Hugo Duarte Cancer Support

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in Blog

As many of you are probably now aware, my dear friend and musical partner in The Frozen Gringos, Hugo Duarte has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Knowing Hugo as I do I am very aware of how much his privacy means to him. So with that in mind I will be respecting his wishes, as should you, and will not be filling up my page, nor his, with thoughts, talks, posts and prayers for Cancer. He is very much aware of the fight ahead, the amount of people who are praying for him and those who are here to help him. Being constantly reminded of this fight everywhere you turn can become horribly daunting. It is his wish to be able to do his best in carrying on as much of a normal routine as possible as he begins this new journey.

However, we do recognize the need for communication and a forum with which to share information. This forum is now live and can be reached at We encourage you to post all of your thoughts and feelings for Hugo there. It will be the “official”, so to speak, forum in which Hugo will be communicating to everyone about his progress and he will greatly appreciate your interaction. Please refrain from e-mails, text messages and phone calls at this time.

Thank you very much for your thoughts and continuous prayers for Hugo. –
