On Jan. 11, Zach Johnson wrote on Twitter announcing he was about to undergo his eighth surgery. He’s hoping eight is enough and that he won’t have to go under the knife yet again:
Surgery 8 today. Should be the last, and the last time with a shitty IV. Have a good day! pic.twitter.com/iVKwfNIclH

As for Andrew Tkaczyk, he’s still in the hospital as well. On Jan. 7, he sent out a picture via Instagram showing fans the view from outside his room:
During the holidays, Funko actually sent Andrew a bunch of awesome toys to see him through his recovery:
The incredible GoFundMe page set up for The Ghost Inside’s medical bills has just exceeded its overall goal of $150,000. However, you can still donate at the page if you choose. Another way to directly aid the band members is to buy their music. Epitaph Records announced they’d be giving the band all proceeds from record sales for the foreseeable future.
