Ryfo Network reports that vocalist Tony Gambino of Canada's BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART was admitted to the emergency room earlier this week (see photo below) with what appeared to be meningitis. "Tony and his wife are currently without health insurance," reads a post on the site. "As it turns out, Tony's meningitis-like symptoms were caused by a bad reaction to some antibiotics he was taking. . . Because of the lack of insurance, one day in the hospital has generated a hefty bill, and his visit was unavoidable. Please consider giving to Tony and his family. We have set up a PayPal to do so. If we are all able to bless them with a little, we will be able to help them cover all of their unfortunate expenses."
