A GoFundMe.com campaign has been launched for former Chimaira drummer Andols Herrick. He is currently suffering from an unknown illness that has rendered him unable to work. His family has launched the crowdfunding effort to help cover the medicals bills so that doctors can identify the illness and then begin proper treatment. The following statement can be found on the page:

“For about 9 months, Andols has faced some chronic medical issues. After six trips to the ER, numerous specialists (one of which who was stumped and bowed out of his case), surgery, physical therapy, and a host of prescribed and expensive medications with minimal efficacy, there is nothing substantive to show for it.

Meanwhile, this illness has left him unable to work, his medical bills are piling up. and he’s been forced to stay with family as we work to get him well. We are optimistic and prayerful that we will eventually find the answers that will get him back to wellness, but at this point, it’s pretty open-ended.

If Andols‘ music touched or improved your life in any way, we hope that you will make a donation of any size to help ease this burden. Thank you in advance, and be assured that any funds will go straight to debt-reduction with the balance into a reserve for future medical expenses.”
