Metal Church drummer Stet Howland came down with a mystery illness in late September, and after testing was unfortunately diagnosed with Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. DLBCL is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and affects between 7 and 8 people per 100,000 in the United States and the United Kingdom. Metal Church has recently taken to Facebook to announce that Howland underwent a spinal tap procedure last week and had to shave his head for the process, though they also point out he's still in good spirits.
