Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

$54,336 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 1,404 people in 8 months
Created November 27, 2017
Thanks to the extreme enthusiasm of Gen's fans, we quickly reached our original emergency goal of $10,000, and are now increasing the goal to $30,000, which will allow Gen to rent things like a portable oxygen condensor so they can go outside, get herbs and nutrients that aren't covered under Medicaid, and to know everything is covered through this spring. 

In case you are just getting here:

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.

Gen is overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone. Many people are sending us messages asking us to increase the goal. There's a lot of love for Gen that really wants to express itself. And it's not like additional funds would be spent on anything other than rent, food, medical supplies, and debts.

The ongoing expensive ticket items, like nutrients and organic detoxing foods, do cost a lot.

So I'm going to put the goal up to 50,000 as a final number. I don't want to make Gen appear greedy - they are not! - but I don't want to deny them funds because I underestimated the level of support they'd receive from the world.

Wow. We reached our initial goal in less than one day. You are fabulous humans. The $10,000 target was actually an arbitrary number. I figured it's what Gen needs to pay the back rent, and then make it through to spring.

Of course, everyone is welcome to keep giving past the original goal, which could actually get Gen through the whole first round of chemo and hopefully into recovery.

Love to all.
