WARRANT Drummer STEVEN SWEET Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer

WARRANT's longtime drummer Steven Sweet has been diagnosed with moderately aggressive prostate cancer.

A GoFundMe campaign has been started by his friend Glenn Noyes to help Steven raise $25,000 to cover the drummer's medical expenses while he is unable to perform live and support his family.

A message on the GoFundMe page states: "My dear friend Steven Sweet, the drummer for WARRANT, has recently been diagnosed with moderately aggressive prostate cancer.

"He has an amazing emotional support group in place to help him beat this cancer in his wife Beth, two beautiful children, his bandmates, family, friends and fans.

"His positive attitude is a great start, but ahead he faces many medical hurdles and many months of post procedural time, not being able to perform live and support his family.

"We are reaching out to the drumming and music community to help Steven generate some funds to help him with the high costs of medical care, travel to treatment on the East coast and costs not covered by insurance. Treatments start this week so there is definite urgency to this.

"I'm asking all of you to help by contributing any amount, so Steven can hopefully put this behind him.

"Please forward and share this via all methods with anyone you know that is a friend, fan or has been associated with Steven.

"Thank you for reading,

"Glenn Noyes"

Although prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer found in men and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, it can also be one of the most treatable forms of cancer.

On average, approximately one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

Two years ago, Sweet underwent emergency surgery after his appendix burst. Four years earlier, he had a cervical spinal fusion operation.

WARRANT's latest album, "Louder Harder Faster", was released in May 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.
