Breaking News: Peter Rauhofer diagnosed with brain tumor
By Joseph Mills, News Editor
A longtime friend and the 2013 JustCircuit Awards DJ of the Year, Peter Rauhofer is currently in a New York City hospital after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. This afternoon, Peter's manager, Angelo Russo, announced the following on Peter's Facebook page:
"Dear Friends and Loyal Fans,
As Peter Rauhofer's manager and dear friend for many years, it is my sad duty to announce that Peter was rushed to the emergency room several weeks ago. After confirming that Peter had a seizure, further testing has revealed a large brain tumor, something that has gone undiagnosed for quite some time.
At this time, Peter's family is working closely with a team of talented Neurologists to determine the overall best treatment option. Please be assured that he is getting the absolute finest care possible, twenty-four hours a day.
I know Peter would appreciate your kind consideration and positive energy during this extremely difficult period. We will post any updates and progress reports as they become available.
Feel free to post your condolences as well as check into this page for updates.
Peter Rauhofer is loved by everyone here at JustCircuit. His relationship with Shane and Victor has spanned over a decade. One Mighty Weekend made the following announcement on the One Mighty Weekend Facebook page:
"Johnny Chisholm and his entire team at One Mighty Weekend are keeping Peter Rauhofer in their thoughts and prayers as he fights the greatest battle of his life. We have been in constant contact over the past weeks in the hopes that a better diagnosis would be found. We have also been in negotiation with another World-Renowned DJ to take his place at Magic Journeys May 31st in Orlando in the event Peter would not be able to perform. Given the sad news today that Peter is in a critical condition we take this moment to wish him a speedy recovery and announce that Danny Tenaglia will now be taking the stage and spinning the hottest first night of Magic Journeys on Friday, May 31st 2013 at Arabian Nights. Let's pay tribute to Peter and pack the dance floor, sending him our love."
