"Stage four is a death certificate just waiting to be signed."
A statement made after discovering the original guitarist, Daisy Berkowitz, for Marilyn Manson, reported having stage four colon cancer, insensitive? It was not intended to be mean spirited, just honest.
I think because stage 4 cancer is so hard to treat he has lost all hope in his life. I think he was being honest, however it feels harsh especially as there are millions around the world with the same disease.
