Settling in.

If you haven’t heard the news by now, you may be living under a rock.
My husband, Senor Eddie Spaghetti, is about to begin his battle with cancer.
That’s right.
His number is up. Card has been pulled. He is no doubt about to go through hell and we are going with him.

On Thursday we had the pleasure of watching him play his last show (for awhile) with a pretty amazing bolt of lightening. The whole show was on fire. The guest appearances were insane. I believe it was one of the best shows they have ever put on. The look on their faces said it all. They were all very aware of how lucky they are and how important that show was.

Truth is, he will survive. He will. His Doctor’s have all said that his prognosis is good but they have also told us, there are no promises to be made. Surgery followed by some gnarly radiation is what the summer holds for him and our job is to just walk the line, one foot in front of the other and just do whatever we have to do to make him whole again.

Since the news broke, we have been surrounded by the most amazing team of people, professionals and friends to help our family survive this mess. Not only will we have medical bills knocking down our door, but we have to go find a door to live behind. The people behind Eddie’s fundraising have gone without sleep to get this off the ground and off the ground it has gone. Jim Bullotta, Kurt Reighley, Brian Kasnyik, Rick Ballard just to name a few.

But it’s not over. We will be spreading the word and ask that you help us do so here. We are relocating to LA for a while to undergo surgery and I will be finding a job, taking care of our kids and the man who has always taken care of us.

I will be keeping you updated here and the Supersuckers have their facebook page, which if you aren’t following, you should. They will release all updates in a more timely manner than I can sometimes, due to the overload of life we’ve got right now.

Thank you everyone from the top of our hearts for all the support you have given this little family of mine. From your donations, retweets (yes, those silly things are important) to your sweet messages- it means everything and for a guy who never gets sick, it really is his lifeline right now. It has been a shit sandwich kinda year and we are prepared to kick major ass in 2016.

    Hi,
    I just wanted to let you know how much of an influence Eddie has been on me for the past 20+ years. I first saw the Supersuckers on the Jane Pratt talk show in the 90’s. The episode was about pot and the ‘suckers played Tasty Greens. I immediately went out and bought Smoke Of Hell and they’ve been my favorite band ever since. I’ve owned every album, been to dozens of shows, and shaken Eddies hand many times. Occasionally I’d work up the drunken courage to talk to the man, which always ends up one of two ways: either I ramble for too long about how great he is, or it’s a quick hello and a handshake or autograph and then I retreat back to my little corner feeling like I blew it again. No matter what, Eddie handles it with grace, charm, and a polite “Thanks, man.” He doesn’t know how many hours of my life I’ve spent geeking on every lyric, getting lost in every chord. How the thump of that badass Les Paul bass is sometimes the only thing that gets me through the day. He calls himself “rock guy,” but in my world there is only one true rock star and his name is Eddie Spaghetti. Without even realizing it, Eddie has been present for all the defining moments of my adult life. He’s made the celebrations brighter, and he’s helped me to cultivate all the courage, grit and strength I have.
    By now, you know that I’m not alone in feeling this way. There is only one of him, but there are thousands just like me, all over the world. Eddie has given us SO MUCH. I only hope that we can give a little piece back.
    Thank you for everything., Eddie. Even though you’ve already given me so much, I know there is so much more to come. You will get through this. There is an army of us behind you.
    Your fan for life,
    Andy Cenarrusa
