Saxophonist Andrew D’angelo Has Brain Tumor

Saxophonist/composer Andrew D’Angelo suffered a major seizure on January 25 while driving in Brooklyn, NY. Tests in the hospital revealed a large tumor in his brain. D’Angelo will undergo brain surgery at some point in the next few weeks. At this time, it is believed that the tumor is not cancerous, but this will not be confirmed until a biopsy is performed.

Because D’Angelo has no health insurance, a fund has been established to help with the costs of his surgery and recovery. Donations can be sent via PayPal at [email protected]. Benefit concerts are currently being planned for New York City and Boston. More information about these concerts will be posted on Andrew D’Angelo.com as soon as it is available.
