Musician, writer and dear friend Giovanni Fazio (Makyo) is struggling with tinnitus, hyperacusis and a mysterious form of nerve pain that has slowly spread throughout his body.

His pain started in September 2014 and has not relented. In mid April, his condition took a turn for the worse and he has been frantically searching for ways to stop this debilitating pain and return to a normal life.

We are currently seeking donations that will go toward paying his expenses and medical bills.

Every little bit helps.

Friends and family, we are kindly asking for your support. Fans of Makyo's music, please know that there are three albums ready and waiting for release, so your support now will go a long way towards making this happen.

親友のGio (Makyo / Dakini Records)のためのcrowd-fundingです。

半年以上、病気に苦しまれています。いくつもの病院に通っても未だにはっきりした原因や診断はできていない状態が続いています。最近、入院も認められないこともあり、病院の近くのホテルに泊まったりしています。仕事もできない状況、そして医療費と諸経費がかかっていますので、crowd-fundingのご参加を呼び掛けています。何卒、よろしくお願いいたします。

Thank you so much for your support. I have been in the worst pain of my life the past few weeks, and each day is a struggle. All the warm messages and calls and other signs of support I have received have really helped to keep me going.

As for the health update, I still have not been able to get any diagnosis, and I'm still in a lot of pain. There was a major breakdown around the end of summer, and I wasn't able to sleep for about a week, too painful to even get in or out of bed, so I've been sleeping in a chair, which sucks. My neck seized up in a way that resembles cervical dystonia, I couldn't even move my head for several weeks and it was stuck in this really weird position. I really thought I had hit the end, but I've been on 60 mg of morphine a day for the pain, and doing lots of acupuncture, which is kept me going for the past month. Still not sure what's wrong or how to fix it yet though., but trying. I still have two more albums I want to get out there.

友人の皆さん、心からありがとうございます。 毎日は辛いし、痛みがメチャ苦しいし、病名でもまだわからない状態で居るのが不安だけど、一日一日頑張って負けないように戦っています。サポートしてくれる事、助かっています. 三つのアルバムが出来て居るから、ちゃんとリリースする元気が取り戻せるように頑張ります。

I've been unable to make music since last September, and I had to take a leave of absence from my day job starting this month, so things are going to get hard quickly. I can't begin to thank you all for this support.

Gio, I've been chill DJing for fifteen years, and have listened to tens of thousands of downtempo songs, and your music is the deepest, funkiest, most rich and deep music I have come across. I am sad to read of your misfortune, and am wishing you healing and freedom from pain.
