Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
On Christmas Day, Green’s mother, Carol Namatame, took to Facebook to share the sad news of her son’s diagnosis and asked fans to send “healing vibes” during this time.
“He is [sic] so strong and so brave and hang in there!” she added to her post, which included a collage of images of the 45-year-old drummer.
On Tuesday, Jeremiah’s brother, Adam Green, shared an update on his condition with Fox News Digital.

“He’s doing great considering the circumstances,” Adam shared. “He played a lot of shows with the cancer, but the doctor gave him the green light to play until the last West Coast date. His goal is to tour South America again this spring. He has about 4 weeks of Chemo and Radiation left.”
Marco Collins, a Seattle-based DJ, also took to social media on Sunday to announce Green’s diagnosis.
“Just out of the blue my friend Jeremiah Green (Modest Mouse) has canceled the band’s tour as he is currently undergoing chemo treatments to fight Stage 4 Cancer,” Collins wrote, alongside a black-and-white photo of Green playing drums.
Collins noted that Green’s “prognosis is good” and concluded his message with, “Sending him nothing but love & healing energy! Be good buddy. We’re all rooting for you!”

Green has been the drummer for Modest Mouse since he co-founded the band in 1992. In 2003, he left the band for a year due to a nervous breakdown, reports People magazine.
Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock spoke to NME in July when he shared that the band is working on new music. Modest Mouse’s latest album, “The Golden Casket,” was released in 2021.

“I have seven new songs coming out pretty quickly,” Brock shared. “As soon as we finished the last album, I had a thorn in my side about everyone saying, ‘Why is it taking so long to put out records?’ Because I find other interests! They’re not all good, but f— it! I don’t have to answer that question anymore, so I have a record that I’m really happy with.”
