Dave Mustaine daughter talks about her father’s Cancer

Electra Mustaine, daughter of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, posted a message on twitter supporting her father, who was diagnosed with throat cancer.


The 21-year-old post two photos of Dave, one of them when she was still a baby. In the caption, Electra wrote:

“I would do and give anything for this man. Dad… I love you so so much. You‘ve taught me what love should look like, taught me reliability, perseverance, commitment….and mostly, strength. On days when you can’t, I will give you mine.”

Dave Mustaine recently revealed that he was diagnosed with throat cancer:

“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.”
“Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.”
“Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.”
“I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more.”
“I’ll keep everyone posted.”
“See you soon,
Dave Mustaine”
