Member Of X Diagnosed With MS

09:01 AM Tuesday 6/2/09 |   |

Exene Cervenka released a statement today saying she is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.

The 53-year-old singer says she’s been suffering from MS for “quite some time” although it will not affect X’s current tour plans nor her solo album slated to be released this fall.

Cervenka released the following statement this morning:

After some months of not feeling 100% healthy, I recently had some medical tests run and the prognosis is that I am suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. Apparently, it has been affecting me for quite some time.

Although this is obviously unfortunate news, I am choosing to see the positive in it. I, and X as a band, have supported the Sweet Relief charity since the mid-1990’s; the irony of this is not lost on any of us. Sweet Relief was started as an aide to uninsured artists by musician Victoria Williams when she herself was diagnosed with MS in 1992.

While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current X U.S. tour, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records.

My focus will certainly be on maintaining my health--many people remain strong and continue to live their lives as productively as they had before an MS diagnosis and I plan to be one of those people.
