EYEHATEGOD Frontman Mike XI Williams' Condition Gets Worse, Seeking More Donations

After dropping off some tours, Eyehategod frontman Mike XI Williams was not in good shape. He was in need of a liver transplant, and set up a YouCaring fundraiser, seeking help from fans to help pay for medical bills.

As of this writing, they have raised over $61,000. Unfortunately, Mike's wife, Michelle Maher-Williams, reveals some unexpected complications have made Mike's condition even worse, and thus, increasing medical cost. They are asking for more help:

Hi everyone! I just wanted to update you on Michael‘s condition. A few weeks ago, they discovered the reason that he kept bleeding internally was due to a bleeding ulcer combined with a very low clotting factor. He underwent endoscopic surgery where they put 3 clips on the ulcer to stop the bleeding. We were informed that it’s in a very fragile area prone to bleed again.

Which, of course, it did. Several times. Eventually, they went in and cauterized the ulcer, hoping to put an end to the bleeding. They also worked on raising his clotting factors with medications to help do so. During this time, the results of Mike‘s stress test came back positive for heart damage. His liver failure has taken a toll on his heart and he needed to undergo a procedure to repair it.

He was told that he would have to be put on blood thinners and, when combined with his already low clotting ability, there was a very high risk that he could bleed out and die on the table. If he didn’t have the procedure, he’d be removed from the transplant list. There was no other choice. He had to do it.

Thankfully, there were no complications, and Michael pulled through. He has to remain on blood thinners until December 8th. Once they are out of his system, it’s transplant time!

Thanks so much to all of you for helping him get this far. I dread to think where he would be without it. His deductible is paid for, as is a portion of his past due hospital bills. But we still need to cover the actual surgery, as well as this current monster of a hospital stay and his aftercare, which involves a ton of expenses. Please continue to send positive thoughts, donate and share, share, share!

Much love and gratitude,
Michelle Maher-Williams

This is truly sad news. If you have some available finances, you can contribute at the YouCaring fundraiser page.

      He wouldn't do that. The doctors made him cross his heart and pinkie swear that he wouldn't drink or do any more drugs.
