Get Well Soon, Chad

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (01/26/10)
Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory is having surgery on his thyroid today. He'll be missing the first three dates of NFG's anniversary tour, but Anthony Raneri will be filling in for him.
Message from ChadTwo weeks ago when I went to the Doctor with pneumonia.. they found some nodules in my thyroid , and one of them is a little bigger then a quarter. They did a biopsy and the report came back that there are some suspicious cells in the cyst. So due to the size and to be safe, Today at 2:45 I am having surgery and getting half of my thyroid removed. Immediately after removing it they will observe it and see if it looks like a cancer. If they find anything they will remove the rest of my thyroid. The odds are in my favor for it to be nothing which keeps me positive going in… I am only planning on missing the first three shows of this tour, and my good friend Anthony Raneri from the band BAYSIDE will be filling in for me until i make it back out. Thanks again for all the love and support and I hope to see you all super soon.

Love Always,

Chad Gilbert aka :@xchadballx,Captain Straight Edge,chad hulud etc.

Damn. I remember him saying on Twitter that he had pneumonia(which led to a bunch of sickness references being put into NFG lyrics). Hopefully he'll be okay. Get better soon Chad!

It'll be interesting to see if Anthony sings at all...

Poor guy. Hope he gets better. Anthony is an amazing replacement to have. I wouldn't mind seeing him play with NFG.

Get well buddy! Hopefully he'll only miss the first 3 shows and not the entire tour, although it would be cool to see Anthony with NFG

Chad gets better and NFG gets better. Everybody wins.
