A fine ottobre il drammatico annuncio via Facebook: Genesis P-Orridge malato di leucemia mielomonocitica cronica. Parte allora una raccolta fondi da parte dei fan via GoFundMe: Industrial music legend, cut-and-paste artist, and pandrogyne Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has leukemia and needs our help. Having canceled their upcoming tour with PTV3, they are flat broke, three months behind on rent, and undergoing chemo and constant testing. Gen is on oxygen, and unable to do much beyond getting to the hospital. Friends are visiting and contributing what we can, but the expenses keep growing. We want Gen to be warm and fed through the winter, and focused on hopefuly healing, not finances. The drugs are experimental, but promising. With continued therapy *and* low stress, Gen does not have to die from this, but could be back performing again sometime next year. Please help this now-broke but extraordinary and generous human being continue on with us as long as possible. Your contributions will all go to rent, food, and medicine.
Mentre l’artista ancora via social scrive accorato:
We know its hard for coum people to believe, but we are broke. No savings, no pension, an overdraft. And debts. We grew up being taught to be stoic and never admit we needed help nor ask for it.. .but we have hit a brick wall. We really DO need any and all help we can get. Please help if you possibly can…all we can offer in exchange is our creativity and our generosity of soul. Djin GEN
