Just two years ago, he returned to Peru to represent a corporation of national restaurants in the United States and, in addition, he did social work.
Now, it is known that the remembered member of Arena Hash is in poor health after having suffered a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). This was evidenced by Pedro Suárez Vértiz through his social networks, on August 13, where he asked colleagues and fans of Arturo Pomar Jr. for financial help so that he could be rehabilitated.
“Collaborate with our forever friend, Arturo Pomar Jr., who gave us so much joy as the drummer of the most famous band in Peru in the 80s and 90s, Arena Hash,” read the beginning of his publication.
“Your best result will be achieved through rehabilitation, which is not cheap and is not covered by your health insurance either,” read the extensive message that PSV dedicated to his dear friend.

Arturo Pomar needs funds for his rehabilitation
On the night of August 19, the program “Magaly TV, la firma” delved into the state of health of the former Arena Hash drummer and made a report honoring his career and recalling his time with the group.
Two of his best friends he made in Peru, Patricio Suárez Vértiz and Nina Mutal, explained to the cameras of the show space how he suffered a cardiovascular accident when he was carrying out his daily activities.
“Arturo is as strong as his kindness because five days (since his stroke) he was discharged. He is already at home, he walks, he talks, but what he needs is three months of therapy, which is really little and that is not covered by insurance, ”said the rocker and friend of Poma Jr.
PSV creates a GoFundMe account to raise money
In addition, in the publication made by Pedro Suárez Vértiz reporting on the health status of his colleague Arturo Pomar Jr., he announced that he had created an account on the American collective financing platform GoFundMe.
“With the authorization of his wife, we have created this account that is linked to them directly. Everything is honest and with love”, she read in her Instagram post.
