Cortz is a long-time member of the Melt Records team, as he plays in both Sunday Sunday and The Family Is Under Attack. Recently, he was diagnosed with a very serious condition known as Cervical Myelopathy, a disorder resulting from the compression of the spinal cord in the cervical spine characterized by neck pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.This condition has greatly hampered his physical mobility and if left untreated might deteriorate even further. Spine decompression surgery, which is an essential part of the treatment, could cost up to P700,000.
