Richard Swift's Facebook page revealed yesterday (19 June) that the musician has been in hospital "due to a serious medical condition".

The multi-instrumentalist and former Shins member is without medical insurance, but has been recovering in Tacoma Washington with "excellent care".

His Facebook page also launched a GoFundMe campaign to help with the steep medical costs. The goal is $100,000.

Co-founder of Secretly Group, Chris Swanson, also showed his support on Twitter, stating "He’s fighting v hard."

The GoFundMe page has already raised a quarter of the final amount. You can donate here.
