On August 1, Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter revealed he was battling thyroid cancer. Hunter said his cancer is Papillary cancer, who is both the most common form and the most treatable. At the time he said he'd be undergoing thyroid removal surgery on August 12 and explore radioactive iodine treatment.

Fortunately Hunter has let us all know he's successfully made it through two surgeries and is mostly just really hungry now. We wish Hunter and his family all the best throughout the whole process!

I wanted to say thank you for the thousands of messages I received wishing me well.  I read them all.  Keeping y’all informed was the catharsis I needed.  I went from freaked out to back to myself almost immediately. So thank you again.

2nd surgery went well. I’m in minor pain but mostly I’m just starving.  Like Chris Farley in the SNL “Lay off me I’m starving!!!” skit.

Love y’all!
