Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter revealed some unfortunate news earlier this month that he was diagnosed with Papillary cancer, a common type of thyroid cancer. When he shared the news expressed how it has a high cure rate and yesterday (12th), he went into the next phase of his treatment with the removal of the rest of his thyroid via radioactive iodine treatment. Hunter has now provided an update via social media that the second surgery was a success.

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!
