Modest Mouse confirmed Green’s diagnosis in late December, several days after she began spreading the word on social media. She died just a few days later.
I don’t know of a way to make this easier – today we lost our dear friend Jeremiah,” Modest Mouse wrote a few days after announcing that Green was undergoing treatment. He lay down to rest and just passed out. I’d like to say a lot of nice words on this the time, but it’s just not the time. These will come later, and from many people. Please appreciate all the love you give, receive, have given, and will receive. Above all else, Jeremiah was about love. We love you
