Danny Hicks has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer.
Most of us will remember Danny as the great character of ‘Jake’ in the Horror/Comedy classic “Evil Dead II”, it’s the film that introduced me to Danny Hicks. This is very, very sad news to hear, Hicks posted a statement via Facebook:
“To all of the people that I never got to meet, and the 6,018 die hard fans that enjoyed my work. I have some bad news. I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live. But I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years. I got no change coming back that’s for sure. And not too many regrets. Ok, gotta go. I’m gunna find out just what in the hell is going on down in that fruit cellar.”
A GoFundMe has been setup for him to help pay medical expenses by Dominic Mancini of Full Moon Promotions who’s also selling Danny Hicks signed photos through his website to also help raise funds!
