This just in from the Decyfer Down camp. Please keep them in your prayers...

"Dear Friends,

As many of you know, the members of Decyfer Down have come across some life threatening battles in the last month, and with numerous inquiries about such, we thought we would let all of you know about such at the same time.

On April 21, guitarist Chris Clonts and his wife Meghan welcomed Christopher Hayden Clonts into the world. Shortly after their son’s birth, Meghan became extremely ill and the doctors found she had a severe infection that caused her to be away from her newborn for days at a time. After three weeks in quarantine, Meghan was treated and released from the hospital and is now happy and healthy with her husband and son.

The day after Meghan was released from the hospital, Josh Oliver, drummer of Decyfer Down, and his wife Victoria received some devastating news. Victoria was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. Thankfully, the doctors caught it early enough so that it didn’t spread to any other parts of her body. The tumor is located between her lungs and heart and is the size of a softball. Due to the fragile location of the tumor, the doctors are unable to operate, so Victoria has started chemotherapy treatments for a period of 18 weeks. Making matters even more difficult they were denied health insurance coverage.

Throughout this time, the band has received an outpouring of letters and emails from fans who have expressed their sympathies and prayers for the band and their families.

“I am graciously thankful and humbled by the outpouring of love and support for my family and for the Decyfer Down family,” says Josh Oliver. “Please continue to keep us in prayer and we will keep you updated via the band’s myspace and website.”

We ask that you please keep Josh and Victoria in your prayers, and if you, or your readers would like to know about how to donate or send gifts, you may do so by visiting where you an also check on her progress."
