Deryck Whibley, of Sum 41 fame, has had some tough times lately.
Being an alcoholic is never easy, but when it gets so bad it leads to multiple organ failure… life can get pretty rough.
We previously mentioned he’s been looking frail ever since ending up in the hospital for a month.
He is doing better now and truly appreciates all the well wishing he received when he was feeling ill.
Thanking his fans, he wrote in a blog post:
“I just wanted to thank you all so much for sending gifts and all of the compassion and support you have shown me. It really means a lot to me in this time of recovery. I will be better soon and back out on stage before you know it.”
That’s so amazing! He went from knocking on death’s doorstep to turning his life around.
Best part? He’s getting back to his roots, back into music, saying:
“Soon it will be time to start making an album and getting back to touring again. See you all sometime.”
So great! We love how positive he’s being about everything.
We really hope he continues to feel better!
