Hace poco más de un año, nuestro querido amigo Ernesto Tamayo fue diagnosticado con un tumor cerebral. Ernesto rebasó la operación que se le hiciera en ese momento y el duro tratamiento que siguió a la misma, y durante meses pareció volver a ser el mismo de antes. Pero, desafortunadamente, hace unas cuatro semanas, Ernesto volvió al hospital. En estos momentos se encuentra en el Tate Hospice House, 817 South Camp Meade Rd, Linthicum, Maryland, y puede morir en cualquier momento. Ernesto no tiene familiares en los Estados Unidos. Durante las últimas semanas muchos amigos han estado pendientes de él y lo han visitado. También se han hecho gestiones para que sus padres puedan venir de Cuba a acompañarlo durante sus últimos días. Con ese fin hemos creado este fondo para cubrir los gastos de su viaje, su estancia en los Estados Unidos y los gastos del funeral. Ellos necesitan de nuestra ayuda en estos momentos tan difíciles. ¡Gracias de antemano por cualquier donación que puedan hacer a este fondo!

Just over a year ago, our dear friend Ernesto Tamayo was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Ernesto recuperated quite well from the surgery and the treatment that followed, and carried on with his normal life for several months. Unfortunately, about four weeks ago, Ernesto’s condition deteriorated and he returned to the hospital. He is in the Tate Hospice House, 817 South Camp Meade Rd, Linthicum, Maryland, and can die at any moment. Ernesto has no family in the United States. In recent weeks, many friends have visited and accompanied him. We have also made arrangements for his parents to come from Cuba to be with him during his last days. We have created this fund to cover the cost of their trip, their stay in the United States, and the funeral expenses. They need our support in this difficult time. Thank you in advance for any donation you can make to this fund!

Queridos amigos: Algunas personas me han preguntado dónde pueden adquirir discos de Ernesto Tamayo, ya que algunos de sus CDs están agotados en Amazon. Les quería dejar saber que cuando Ernesto fue llevado al hospital la primavera pasada, se encontraron dos cajas de CDs suyos en su apartamento. Es imposible enviar esos CDs a Cuba, donde se encuentra Ernesto en estos momentos, así que si alguien está interesado en comprar algún CD, se puede comunicar directamente conmigo escribiéndome a mi dirección de correo electrónico: madelca@aol.com. Cualquier dinero recaudado será enviado a los padres de Ernesto en Cuba. Muchas gracias, Madelca

Dear friends: Some people have asked me where they can buy Ernesto Tamayo’s CDs since some of them are no longer available on Amazon. I just want to let you know that when Ernesto was taken to the hospital last Spring, two boxes of his CDs were found in his apartment. It is impossible to send these CDs to Cuba, where Ernesto is right now, so if anyone is interested in purchasing a CD, you can send me an e-mail. The address is madelca@aol.com. Any money raised will be sent to Ernesto’s parents in Cuba. Best regards, Madelca

Continuing to pray for Ernesto without knowing if he is still with us. His talent and humanity will never be forgotten. Hoping his parents are with him in the US or in Cuba.

We recently had a good friend of ours die of a brain tumor, so we know just how hard this can be on Ernesto, his family and friends. We're hoping he can battle his way out of this terrible illness so he can continue his passion for music.
