Arguably the best DJ on the gay scene today, Peter Rauhofer has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

In a statement posted by his manager and friend Angelo Russo today on Facebook, it was revealed that Peter was rushed to emergency a few weeks ago because of a seizure where it was discovered that he has had an untreated brain tumor.

This is of course some of the saddest news I have heard in a long time. The talent and passion this man has for music with his amazing productions and collaborations with EVERYONE in the industry is unparalleled. On a personal note, Peter Rauhofer also played the very first RAPTURE event at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver that I organized and it was truly one of the most important nights of my career.

Everyone at Homorazzi is sending our love and prayers to him for a hopeful recovery. Read the statement below.

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.
