Pretty Lou

Hot 97's "HeavyHitter" Luis Ortega, better known to the entertainment world as Pretty Lou from the Terror Squad has continuously dominated NYC's nightclub scene as the #1 Party Host and DJ.

At the height of his career, Pretty Lou became diagnosed with a rare bone marrow disease called Aplastic Anemia a condition that occured when his body stopped producing enough new blood cells. This rare and serious condition elevated to LGL Leukemia a type of blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow.

Pretty Lou has undergone several treatments of Campath a new variation of Chemo Therapy at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City where he has shown much improvement in his health and character. Through his non-profit Foundation, Pretty Lou continues to create awareness and education about cancer screening. He has chosen the Motto “I Will Beat This” & “Pretty Lou Will Not Lose”. He has become a symbol of motivation and hard work to all that follows his journey.
