extremely important!

"Our good friend Sarah Kirsch was diagnosed over summer with Fanconi Anemia - a rare genetic disorder that causes Leukemia & other cancers. Despite being put through the ‘fn ringer by chemotherapy and long hospital stays, Sarah is staying strong and fighting hard, finally out of the hospital and at home with her amazing partner Jess and loving caregivers, Paul and Ilya.

Aside from the unconditional emotional and physical support Sarah has received from her devoted extended family, donations to date have been enormously helpful in lightening the financial burden of this kind of illness. The demand for supplies not covered by insurance is, however, unending - from food to cleaning supplies to lotion to kleenex to parking at the hospital…

If you’re able and would like to contribute in this way, please check out our Wepay account below. There is no donation too small, every $ helps.
Please donate if you can to help a dear friend who changed my life. But first I want to take a minute to say that even if you don’t recognize this name, you may know Sarah. She has been a huge part of the punk/activist community for decades as Mike Kirsch (Fuel, Sawhorse, Pinhead Gunpowder, John Henry West, Torches To Rome, Bread And Circuits, Please Inform The Captain This Is A Hijack, Baader Brains, Mothercountry Motherfuckers, etc….). She not too long ago came out as a proud trans-woman, and almost immediately was confronted with these terrible health problems. Money is badly needed— please help!"  

kirsch  has been in so fucking many bands that were influential to me while growing up….shes given so much to our community, id like to give whatever i can back……..i cant image the pain, stress and anxiety her freinds must be going through right now…..please donate if you can
