I’ve seen some people request a little more info so that they know what’s going on, but Andols requested that I not put anything in too specific. I will say this: His issue is abdominal.
He has good days and bad days. On good days, he can move around a bit and perhaps run an errand. On bad days he can’t get out of bed or even bend over, much less eat very much. He has lost a ton of weight because of this and is a bit emaciated.
Hopefully that gives you a little more clarity about what’s going on without violating his wishes. Thank you all again for your wonderful support of my brother.”
This Gofundme has been launched to help with the associated medical costs as Andols meets with physicians and specialists to determine what he is suffering from.
