Carole Pope Recovery Fund

$9,765 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 130 people in 19 days
Created January 3, 2019
Dear Friends and Fans of the Anti-Diva herself,

Carole has entertained us for decades as a solo performer, a member of Rough Trade, a writer, an activist and all-around role model, but now she needs OUR support. Carole began having mobility problems on her last tour, eventually forcing her to stop performing last summer so she could undergo very delicate Spinal Stenosis Surgery. While the surgery was a success, Carole has had to undergo months of expensive and rigorous physical therapy and has therefore been unable to work or even be very mobile since the operation. She still needs to continue with therapy for another 4-6 months to allow for a full recovery before she’s able to work again to support herself.


Mounting medical bills and living expenses have drained her financial resources and we estimate she’ll need to make up a deficit of about $10,000 to make it though the next few months.


If, like me, you’ve been a fan of Carole’s through the many twists and turns of her fascinating and at times shocking career, please help me in donating funds to help her bridge the gap until she can start performing for us all again. Birds of a feather still flock together.

Hey everyone... thanks SO much for the amazing outpouring of love, support and help. Carole and I finally had a chance to sit down and chat this morning. She talks about her surgery and recovery along with about future plans to tour and write and her up-coming single. OH... there's a weird jump in the middle when the video cut off when I got a text... and since I've been watching pretty much nothing but old Noir classic horror and crime movies, I shot this like a film noir.

Here's the video and Carole wanted me to repeat just how much she's touched by the love and support she's received.

Carole and I will be sitting down early next week to do a bit of a video chat so she can update us on what's she's planning career-wise and how her recovery is coming. She's very touched and taken by surprise by the support and the messages of hope and support she's received. She's also not lost her sense of humour about her physical therapy, but I'll let her tell you about that when we meet up.

I again want to thank everyone for their shares, their donations and their comments.

For those of you who missed her most recent single Resist It with Kevin Hearn, here's the rather amazing lyric video for it. I didn't direct this one, it was done by the amazing Philip Harder, but hope to work with her again soon.

I wanted to thank everyone for their very generous support so far. A couple people have reached out asking for proof that the funds are going directly to Carole. I’m going to get her to prepare a message here the GoFundMe page itself, but she’s shared this on her Facebook page, personal Facebook, and Twitter accounts. I really do appreciate the outpouring of support and messages and so does Carole.

I’m sure most of you have seen it, but for those who asked what she’s been doing musically lately, here’s the video I directed for her song This Is Not A Test.
