On October 22, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard's band, Calpurnia, uploaded an Instagram post about a GoFundMe page for their manager, Adam, who is in need of a stem cell transplant.


First of all, this is the Instagram post by Finn's band, Calpurnia:


"Hi All, our dear manager and friend Adam (we call him Bix) is currently undergoing a risky Stem Cell Transplant to fight his Myelofibrosis, a rare and aggressive blood cancer. His incredible daughter Quinn has set up a GoFundMe to help fund his lengthy hospital stay and treatment."

"It would mean the world to us if you considered donating to the gofundme to help Bix and his family. Please follow the link in our bio to give and share, any bit helps ❤️." 


This post is echoed by other members of the band.


I "Helping Bix out means more to me than just about anything I can think of at the moment. Please [...] help Bix kick cancer’s awful ass." - Jack Anderson (bass)

"Even incredibly strong people need a little help sometimes! [...] Pardon my French, but f**k cancer!! Let’s give Bix one less thing to worry about ❤️❤️." Ayla Tesler-Mabe (lead guitar, vocals)


Currently, Finn, Ayla and Jack have the GoFundMe page link on their Instagram bio.



Who exactly set up the GoFundMe page?


The GoFundMe page was set up by Adam's (Bix) daughter, Quinn, on September 8.


According to Quinn, Adam's daughter, he went to the hospital on October 3 for the "risky stem cell transplant" to attempt to cure his cancer, with a chance that he'll "eventually reach full remission".

However, his insurance won't cover the medical costs and Adam will be out of work for up to a year as he recovers. The donations will go towards medical bills and aid Adam and his family throughout this period of difficulty.



How is the GoFundMe doing?


According to donations' history, over $8,200 was donated from September 8 to October 22. On October 22, Calpurnia and its band members posted on Instagram about the GoFundMe. 

With the support of Calpurnia and its members, donations increased significantly. At the time of writing, the GoFundMe has raised $32,665 out of its $65,000 target.

Furthermore, donations were made under these names*:



Finn Wolfhard: $1000- a day ago

Ayla Tesler-Mabe - $1000 2 days ago

Jack Anderson $500 - 2 days ago



*Please note that these donations were made under those specific names. It may or may not be the actual members of Calpurnia.
