$64,675 of $80,000 goal

Raised by 1,300 people in 1 month
Sylvain Sylvain, songwriter and original longtime member of the NY Dolls was recently diagnosed with cancer. He has been undergoing treatment that appears to be moving along successfully but has a long way to go.  This fund will be of great assistance in getting him back on his feet.

Hi Everybody:
I know there has been some curiosity, speculation and, yes, rumor about why I haven't been Rampaging songs on FB or, more importantly, out on tour promoting my book “There’s No Bones in Ice Cream” and playing in a town near YOU.
First the BAD news: For about a year now, I have been battling cancer.
Then the GOOD news:I have an upcoming surgery with a great doctor that may do the TRICK.   There will, however, be a somewhat long recovery period (at least a year).  I have not been able to work since last year and have more surgery scheduled.  I love life! As hard as life has been to me these past 2 years I want to live and I know with your love & support I’ll have the best chance that I could ever have,

Update from Sylvain April 30, 2019

Hi Everybody,
First, let me thank you all from the bottom of my HEART for your love and support. It brings such help and relief to me and my family. All of your beautiful thoughts, pictures and messages are breathtaking and full of LIFE/LUV. It strengthens me greatly.

I will be bringing your possitive energy with me to the hospital tomorrow when I go for my third surgical procedure to remove the cancer that has invaded me.
I will be having a Neobladder reconstruction. I am optimistic about the surgery but will continue to need your love and support through my recovery which, realistically, will take about a year.

I know some of you would like to see or speak to me but that will not be possible for awhile. I ask you to please respect my privacy so, for now, just continue to think of me.
I will post as soon as I'm able.

Please support my GoFundMe page if you haven't already.
I am grateful for each and everyone of you for your LUV and support.

Now! Let’s keep on rockin.
