    Austin Carlile, lead singer of rock band Of Mice & Men, recently spent four weeks in the hospital. His medical treatment came not long after his band's enormously successful summer tour with Slipknot.

    During the band's European tour in October, Carlile was hospitalized again, with the remaining dates being cancelled as a result. The singer is still unable to perform, so the band also dropped off A Day To Remember's upcoming tour earlier this week.

    Following the announcement of cancelling their appearances at ADTR Australian tour this week, Carlile took to Twitter to share a message to his fans that were telling him to "get well soon", he simply said "I'll never get better" before expanding on the nature of his illness.

    The singer has faced a courageous battle with Marfan syndrome, a rare fibrotic connective tissue disorder. The disorder impacts Austin's daily life to an incredible extent; last year he required heart surgery, and later revealed that he was clinically dead for three hours.

    Despite the pain Carlile constantly faces, he has been quite vocal about his newfound devotion to god and it seems that has given him strength.
