This is heartbreaking news. I hope there is a treatment that will help him and bring him back to health.

Steve has also posted the information at his site:

"Mick has been diagnosed with advance stages of cancer and an appeal has been launched at his website to help raise funds for treatment and care. View here

In an effort to help with this appeal the proceeds from any Karn portrait purchased from Steve's collection will be donated towards it. View the collection here"

Burning Shed are auctioning a couple of copies of the very rare Red edition of Porcupine Tree's 'Anesthetize' box set in order to raise some money for Mick.

:((((

from robbie aceto:
"hello friends;
i'm very sorry to use this blind-copy method to reach you all andplease forgive in advance the form letter-form of this letter. It is a lot of information to have to put out...
i'm sorry to tell you: my dear friend, musical compatriot, and extraordinary musician mick karn, has been stri...cken with cancer; the cancer is in Stage 4, having already metastasised through his brain, lungs, stomach & intestines.

mick, with his wife kyoko & young son, metis, live in cyprus; their financial resources are very, very slender..... at best. so, we have set up a fund to help him, and to assist w/his family's future.

the PayPal fund is available, here:

http://www.mickkarn.net/

feel free to post this url on your websites, and etc: whatever you think might help us help mick and the karn family. meanwhile, mick is somehow still lucid, warm & good-humored; he's remained more than a little positive, in both attitude & spirit.
thanks for reading.

ps: for those of you who aren't familiar with mick's music & sculpture, i hope you'll investigate further.

It sounds like this will be over very soon if indeed it has metastasized as they say... He must have had this cancer for some time. My thoughts are with you Mick and your family. We love you.

I wonder if DS will feel he has to do anything? A benefit gig maybe? is there even a statement on his site other than the copy and paste from Mick's?

Nothing I've heard of from Sylvian so far, not even on his site. He may be doing something privately but it might encourage others to donate is he were to do or say something publically.

I very much doubt Sylvian would post anything in relation to this on a public forum. I'm sure anything he wants to say to MicK will be done privately.
