He Is Legend Singer Schuylar Croom Reveals Year-Long Battle With Mystery Illness


He Is Legend vocalist Schuylar Croom has opened up regarding his health in regards to a medical condition he has been battling for the past year. In a video updated posted today (January 15th,) he offered:

“I have an illness, we’re not sure what it is. I get sick, usually in the mornings. I’ll throw up and then I will be ill for sometimes two weeks. Those are the gory details. I’m not talking I throw up and go to bed and feel gross, I’m throwing up twenty times a day. I’m like living in the bathroom.”

He later continued:

“So all year we’ve been going in and out, trying to figure this out. We thought that gall bladder removal was the answer—it turned out it wasn’t, I got sick again. This time very close to my recording sessions for the new He Is Legend record. As I was healing from the gall bladder surgery I get sick again, so we had to push recording for me, the album is finished, other than vocals.”

He went on to thank his significant other, family, friends and fans and the various doctors he’s seen over the past year. He also confirmed he remains committed to making and playing music, offering “I’m born to do what we do, so I won’t turn my back on that. And I won’t let an illness stop me—though it has delayed me.”

Croom recently revealed on Twitter (see below) that he and his doctors had to go “back to the drawing board” since the gall bladder removal surgery didn’t cure him. They now think his condition may be related to his struggles with diabetes. His health issues have necessitated the band cancelling their ‘ShipRocked‘ appearance and a pair of shows around it, but he remains positive and hopeful that everything will work out.
