A statement just released by 97.5 The Fanatic:

Darren Daulton has not been feeling well over the past two weeks. He went to the doctor who discovered two brain tumors and is scheduled for surgery early next week.  Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time. Of course we want to respect his privacy at a time like this, but if you would like to send him get well wishes you may do so at dutch@975thefanatic.com.

I imagine that email server will be crashed with well wishes.

UPDATE: Vai Sikahema is reporting that Dutch is in intensive care at Jefferson, and that one of his tumors is inoperable.
