Genesis Breyer P-Orridge leukemia fund set up

The Psychic TV founder and ex-Throbbing Gristle member, who was diagnosed with cancer in October, requires money for medical equipment and rent

Following a recent diagnosis of leukemia, a crowdfunding campaign has been launched to help Genesis Breyer P-Orridge with financial difficulties.

“Having cancelled their upcoming tour with PTV3, they are flat broke, three months behind on rent, and undergoing chemo and constant testing,” says the fundraising page. “Gen is on oxygen, and unable to do much beyond getting to the hospital.

“The money they say will go toward the rental of medical equipment such as a portable oxygen condenser as well as “herbs and nutrients that aren't covered under Medicaid””.

At the time of writing the fund has raised $33,276. Donation can be made via
