Phil Elverum asks for help while his wife Geneviève Castrée (Woelv/Ô Paon) undergoes cancer treatments

Four months after her daughter was born, Geneviève Elverum (Geneviève Castrée/Woelv/Ô Paon) was diagnosed with “inoperable stage 4 pancreatic cancer.” Since then, Geneviève has been undergoing cancer treatments, which over the last year has prevented both her and her husband Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie/The Microphones) from working and has depleted much of their savings.

Phil is now asking for help through a GoFundMe campaign. Here is an excerpt, written by Phil:

We are asking the world to please donate money to us. Treatment is ongoing. Nobody in our household has been able to work for over a year. Geneviève has not made any new work. Phil has not made any music or been able to perform or do anything. Life is 100% occupied by this humongous medical battle (plus the already overwhelming reality of raising a baby with less than 2 fully available parents). We don’t know what the future holds and how long this uncertainty will last. In any case, the amount we’ve spent over the last year alone has left us in a precarious financial position as a family.
