Christian Longomba needs your help

July 19th, 2015 1 min read

One half of the Longombas duo, Christian, who lives in the US, is in desperate need of financial assistance to help him offset a huge medical bill.

Christian is set to undergo a brain surgery to remove a tumour.

According to his brother Lovy, Christian suffered a seizure in May and tests confirmed “a very serious and life threatening diagnosis – Falx and parasagittal meningiomas: It grows from the dural fold, called the falx, which runs between the left and right sides of the brain.”

Lovy, who has set up a GoFundMe (Brain Surgery for Christian) pledge page wrote:

“Because of the danger of injuring the sinuses, removing a tumour in the falx or parasagittal region is extremely difficult. A grim prognosis added to Christian’s bewildered and devastated outlook. After receiving his diagnosis, Christian launched into perhaps his most challenging endeavour — starting his journey in the treatment of his brain tumour. It took two long weeks for Christian to start the surgery process.”

The family is also asking his fans and friends to keep him in prayers. Longombas brothers, Lovy and Christian, relocated to the US in 2006 at the height of their musical success.
