Maynard J Keenan took to Twitter to post the message; he wished Jen Lei Li happy birthday and shared that she has been fighting cancer for the past few years. Maynard wrote,
"Today is my wife’s Birthday. #licoricelust I’m going to guess that it will be viewed as her favorite. In late Nov she felt a lump in her breast. On X-mas eve, she was diagnosed with cancer. She didn’t collapse into a pile of self-pity. She didn’t launch into an entitlement rage."

The singer continued,
"had our friend Brook make her a wig to match. And then she went to work. No one was the wiser. She’s successfully navigated both the chemo and the surgery and now begins the radiation. And all without whining or bitching. She is my rock. She is my muse. She is my ALL. Be like Jen. Happy Birthday, My Love. Cheers to this one and many more."
