Bergmans for Bruno

Our one-of-a-kind friend Bruno has been diagnosed with creutzfeldt-jakob disease - a severly aggressive, degenerative and fatal brain condition.

He and his family - Deb, Joel and Ae - have been through the ringer over the past couple years as Bruce has undergone heart bypass surgery and a kidney transplant, among other struggles. We would like to make things a little easier by allowing them to spend as much of their limited time together while Bruce is in hospital in Vancouver. Our goal is to ease the burden of mounting hotel, food and flight expenses for Deb and the boys, as well as Bruce’s siblings Paul, Rob, Julie, Chris, Kathy and Bruce’s mom Ruth during this heartbreaking time.


Bruce has touched all of us through his music, never ending kindness, infectious nature, smile and laugh. Let’s help his family be together for as long as they can. Let’s git-er-done! Love you Bruno!

Below, a few tunes and photos of Bruce to keep him in our thoughts...
