Lucas Starr diagnosed with colon cancer

Former Oh, Sleeper bass player Lucas Starr was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer last month shortly after going to the hospital for abdominal pain.

Starr, age 34, was a member of Oh, Sleeper from 2006 until 2011 and appeared on the band's first three records, The Armored March, When I Am God, and Son of the Morning.

Upon his diagnosis, a GoFundMe campaign was launched to help offset medical expenses. Additionally, there will be a benefit show on October 19th at the Door in Dallas, TX featuring Oh, Sleeper, Terminal, and Honey Lotus.

"Terminal" is not a good band to have on your cancer fundraiser show.

"Terminal" on a show for a dude with cancer.

Also, it's nice of them to do a benefit show but I doubt the $9 they make from the door will go very far towards his medical bills...
