Dear Urarv Fans,
As some of you might have heard already, our beloved drummer, Trish was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. This has been quite a shock to all of us. We of course stand by her as a band through these trying times, and we want to aid her in this battle as much as we can.

However we can not win this battle alone. Much of this process is covered by the state, but there will be expenses for some medicine and there might be costs regarding surgical reconstruction and other challenges during these hard times. Therefore we would like to ask YOU to help Trish and help Urarv fight cancer.

We have started a fundraiser, where you can donate an amount of your choice to help her cover the expenses of the coming surgical procedures. Right now we're still uncertain what the actual costs will be, but we are aiming to collect 20 000 nok (~2 000 euro). In case this amount will be more than sufficient to cover her treatment, we shall donate the rest to support research on breast cancer.

As of now, Urarv has 4147 followers on Facebook. If each one of you donated 5 nok, we could easily raise the needed amount, but we know this is not how it works. We appreciate any donations made to any organization that funds the research on cancer.

We appreciate any help you can give us!

Bad news from Trish:
"This is really terrible news. Probably worst in my life, in addition to all the other tragedies and deaths and injuries and abuse and theft and pain and other health problems.

I am in the unlucky 0.1-0.2% of the population to have a rare genetic mutation which causes cancer (BRC1). So therefore I have 50% chance of subsequent breast cancer and also nearly that high odds of ovarian cancer as well.

So the surgeon strongly recommends to do a double masectomy, to reduce the odds of future cancer spreading and more surgeries and death. This is gonna lead to the worst pain imaginable and not being able to use my arms for 6 weeks.

Anyone who wants to visit me in hospital I will be there several days from December 5. And then at home and anyone who feels like helping with anything at all (even something small like putting dishes out of the dishwasher, carrying groceries from the store) it is greatly appreciated as I will not be able to do such things myself for minimum 6 weeks and literally have no-one to help with this.....

One weird and interesting fact is this gene is often correlated to higher intelligence, so that's why it has evolved as somewhat "beneficial" in that way. So even though these people's lives are shortened with quality worsened going through a lot of pain and suffering, at least they are able to accomplish successful educations and careers in the little healthy time they have while alive..."
