"The road ahead is not going to be easy but cancer has met its match and I plan to continue fighting," Banali said. "I wish I could have been with you all at every Quiet Riot performance as this is the first time in 38 years I have ever missed a gig.
"Please know that if I had been able to fly on a plane and play a show nothing else would have stopped me. I am feeling much better and stronger now."
Banali said he plans to perform Oct. 26 with Quiet Riot at the band's show at Whiskey A Go Go in West Hollywood, California, and will continue touring with them in 2020.
"I appreciate all the fans that support Quiet Riot by coming to shows and I hope you will all continue that support as well as keeping me in your thoughts and prayers," he said.
