Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt took to Facebook yesterday to publicly announce to fans that his wife, Brittney Dirnt, is currently being treated for breast cancer. 

In the post on the band’s official page, Dirnt writes:

Dear Green Day Family,

Recently my wife Brittney was diagnosed with breast cancer.

We have started our battle and she is enduring treatment as we speak! We want you to know that
Brittney (Batmansmom) is strong and with the help of Amazing doctors, support from family, and positive thoughts/prayers from our Green Day family, SHE WILL BEAT THIS!
This is going to be a challenging year, but we are determined to get though this as quickly and
openly as possible.

We love you all, and we will be checking in as best as we can, via Instagram: @batmansmom @mike_dossxx and

Rage and Love
Mike and Britt


According to InStyle, Mike Dirnt met Brittney Cade in 2004 when she was working as a hostess at L.A.’s Sushi Roki restaurant. The two were friends for a year and a half before they began dating. In 2007, Dirnt proposed to Cade and the two were married in March of 2009 at a private ceremony. The couple has two children: Brixton, 5, and Ryan, 3.

We wish Mike and Brittney the very best as they go through their fight together.
