The Psychedelic Furs guitarist John Ashton is battling stage four prostate cancer, and musician Gail Anne Dorsey is asking folks for help with his treatment. Dorsey revealed Ashton’s diagnosis on a GoFundMe page, explaining the 62-year-old was diagnosed in June, and it has now spread to his lymph nodes.
"Surgery is not an option. He has just begun what will be an indefinite series of treatments involving radiation, hormone therapies, and possibly access to clinical trials through Sloan Kettering in New York City," the page reads, with Dorsey noting she wants her friend to be “free of stress” and worries, so she’s asking for help.
So far the fundraiser has raised $62,000 of its intended $100K goal.
