Gustavo Cerati Shows No Signs of Improvement, But Family Remains Hopeful For Recovery
There's been no positive update to the condition of Argentine singer-songwriter and Latin rock pioneer Gustavo Cerati, but his family hasn't lost hope. Cerati remains in the FLENI clinic in Buenos Aires, where he was transferred on June, 7, following his May 15 hospitalization in Caracas, Venezuela after a collapse. Tests later revealed Cerati had suffered a stroke in the left hemisphere of his brain following a show there on his Fuerza Natural (Natural Force) tour.
Still, Cerati's family remains optimistic that he will recover little by little. His sister Laura Cerati recently spoke to the Buenos Aires Herald, saying, "We believe that Gus will get better. We currently focus our time and energy on him, that's why we don't talk to the press."
She then went on to thank fans for the outpouring of support in the wake of Cerati's condition.
