Corsica Studios co-founder diagnosed with rare form of cancer

Amanda Moss launches fundraising appeal for treatment...

The brains behind one London’s best loved venues Corsica Studios has been diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer.

Amanda Moss has been diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer that isn’t treatable on the NHS — so must travel to Germany for treatment which costs £100,000.

She is calling on the arts and music community to help raise £100,000 for an 8-week treatment course in Germany.

“Unfortunately last year I was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer and I am now facing a serious battle to try and overcome this disease,” explains Moss in a heartfelt letter written on her Gofundme page.

“My best hope seems to lie in a combination of treatments offered by a clinic in Germany and I'm now trying to raise enough money to pay for this as unfortunately these treatments are not available in the UK.”

As someone who has dedicated almost all of her working life to the arts, she’s asking the music community to donate what they can so she can continue the fight — and the music community haven’t disappointed, raising just under a third of the money in just 19 days.

But there’s still some way to go to reach the £100,000 target with just 10 days to go.

“My partner and I have dedicated over twenty years of our lives to creating spaces where people can come together and enjoy art and music, where they can dance, celebrate, enjoy life and fall in love.

“It is time now to ask if you can give something back to help us in facing our biggest challenge yet.”
