Eli Young Band Starts Go Fund Me For Crew Member With Cancer

Members of Eli Young Band have started a Go Fund Me account, for crew member, Elias “Chief” Gonzales, who has been battling Follicular Lymphatic cancer for several years.

The band stated: “He has been part of our road family and crew since the very early days, since before we had enough people to call it a “crew.” Over the years he held every position imaginable from merch, to guitar tech, tour manager, and even drove the bus a few times….. anything we have ever needed, he has been the guy.”

They went on to say: “He and his family need our help to make sure that his time left on this earth is not spent worrying about the financial side of this thing and what comes next for his family and children. Anything helps.”

Chief is at home with his four children, his parents and family making the most of the time he has left before beginning hospice care. The Eli Young Band has set up a Go Fund Me link on their socials, if you’d like to help.
