Lincoln ‘Warchild’ Russell passes away after battle with CIDP [News/Tribute]
Toronto, ON – We are sad to post about the loss of a member of the Toronto community, Lincoln “Warchild” Russell, who passed away a few days ago after a tough battle with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP). Lincoln, a celebrated actor, personal trainer and martial artist was highly respected in the scene and gave a lot back to the community. This past December, Director X presented The Lincoln Rising’s Fundraiser Dinner & Birthday Party to raise money to help cover the cost of the vast expenses associated with treating CIDP. Although the Canadian health care system had benefitted Lincoln through his struggle, it did not cover all expenses. The Lincoln Rising was formed to aid Lincoln with expenses incurred by the restructuring of his everyday life. The event brought out a ton of well-known names in support including, to name a few, Kardinal Offishall, Aion Clarke, Noah “40” Shebib and Drake, who can be seen with Lincoln in the photo below. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Russell family in this trying time.
