Terrible news came through on the wires today from our fine colleagues Lois and Paul Pasternak who do such a mighty job with their respected Americas-focused e-Newsletter and magazine, Travel Markets Insider.

Insider revealed that Andres Morochz, who works for Beaute Prestige International (BPI), the hugely creative Shiseido-owned fragrance house, in its Miami office, broke two vertebrae in his neck while celebrating with his family in Ecuador over New Year.

Andres underwent surgery in Ecuador on 2 January but still has very limited mobility. He is now back in Miami, recovering from surgery and waiting for physical therapy at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Lois informs us.

The US medical system doesn’t come cheap – his therapy for the next four weeks along will cost around US$100,000 and his insurance cover runs to just US$2,500 a year.

His friends and colleagues have put together a trust fund to help Andres through this testing period. They have also created a website – visit

Or you can call Giannine Camplani at 1-305 533 1502.

Let’s all help Andres. We’ve made a donation. Please do what you can too.
