Sum 41’s Dave “Brownsound” Baksh says he’s now cancer-free

Back in March, Dave “Brownsound” Baksh found a lump that didn’t seem right. He got himself to a doctor, got a bone scan, and discovered that this was a tumor. Surgery was ordered and completed. And now as Sum 41 and Simple Plan continue the Blame Canada Tour (which is only going through the US, apparently), Baksh can say he’s cancer-free.

I quote from his Instagram post:

Don’t be concerned, my brush with this serious disease was very short-lived thanks to the help of great doctors, a friend that helped me get a bone scan within weeks of my surgery, my family (extended included), the amazing people in #LDK (up the Kzinti!) and last but not least the emotional, physical and celery juice support that [partner Kendra Emmett] and my wonderfully amazing gifted, did I mention wonderful, kids gave me.

Here’s the full post.
