New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert Declared Cancer Free


In a new post shared today (January 28th) via his Instagram, New Found Glory guitarist/vocalist Chad Gilbert (also formerly of Shai Hulud) has revealed that he has been declared cancer free. The 40-year-old pop-punk musician opened up about his cancer battle this past December, which involved a rare form of a tumor being found on his adrenal gland.

In his newly posted update, he shared the following of the surgery and current state of his health, while also showing off some extensive post surgery scars:

“Half a liver, a gallbladder, & one adrenal gland later, I am officially cancer free. All my tests and scans came back clear! I know there’s the chance of it coming back later but I feel so good knowing what was in me is gone and if it ever does come back, we will see it from it’s beginning. Let’s not even worry about that though.

I’m so lucky to still be here and so blessed that I had a super team that fixed me. My endocrinologist, surgeon, & oncologist teaming up and taking down my Pheochromocytoma more swiftly & efficiently than the Avengers could defeat Thanos in Infinity War.

Love them and am forever grateful. And once again the biggest I love you and thank you to my wife for being tough, brave, and for saving me. Getting me through all of this and staying by my side while at the same time taking care of our baby girl Lily at home.

All my ICU nurse family who I lived with for 2 weeks, who had to check me every hour to keep me safe. Thank you thank you!!! All you fans out there writing me the nicest messages when you all found out what happened. You already do enough as fans but that was awesome and kept me feeling loved. I am forever changed by this experience. 2022 is gonna be awesome!!! Will be rocking in your faces soon enough. God bless!”
