He WAS a skater boi. Now he's hit the skids.
Deryck Whibley, lead singer of Sum 41 and possibly known better as Avril Lavigne's ex-hubby, shared a harrowing story this weekend.
After years of abusing alcohol, he suffered multiple organ failure. Frankly, it's a miracle he survived!
Well, after a month in the hospital, he's ready to get back up.
Thank goodness he's got the support of family and friends, including fiancée Jocylen Aguilar (left), to help him up. We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.
We also hope his struggles serve as a warning to people out there struggling with alcohol abuse — there are ways to get help, and going as far as Deryck just isn't worth it. He was extremely lucky to get a second shot!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see Deryck in better days.
