Octavio Brunetti

$34,862 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 380 people in 52 months

Our friend OCTAVIO BRUNETTI has been in the hospital since August 3rd and is fighting a severe bacterial infection that is life-threatening. The doctors continue to search for the location of the infection and the cure, but so far they have not found it. Every hour counts for him, as every cent counts for his family, who will have to face huge medical bills. We decided to start this fundraising campaign so that we can all raise money and support Octavio's during this difficult time.

(Maestro Brunetti is a distinguished pianist, composer, arranger and educator from Argentina and based in New York. He’s traveled the world playing Argentine tango and his most recent concert was the Octavio Brunetti Tango Orchestra at the Midsummer Night Swing festival at Lincoln Center in this July).


Nuestro amigo OCTAVIO BRUNETTI ingreso a un hospital de NY el 3 de agosto y está luchando cada minuto por sobrevivir a una infección bacteriana muy severa. Los médicos siguen tratando de descubrir donde reside la infección, y como combatirla, pero no encuentran como curarlo todavía. Cada hora cuenta para él, y cada centavo cuenta para su familia, que debe afrontar enormes gastos médicos. Decidimos ofrecer este medio para que todos podamos ayudar a juntar esos fondos y sostener a la familia de Octavio para afrontar este momento tan difícil.

(El Maestro Brunetti es un destacado pianista, compositor, arreglador y docente argentino residente en NY; ha recorrido extensa parte del mundo llevando el tango argentino. El último trabajo realizado en NY fue dirigiendo su orquesta, en el festival "Midsummer Night Swing" en el Lincoln Center de NY en julio de este año).


Thank you for your love and support. Gracias por su amor y apoyo.

Dear all,
I would have liked to write good news, and I would have liked to see a miracle...
Octavio died peacefully this morning. We are all deeply sad for this loss, but he will be in our hearts forever.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all and each of you for your contributions, but especially for your love and compassion behind every cent of your donations. Also, I'd like to thank a few friends that were beside him and his family every minute: Adam Tully, Eduardo Parra, Guillermo Vaisman, Horacio Martinez, Sergio Reyes, Rodolfo Zanetti, Machiko Ozawa, Pedro Giraudo, Mariela Marco, Marta Serur, Olga...and so many other people that helped in one way or another.
I am sure that somehow, somewhere, he knows that each of you thought of him all this time, and you prayed for him and sent him all your best wishes.
Octavio's family is profoundly thankful for all this support.



Queridos todos,
Me hubiera gustado escribir buenas noticias, y me hubiera gustado ver un milagro...
Octavio fallecio pacificamente esta madrugada. Estamos profundamente tristes por esta perdida, pero sabemos que el va a estar en nuestros corazones para siempre.
Quiero aprovechar la oportunidad para agradecerles a todos y cada uno de Uds. por sus contribuciones, pero especialmente por el amor y compasion detras de cada centavo donado. Tambien, me gustaria agradecer a algunos de sus amigos que han estado a su lado y junto a su familia todo este tiempo: Adam Tully, Eduardo Parra, Guillermo Vaisman, Horacio Martinez, Sergio Reyes, Rodolfo Zanetti, Machiko Ozawa, Pedro Giraudo, Mariela Marco, Marta Serur, Olga...y a tantas otras personas que ayudaron de una manera u otra.
Estoy segura que de alguna manera, en algun lugar, el sabe que cada uno de Uds. ha pensado en el todo este tiempo, ha rezado y enviado sus mejores deseos.
La familia de Octavio esta profundamente agradecida por todo su apoyo.

Peace.
Paz.

Thank you so much to all those who contributed to this campaign so far!!! Octavio continues to struggle. Hopefully he will read everybody's good wishes soon.
We are so happy that we overpassed our initial goal so fast! However, nobody can estimate the cost of the medical attention he is receiving, so please continue your support in all the ways possible.
Best to all, and thank you!

Friends of the Brunetti Family

Gracias a todos los que han contribuido con esta campana hasta ahora. Octavio sigue luchando por recuperarse. Esperamos que pronto pueda leer los mensajes con buenos deseos que le han mandado. Es muy gratificante haber sobrepasado el objetivo tan pronto. Sin embargo, los costos de la atencion medica que esta recibiendo son dificiles de calcular, por lo que les pedimos que continuen colaborando de todas las maneras posibles.
Lo mejor para todos, y gracias!

Amigos de la familia Brunetti.
