Good news! The Decemberists' keyboardist Jenny Conlee is in remission. Conlee announced that she had breast cancer earlier this year, to the chagrin of fans.
"For those of you wondering, saw Jenny this week; our girl's officially in remission! #teamjenny #beyondchemodrome," the band's singer Colin Meloy tweeted at the end of last week.
"I will try to get into surgery as soon as I can after we return from this leg of the tour so I can begin my recovery," Conlee said to fans in May when her diagnosis was announced. "There are still a few unknowns out there concerning my cancer, but I am thinking positive and hope to be back on the road soon. Thanks for all of your support!"
We're so glad to hear that Jenny is better! Such great news.
