Mick Karn and cancer... I didn't want to read that today. And to our Mick. God bless him. We don't want to lose him. Please think of Mick today and tomorrow and every day until we read he is well. Thank you.

Please read the news on mickkarn.net and leave messages for Mick in the guestbook there.

"With great sadness we regret to inform you that Mick has recently been diagnosed with advanced stages of cancer. Mick is currently in positive mood and undergoing further tests and treatment. His family and friends are close with him, supporting him in practical ways, and surrounding him with their love, friendship and care.

Mick has been struggling financially for some considerable time now and we are hoping that this appeal may help to raise funds for any necessary treatment and perhaps go some way towards providing a small degree of financial support whilst Mick's immediate family provide the care and comfort we would all wish for him. We are hoping that his friends, fans and musical colleagues will, over the coming months, offer any support they feel capable of giving. Quite aside from the sheer brunt of daunting medically-related costs, Mick's clear and major concern is for the security and well being of his wife and young son.

If you would like to make a donation whether as an individual or as a group, you can do so via the paypal link at http://www.mickkarn.net/ which has been set up for this sole and express purpose. Any support you are able to give, no matter how small, could make a difference in helping Mick cope during this difficult period. His friends will be looking at a variety of ways to raise funds.

If you would simply like to leave your kind messages of support for Mick, please do so at http://www.mickkarn.net/Pages/Message.htm

We will keep you all updated as often as we can.

Please do note that news is released with Mick's full approval."

AMEN to that Missouriman.

I am in shock. Really. I'm praying harder than I ever have that OUR Mick finds the energy and strength to fight this dreadful disease. He is truly the greatest bass player of his generation. He deserves all the love and support we can give him right now. Please try to help out if you possibly can. I want to take the opportunity now of "rallying the troops": if you can get to London on 24th July to attend the Nightporter Party PLEASE DO SO as Paul has announced on the Nightporter site that
ALL PROFITS WILL GO TO
THE MICK KARN FUND.

God Bless you Mick xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
