Chad Gilbert (Ex-Shai Hulud, New Found Glory) diagnosed with tumor
Former Shai Hulud vocalist and New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert is again fighting cancer. After undergoing surgery in December of 2021, Gilbert revealed that he had been diagnosed with a tumor on his adrenal gland. In January of this year, he was declared cancer-free after a year of treatment.
According to a post that Gilbert shared earlier today on his social media, he was recently diagnosed with a tumor in the 12th vertebrae of his spine, as well as some abnormal nodules on his lungs. Surgical removal of the tumor will take place tomorrow, August 16th, and radiation therapy will follow.
As long as he continues to receive ongoing treatment, he says it can be effectively managed.
