Mushroomhead Launches Fund to Help Singer's Wife Combat Cancer

Music News


Singer Jeff Hatrix is a veteran on the local metal scene. Years ago, he sang in the metal band Purgatory before becoming a member of Mushroomhead. Tragically, his wife Stacy has just been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer and has started chemotherapy. The band has plans to tour extensively in 2015, and Hatrix will have to take breaks to come back and care for her. It’s created a “huge financial burden,” so the band has organized a fundraiser to help the Hatrix family. You can access the site here to make a donation and find more information.
