Currents guitarist Ryan Castaldi has GoFundMe set up to help fight Stage 3 cancer
A GoFundMe account has been set up to assist Currents guitarist Ryan Castaldi with his medical expenses after he was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. Here is a link to donate.
The musician was diagnosed in November of 2022 and began treatment late last month, according to a post. As the guitarist faces at least two more years of treatment, a GoFundMe fundraiser is seeking to raise $60,000 to assist will medical bills. Below is Currents' statement on the matter can be read in full:
Our dear friend and brother Ryan Castaldi has been diagnosed with Low-Grade Follicular Lymphoma, which is a non-Hodgkin's type of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system. He was diagnosed in November 2022.
Six months prior to diagnosis, Ryan noticed a small lump in his armpit that slowly grew larger. A biopsy in October showed that it was indeed cancer. It is called "low-grade follicular lymphoma because the abnormal cells are slow-growing non-Hodgkin lymphoma that can go undiagnosed for years. The abnormal cells develop in clumps inside lymph nodes. This type of lymphoma is considered controllable, but not necessarily curable because it is slow growing.
Ryan is currently in Stage 3 and the cancer was detected both above and below Ryan's diaphragm.
Ryan began his treatment with Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center at the end of December and his treatment includes both chemotherapy and monoclonal antibody. This treatment will last for six months followed by 2 years of maintenance monoclonal antibody treatment.
Overall, the prognosis for Ryan is very favorable but it will be a long journey. During the first six months of treatment, Ryan will not be touring with Currents. If treatment goes well, Ryan is hoping to be back on tour with the band during the summer.
Ryan has a very positive attitude and his outlook about his current situation but will truly miss touring and being on the road with his Currents family.
All donations and support will go towards medical expenses (deductibles, co-pays, and maximum out-of-pocket expenses), treatments, and living expenses.
Thank you in advance for all your generosity, prayers, and support for Ryan in his fight against cancer.
He will beat this.

Woke idiot here. He should be denied treatment for being unvaxxed.
It's called life. Get a job. Guitarist or bus boy at Dennys. Not my responsibility to find your life's goals or problems. Die with some dignity.
He is Currentsly fighting cancer lmaooooo
If you have the money to tour the world and support yourself at home, f*ck yourself for asking others for money because you're too f*cking dumb to get health insurance. Cue up all the excuses and then go eat a dick.
Read the GoFundMe. Why do these people always ask for "living expenses" to be helped with? Are you homeless? And it sounds like he has insurance because the fundraiser says to pay for deductibles and copays. Seriously bro, eat shit. You have insurance. Go get a job if you can't afford the copays and deductibles. Ask your family not the general public. And living expenses? Go live with parents if you can't afford to live on your own. Should we also find your daily meals for the next 6 months, too? How about a personal chef to come cook your meals? Anything else?
^ I've seen multiple people raise 50k+ for "living expenses" while they sit and watch netflix after using the money for gender reassignment surgery. This is the same for bands needing 100k for "living expenses" while recording an album.
Totally, bro's!!! I read this and then I saw a "f*ck cancer" bumper sticker on a car in the GameStop parking lot, so I, like, you know, totally crossed out the word "cancer" and wrote this guy's name over it because, you know, he should have just found the lump and either ignored it or just killed himself right there. And don't even get me started on him being born in a country with a broken healthcare system. It's like, "hellllllllllloooooooooo". I collect pornstar's autographs btw.
Yes, and to those bands/members and all the gayneeding living monies after chopping their dicks off - they can all go get f*cked.
My cousin could truly receive money farting in their spare time on their laptop. their best friend had been doing this 4 only about 12 months and by now cleared the debt farting in their mini mansion and bought a great Car to fart in. That is what we do... PAY𝐀THO𝐌𝐄7.C𝐨ℳ

