Alternative Press reported on Thursday that Jake McQueary, the onetime vocalist for Detroit's Take the Ark, "was hospitalized recently and is paralyzed from the chest down due to a terrible spinal condition called transverse myelitis."
There's a GoFundMe page for the 23-year-old metalcore growler, one that explains the condition and confirms that McQueary is out of the intensive care unit. The situation remains dire:
"The main reason why we are doing this go fund me is because he is the sole provider for his family of four. Without him his girlfriend and children may lose their place they call home. Every dollar helps. Please spread the word and prayers to get Jake better so he can go home to his family."
Donate to Jake McQueary and his family here; the page has so far raised $1,422 of its $25,000 goal.
