Hi, it’s Marisa!

I created this GoFundMe to help my Aunt financially recover from the loss of income she has faced due to my uncles illness + the continued financial hardships ahead.

Giovanni Fusco was born a musician. From a very young age his perfect pitch and impeccable ear for sounds made him a passionate piano student, drummer and percussionist, and later in life a musical engineer.

With 30+ years of playing, writing, and recording music in NYC with some of the best musicians around, Gio’s passion for music was his life’s passion. Gio built a studio in his garage with the hopes of getting back to the studio life he loved and missed so much. His studio’s progress was documented on his FB page to the amazement of all who followed him. The beautiful studio was completed, but sadly never used.
Shortly after it’s completion, Giovanni was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer and began chemo and radiation therapy. Never giving up, Gio completed his treatment in the beginning of 2023. For two months after, he revisited the idea of going in his studio, only to become sick again in the Spring and then diagnosed at the end of July with PML (Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy) . To make matters worse, on September 7th a tree fell on top of the studio, destroying the studio in its entirety. As of now insurance will not cover the damage.

If you can help…

G’s wife Minna owns her own hair salon and it has become increasingly difficult to manage her business on top of everything else. Unfortunately, there is no cure or good outlook on Giovanni’s diagnoses. He is no longer able to work or think/speak clearly and his condition is rapidly declining. Any donation would be greatly appreciated during this hard time.
Thank you all + with love,

Marisa Amato
