Paranormal investigator Ryan Buell is battling pancreatic cancer, People reports.

Buell, 30, stars on the A&E series “Paranormal State,” founded the Paranormal Research Society, and wrote a memoir called Paranormal State: My Journey Into the Unknown in 2010.

The TV star has been speaking out about his illness on his Facebook page, where thousands of fans have shown their support (as of Wednesday his page had 82,000 “Likes” and counting).

A PRS staff member updated fans on Buell’s condition Monday with this Facebook wall post.

“Everyone, as you know Ryan was in the hospital due to complications with his kidneys. Because his body is already a little weak, it has taken him longer to recover … His kidney health has deteriorated due to the strain. We are asking for everyone to take 5 minutes at noon EST to focus on a white light of energy and healing around Ryan while he receives a small treatment that could help his kidneys heal rapidly.”
