Allen Shellenberger, drummer for Orange County’s Platinum rock band Lit, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor earlier this month.
After biopsy, it was discovered that Shellenberger’s cancer is malignant glioma ‑ a type of primary central nervous system tumor that usually occurs in the brain.
At only 38 years old, he is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments with world-renowned neurosurgeons at the Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute.
This is the same type of cancer Senator Edward M. Kennedy is battling.
On Wednesday, Shellenberger was interviewed for ABC's World News Tonight, shown below.
