STATEMENT FROM EXENE
CERVENKA OF X:
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
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.
