Dez Cadena, beloved member of Black Flag, Misfits, DC3, Vida, Ella & The Blacks, Redd Kross, and Flag, is battling throat cancer.

Dez has just finished debilitating radiation treatments, and is confident he will return to active performance again within a year.  So Dez has had to take a long break from touring and recording and he had no other income to pay for the quite expensive treatments and doctor's bills.

We ask you today to donate funds to help Dez's cause, as this friendly man has given so much to the music community, and he is literally a living punk rock legend, having played on some of the classic records of the genre, and remains one of the most beloved members of the scene.

We ask you to please consider donating anything you can to help see Dez through the next year, so he can resume his proper place on the stages and records of our future. Thank you for assisting us in helping this very kind man in his time of need.

Best wishes, and thank you again!

Friends of Dez Cadena

Dez, you signed my arm :-) at the first punk show I'd been to in decades, in 2010. That show rekindled my long-lost love of this music, and it's still going strong. Best wishes for your continuing recovery!
