Punk icon Dave Smalley needs help battling cancer – friends and family launch Gofundme

Friends and family of American punk rock legend Dave Smalley (Don’t Sleep, DYS, Dag Nasty, All, Down by Law) have launched a GoFundMe to help with mounting medical bills incurred as a result of Smalley’s recent cancer diagnosis.

The statement says: “If you’re seeing this, you’re more than likely a friend, fan, or supporter of Dave Smalley. He’s currently in the beginning stages of recovering from some serious health issues and is in need of our help. Dave had a tough fight against cancer last year. He spent the first half of 2023 doing several bouts of chemo, followed by surgery to remove the remaining cancer. The recovery from surgery and treatment brought on its own challenges, which left Dave hospitalized with Encephalitis on two separate occasions, for several months. He is back home now but will need some PT going forward. It’s been a scary year, but Dave is winning his fight. While he was hospitalized he was unable to work and is left with an astronomical amount of bills. No matter the amount, any donation will go straight towards the care and medical attention needed to get him back on his feet.”

Here is a message from Dave’s children; Madeline, Abigail, Colter, and Griffin: Hi all, Dave’s kids here. We just wanted to say thank you in advance for your support for our dad. He’s had a hell of a year with these health complications, but we’re confident that he’s on the road to recovery. Even while in the hospital he was showing us studio recordings of some new music!!! All the love you’ve been sending is appreciated. Cheers.”