WOW some of the comments are the reason most people hate metal heads still, people need help, not everyone has mommy and daddy to back us like the 13 year old's acting cool on lambgoat dissing a dude who got cancer (that is not his fault). You people are so dumb its almost fascinating. its like the retards who don't wanna have any govt assistance for anyone and say shit like get a job lol shut the f*ck up ive needed help and had 3 jobs at one time before shit happens life happens have some f*cking empathy or even a tiny bit of kindness not like dude is kickstarting a tv show or went to jail and needs money now kind of hard to work if you have cancer lol hes sick you retards, yeah don't help anyone with govt assistance let them keep it than what happens is we have even more homeless, more disease, more crime, more suicide, more problems some of these peoples logic is all flawed because you are a bad person karma never fails though so good luck when you need help and no one is there
^ Grammar. Try it.
Get the vax, get the cancer. Life is like a box of chocolate dicks. - Forest Gump
The people that are telling this guy he should die are probably gonna have some family members get sick one day and be really miserable. You will deserve it.
Also f*ck the Vax cancer edgelord, he's a f*cking mark bitch.
For those that are cheering this right now, I hope y'all get cancer and brutally mangled. Y'all really are devoid of humanity if you celebrate this. "Get a job". The same conservative clowns that thinks any nation that has universal healthcare is a communist nation.
I got ass cancer from too many pee pees in my bum bum.
Justin Timberlake just called. He said cry me a river, gaygot.
Cancer deserved, guy is a total Jabroni.
Mike Goo commented on this yet?
The vacks causes cancer by suppressing the immune system. Congrats, Bill Gates depopulated you.
He has money to tour the world. He has money to buy and insure gear. He has money to piss away on hobbies and other junk. He choose this lifestyle. He didn't bother saving for any life emergencies. Typical cup-in-hand mentality. f*ck off. Go work 4 jobs. Ask your parents and family for money. Enough of the public begging. I'd just as soon donate to help the koala bear he's holding than to help him. Whole f*cking generation of beggars. All this with the end goal to then rejoin the band and head right back out on tour, and still won't save for the future. So f*ck him. Hoping for Stage 4.
I'm a stage 4 homo. Terminally gayyyyyy!!!!
instead of bitching at people for being "Anti-Vax" yall should just go get another booster. Do your part
Bad omens just donated $5000
I donated some advice to him: you're not getting a penny from me when you've done nothing to earn it.
The hateful comments on this thread makes me hope they get killed in a drive by shooting or worse. It's not like your lives are anymore valuable to society. Wishing dead upon people. I wouldn't be surprised if half of you are dumb conservatives who jerk off to FOX News

I wouldn't be surprised if half of you are dumb conservatives who jerk off to FOX News Lmao this dude just clowned himself, such a soy boy
I don't wish him any ill will and certainly not death. I hope he makes a full and complete recovery, and can quickly get back to doing all the things he loves in his life. But it is pathetic that everyone feels the need to beg others to help them out in life in 2023. Why bother having health insurance if you need others to pay the deductibles/co-pays/etc? And #sorrynotsorry but I'm not paying your living expenses. The money to pay for your treatment isn't good enough, so you also need free rent, utilities, food, fuel, and car payments. Anything else we can get you while we're at it? Daily trip to the nearest Asian Massage Parlor for a rub n' tug? Weekly outcall escort service? Beggers can't be choosers. Actually, I changed my mind. f*ck this guy. Save the whales instead.
The hateful comments on this thread make me want to make hateful comments on this thread.
I'm confused. I thought he noticed a small lump in his underwear.
Hey guys. Hoping some of you can lend a helping hand and some of your hard-earned money. I play in a band called Toenails. We are a regional band based in Stockton, CA. Recently, our drummer's dog "lazy" developed a perianal fistula and needs surgery. Please see our GoFundMe. We can't tour with this ongoing medical situation. Help us to help give you guys great music. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-lazy-with-surgery?qid=892f2d0fd3358c12e32611ba031140a8
^ Actually, wow. Sad to hear about your dog. Just donated $10. Sorry I couldn't give more, but I'm saving up the next 3 months of my paychecks to donate to Ryan's personal chef which he needs to eat health and build his strength for tour. Good luck with your fundraiser!
Some heavy hitters in this comment section for sure
