Four years ago, it became known that the drummer Martin Carrizo, brother of the remembered driver Caramelito, suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)– A degenerative neuromuscular disease that occurs when cells in the nervous system, called motor neurons, gradually slow down and die, causing progressive muscle paralysis.
For that reason, in December 2019 and after raising funds, traveled to Miami with his sister to start an experimental treatment, with injections, which would allow him to lead a normal life. However, in March of this year the musician wrote a letter on his social networks warning that he was going to put it aside: “I will no longer be able to return to the United States, it is impossible to pay it “, He said.
The truth is that in the last hours, and after several months without publicly referring to his health, he decided to publish a post on his account Instagram, where he has more than 70 thousand followers. “Hello sweethearts! I’m in the same hell, very exhausted, to be able to graphically explain 1% of what I feel all day. It is as if I was lying on the floor and an elephant stood on top of me without moving and one of its legs on my face, to that we add the pain in my ankles, feet, hands, wrists and veins”, He began writing next to a selfie that he shared on his profile. And he closed: “If I find myself writing this for everyone, it is because I am a hard head and while I listen to Los Abuelos de la Nada I still want my recovery.” Among the thousands of comments he received, the one from the sister of Gustavo Cerati, Laura, who expressed to him: “We all want your recovery, dear Martin! Force sweet! You deserve what you dream…. I adore you”.
In July, it was the cheerleader who referred to Martín’s health on the table of Having lunch with Mirtha Legrand. “I am the sister of a patient. It is difficult for me to speak in medical terms… But it is a disease that we know has no cure at the moment. Each patient, I imagine, the first thing they do is the impossible to get ahead. ” And he said: “Martin is now very accompanied by his children … For each patient is particular.” Then he noticed that it is a terminal disease for now of which “the cause is not known.” He said: “The ignorance is such that for each patient it is particular. Because Martín now tries to be as good as possible. He is meditating a lot and getting stronger ”.
When Joan Viale wanted me to comment on the background of a post that Martín had made on his social networks about the sale of his batteries, Caramelito smiled proudly. “From a very young age, his life is music. The drums his beloved instrument, he is also a composer and producer. Many of my songs were made by him. We work a lot. He said his drums keep playing while he recovers. He’s putting all of himself ”, Cecilia said. Furthermore, he added: “Every day that I wake up I ask the Universe for the cure to appear. What I most begged for was to come back from the United States and say: ‘We can do this’, but unfortunately not … “
Then he reflected: “Everything in life, are things that happen to capitalize on them. Learn from yourself. Choose where, what you want to do. He said that we are habituated beings. All mechanized. When you are in an extreme situation you say: ‘Do I want to choose this? No, little moment. ‘
