Lamb Of God song helped save man's life
In 2016 Lamb Of God released a track (and EP) titled "The Duke" in honor of a fan and friend who died of leukemia the year before. Accompanying the record's release was an awareness campaign for a free bone marrow registry matching blood cancer patients with prospective donors.
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has revealed that upon hearing "The Duke" five years ago, a Lamb Of God fan named Todd Seaman registered for the aforementioned registry, and earlier this year he was identified as a match for a 65-year-old leukemia patient in Virginia.
Today, the leukemia patient is receiving Seaman's stem cell and plasma donation.
"To say that I am honored to have been a small part of this is a massive understatement," says Blythe. "Yesterday Todd said 'Dude- Lamb of God saved someone’s life today'- I said 'No, YOU saved someone's life today. Lamb of God just helped you a little."
Blythe spent some time with Seaman and his father prior to the procedure this week. You can learn more via Blythe below.
