Update #2


Hey everyone, I am happy to pass along the latest on John’s condition… this comes directly from Mina Devadas:

Dear Hearts: Like a couple of sharks, we circled the perimeter of the nurses’ station and entire unit tonight–twice! John felt great about this progress and asked me to share this photo with all of you. Chemo, delayed until he could get stronger, starts early next week. Wish us luck! Much love, Mina and JS

Go, John, go!!  All of your support and PMA is helping John and Mina immensely.  Oh, and how do you like the custom OFF! hospital gown Mina made for John?  I’d say fit for an avenging punker.

Much love, Derrick

John “Stabb” Schroeder Cancer Fund

John “Stabb” Schroeder who is most famously known for his time fronting the 80s Washington DC punk band Government Issue was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer.  On February 7th, Stabb’s soul mate, Mina, posted the news:

Dear Hearts: On behalf of John and per his instructions, I am devastated to share that he has been diagnosed with malignant stomach cancer in addition to having two intestinal tumors removed through his recent surgery. We are crushed by this development and still processing what this means for John in the next weeks. Please keep him close in your hearts. Here, we will keep fighting fiercely like good punks do. Love from both of us to all of you.

Much Love,
Mina & John S
