It's very tragic.

Haydain survived a terrible accident on his Vespa scooter, battling hard while in critical condition, and once he started to show great improvements he was diagnosed with lung cancer.

It's the cancer that took his life.

39 is too young.

Was he a smoker? Did his family have a history of cancer?

Saw him perform in Ottawa at the Parliament buildings for Canada day about 10 years ago. Too young to die RIP

Must have been the ganga - worse than smokes for lung cancer. So foolish....

Oh no! I saw him open for Jann Arden @ Massey Hall yrs. ago. Always liked him.

Actually, he wasn't a smoker. It's honestly a shame what happened... I really do hope his family is doing well through these times.
