Helm ‘in the final stages of his battle with cancer’

Levon, the legendary drummer for The Band, “is in the final stages of his battle with cancer,” his family said on Facebook.

In a statement, Helm’s daughter, Amy, and wife, Sandy, wrote:

Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey. …

Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage…

We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
