”Please send healing vibes for my son, Jeremiah Green, who is battling stage 4 cancer. He’s is so strong and so brave and hanging in there!” Namatame wrote on the social media platform, alongside a series of photos of Green from his career and personal life.
The type of cancer was not disclosed, and Green, at this stage, has not commented on the matter.
Green is one of the founding members of the rock band Modest Mouse, which was formed in Washington State in 1992 alongside singer and guitarist Isaac Brock, and bassist Eric Judy. They are now based in Portland, Oregon.

Veteran American radio star Marco Collins also commented on Green’s diagnosis on his social media, revealing Green had “pulled out of the band’s tour” in order to undergo treatment.
“Just found out my friend Jeremiah Green pulled off the band’s tour b/c he is undergoing chemo to battle Stage 4 Cancer,” Collins wrote on Twitter hours after Namatame’s post.
“Despite having a stage 4 diagnosis, his prognosis is good! His oncologist is a big MM fan (so he’s got that in his corner!) Sending ❤️❤️!!”

Green did perform in the tour’s early dates, however, pulled out of recent ones in order to undergo chemotherapy.
The band is next set to perform at Lollapalooza in Argentina in March.
Green has only been absent from the band since their formation one other time, between 2003 and 2004, meaning he does not feature in their album Good News For People Who Love Bad News.
