Did Paul Ryder die from cancer just hours before a concert?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Paul Ryder Died From Cancer – Rhabdomyosarcoma
A number of rumour / fake news blogs have tried to capitalise on Paul Ryder’s sudden death by falsely claiming that he died from cancer – rhabdomyosarcoma – on the day of his concert.
Vimbuzz : Paul Ryder Family: Wife, Children, Parents, Siblings
English musician Paul Anthony Ryder has given up his breath at the age of 58. He breathed his last on July 15, 2022, from the disease of rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, according to reports.
The Post (India) : Paul Ryder died at the age of 58 after battling cancer, specifically rhabdomyosarcoma.
Truth : Paul Ryder Did Not Die From Cancer!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS that some websites create for more page views and money, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Paul Ryder Died On July 15, 2022
First, let us establish what is known so far about Paul Ryder’s death, which isn’t much.
His brother and frontman of the band Happy Mondays, Shaun Ryder, announced that he died on the morning of July 15, 2022.
The Ryder family and Happy Mondays band members are deeply saddened and shocked to say that Paul Ryder passed away this morning
A true pioneer and legend. He will be forever missed ❤️
We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.
Long live his funk x
Fact #2 : Paul Ryder Died Hours Before Show
While Paul Ryder was a heroin addict for over 20 years, he claimed that he never suffered any adverse effect until he was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 :
I was a heroin addict for 20-odd years, but there’s been no damage off that. I’ve never had anything wrong with me until I was 53.
He was also scheduled to play on the day he died, at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland. That suggests that he was not sick, and was healthy enough to play.
But that didn’t stop anti-vaccination activists and rumour blogs from claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact #3 : Paul Ryder’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown
Paul Ryder’s family and band only announced his death, but did not mention a cause of death. That means NO ONE KNOWS (at this time) what he died from.
Let me be clear – his cause of death was not revealed. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”.
Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Paul Ryder died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.
Fact #4 : Rhabdomyosarcoma Is Rare In Adults
Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare soft tissue cancer that can occur at any age, but most often affects children.
In fact, it is generally considered to be a childhood cancer, with the vast majority of cases occurring in children below 18 years of age, and more than half in children younger than 10 years old.
Fact #5 : Rhabdomyosarcoma Is Highly Aggressive
Rhabdomyosarcoma is highly aggressive, with a 5-year survival rate of 61% for children, and only 27% for adults!
If Paul Ryder had rhabdomyosarcoma, you can be sure he wouldn’t be preparing to play at a concert!
Fact #6 : It Was His Son Who Suffered From Rhabdomyosarcoma
It was not Paul Ryder who suffered from cancer, but his son – Chico, who was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma on December 28, 2012 – almost 10 years ago!
Chico was 6 years old when he had a sore throat and a swelling on his neck, and became very ill just 5 days before Christmas 2012.
He was admitted to the hospitals for tests, and three days later – the diagnosis came back. Chico was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma on December 28, 2012.
In 2020, it was revealed that Chico survived and had been in remission for over 2.5 years.
The rumour blogs probably misread the story when they copied and pasted the information, or they saw that “cancer” and “rhabdomyosarcoma” ranked highly for Paul Ryder and decided to capitalise on those keywords.
Fact #7 : None Of Them Offered Any Evidence
Even if we ignore the fact that Paul Ryder’s family never said publicly that he was suffering from cancer, never mind the same rhabdomyosarcoma that afflicted his son, there is simply no evidence he was suffering from cancer.
He was certainly well enough to prepare to play at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland, the day he died.
None of the websites that claimed Paul Ryder died from cancer / rhabdomyosarcoma, offered anything remotely close to “evidence”.
One of them – Vimbuzz, is famous for creating nonsense articles about celebrities. Recently, they falsely claimed that a source told them Danielle Hampson died in a car accident!
Every mainstream media covering the story is saying the same thing – Paul Ryder’s cause of death remained unknown. If he died from cancer, they would have mentioned it.
Until we know for certain – we cannot simply jump to conclusions… or fall for the fake news / fake videos created by people whose only motivation is to make money from your views and clicks.
