Former Suffocation Guitarist Guy Marchais Diagnosed With Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Guy Marchais, former guitarist for death metal heroes Suffocation (pictured right in the above photo), has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. A GoFundMe page as been set up for Marchais in order to raise $100,000 for his medical bills. 

It's a tough situation for Guy's family right now - according to the GoFundMe page, his niece was diagnosed with the same thing just recently as well. If you're a fan of the band, or a fan of death metal in general, or even just a fan of helping out, chip in if you can.

Marchais was part of Suffocation’s comeback in 2003, playing rhythm guitar next to Terrance Hobbs. He played on Souls to Deny (2004), Suffocation (2006), Blood Oath (2009) and Pinnacle of Bedlam(2013) before leaving the band in 2016.
