Travis Dopp, guitarist of Michigan post-hardcore/punk band Small Brown Bike, has been diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched on his behalf to offset medical costs.

Dopp issued the following statement today:

"It's Travis... wanted to reach out to our community and share some dumb news I got at the end of October. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.

"A friend of mine has set up a Gofundme page. It's the worst time to ask for help - 2020 has put us all in a pickle jar of weirdness, but if there's anything you can do - it would be majorly appreciated.

"If you care to follow my journey defeating this diagnosis, feel free to follow.

"Know this, my mind and spirit are so ready for this journey - it's kind of weirding me out, I see a bigger future for myself and it doesn't have cancer in it... AT ALL!

"If you're 38 years old, get your ass's checked! There's more and more cases in younger people. Colon cancer is preventable if caught early.

"Thank you, and Love."
