Behemoth frontman finds donor
2010-11-09 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 66 Comments
Behemoth frontman Nergal has received a huge boost in his fight against leukemia as chemotherapy has been successful and a matching bone marrow donor has been found.

Nergal wrote: "Hello everyone! I’m still in the hospital but in quite good shape so I write to let you know about my health and the further stages of treatment. I’ve been through four planned chemotherapies and have stayed in hospital for over 3 months now. I’ve gone through the whole therapy smoothly, though I also had a couple of difficult moments.

"All this means I finish the stage of pharmacological treatment and I am about to start the irradiation and then the marrow transplant. Yes, we’ve found a donor! Having searched for months, the foundation has found a person whose genotype is identical to mine. It would have been difficult to achieve if it wasn’t for the support of so many people.

"Most of all, I want to express my admiration for Dorota - my wonderful and devoted fiancée. She did everything she could to help me and many other people, regardless of adversities and comments which were often unfair. Your help is invaluable! Thank you! I love you. On behalf of me and all other people ill I thank everyone who registered in the bone marrow bank regardless of origin, skin colour or religion.

"The concerts for charity have been organised all over the world and people of show business, bands and, most of all, the fans got deeply involved. You are beyond great! One of you made my transplant possible, but remember, your attitude may save many others in need. So I appeal to everyone: don’t stop the madness! The march for victory continues! Horns up!"

This makes me happy. My grandma died from leukemia in September, it's nice to know someone else is having a successful fight.

That part was pretty stupid. "I'd like to thank my donor for putting his life on the line to help me. Wait, what? He's Asian, Vietnamese and Christian??? Well fuuuuck that!"


In any case, good for him. Finding a match can be a bitch in the best of conditions.

believe it or not but loads of people (read: christians) probably think that he has some prejudice against people of different origin, skin colour or religion (ironic, right?) because of the nature and lyrics of his music

Doctor: "We found a match."
Nergal: "OK."
Doctor: "But he's Christian."
Nergal: "Aww shit!"

for all we know the marrow is from a follower of Islam and soon enough Nergal will be the newest member of Orphaned Land

As a Christian, I can personally say that wouldn't have ever crossed my mind. You're talking about lip-service Christians, which -believe it or not- do not represent the rest of us nor are they the majority; they're just the loudest.

Man, it's just relieving to see someone live through something as bad as what he's going through, or well have a chance. Generally it tends to be (at least in music) that person A kills themselves, or it's so late in some terminally ill disease that there's really not much of a hope to be had. It's just great to see someone have a chance like this. Hoping he manages to fight it off.
