Exodus' Tom Hunting

Exodus Drummer Tom Hunting Remains Cancer Free After Gastrectomy


A new post on social media made by Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has offered an update on the health of the band’s drummer Tom Hunting. Hunting underwent a full gastrectomy (a surgical removal of the stomach) on July 12th, having been diagnosed with a gastric tumor in his upper stomach this past February.

Speaking on the matter today, July 26th Holt offered:

“Update of Tom! Tom has been home for around a week now, is doing very well despite the pain, is eating real food but also adjusting to a new relationship with food and a new way of having to eat. But he’s a rock in all this, strong as hell and he’s gonna crush this. And he is CANCER FREE. They got it all. Fuck yes! I know if he was on social media he would thank each and every one of you for all the well wishes, donations, tickets for the benefit show that were purchased as well as the raffle items. Only a matter of time before he is crushing the drums again!🤘🏻he’s got some real healing to do but he is on his way to recovery”
