An Update on Rusko and His Continuing Fight With Cancer
Back in May of this year, we were exposed to a sad truth from 32-year old dubstep producer, Rusko (Chris Mercer). He had been diagnosed with stomach cancer, more specifically, gastric lymphoma, which led to the cancellation of his summer tour. However, we can report with 100% certainty that Mercer is in good spirits with this tweet being posted today:
While the status of Mercer’s condition is unknown, he is going through chemotherapy and like the tweet says above, this seems to be his third round of treatment.
It is so heartwarming to see someone who is staying positive in light of something that is translated so frequently to tragedy. So many people are behind Mercer currently and there has been an outpouring of support from the electronic music community. We, of course, hope that he will be better soon and are hoping to see nothing but favorable updates in the future. Our thoughts are with him!
EDM is a passion and being involved in the community, a dream come true. Enthusiastic, aspiring music producer.
