Basti Artadi clarifies condition, tumor in the head not brain tumor

A day after GigsManila and other news agencies reported Basti Artadi’s medical condition, the rock artist comes out again to clarify things.

In a subsequent Facebook post on Wednesday June 22, 2016, Artadi corrected the reports that he has brain tumor but instead a benign tumor in the head particularly the nerve in the right part of his face.

“First of all, I’d like to clarify my condition. I do NOT have a brain tumor as what’s being reported in the news. I have a BENIGN facial nerve tumor that affects the movement of my face,” he wrote.

He also said that the funds that will be generated from the sales of his T-shirt will be use not for the procedure but as emergency fund for his family during his recovery period.

“As for the tees I’m selling, it’s really to help me out after the procedure. I won’t be able to gig right away, and I wanted to make sure I have a safety net for my kids during recovery.”

To end he said, there are still many things to do in the music industry and he intends to be around “for every sweat drenched rock n roll moment of it”.

Here’s the complete post by Basti Artadi.

*Please share to prevent more confusion…Thank you Wow, thank you guys for the overwhelming support, positive vibes, and prayers. I honestly did not anticipate this, as in REALLY. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

First of all, I’d like to clarify my condition. I do NOT have a brain tumor as what’s being reported in the news. I have a BENIGN facial nerve tumor that affects the movement of my face. Unfortunately, in my line of work, this means a lot. So as mentioned in my previous post, I intend to have the procedure that will help my situation. I’ve got it planned out, just waiting for the right time to do it.

As for the tees I’m selling, it’s really to help me out after the procedure. I won’t be able to gig right away, and I wanted to make sure I have a safety net for my kids during recovery. Due to your overwhelming support, I’m working on getting more tees out through the right platform. I’ll make sure to keep you posted once I’ve ironed it all out.

So with that being said, there’s a ton of stuff still to do in this beautiful music industry of ours and I intend to be around for every sweat drenched rock n roll moment of it!!! Bow!
