Lead Singer of Ministry of Love Diagnosed With Cancer

Posted by - 03:14 PM on 08/13/12
Meg Vitale of Ministry of Love has been diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma, a type of thyroid cancer.
Message from the BandAs some of you may know, our singer Meg Vitale has been dealing with some serious health problems the past few months. Today she got the results of her medical tests back, and she has been diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma, a type of thyroid cancer. Normally this type of cancer is self-contained, but in this case it has spread to...her lymph nodes, meaning she is going to have to undergo surgery and also radiation treatments to combat this illness. We didn't want to announce anything until we knew all the facts, but now that we know we feel you all deserve to know what's going on.

Our CD release show for Friday August 17th at the House Of Blues is still on, and we are looking forward to putting on a great show for you all. This may be our last show for some time, so if you were thinking about going, it would be awesome to see you guys there.

We love you guys so much, and we have never needed your support more than now. Please keep Meg in your thoughts and prayers, and we promise we will keep you updated as to her condition.

♥ MOL

I check them out after seeing them on a NP banner on this site.

I'll definitely pick up their EP once I get internet.

That's a shame. How many fans does this band have again?

I'm curious as to why that would matter?

We've actually been featured on here a few times, not that it matters at all in this situation. Thanks to everyone who has been supportive.
