Enrique is an amazing young man, entering his Senior year at Vista High School, where he is the Vice President of the FFA and active member of the public speaking and livestock show teams. People who know him will tell you that he is one of the most fun-loving, funny, goofy, polite, caring and tough kids that they know.
Enrique raised a steer this year and brought it to show at our county fair this week. He competed in the market show, taking 2nd in his class, but felt ill, so went to the doctor the following morning. Today, Enrique was diagnosed with Leukemia , a cancer of the blood. He begins his battle tomorrow, the 4th of July.
Enrique will fight. He will fight and he will beat this. His family is equally as strong. They are some of the best people you will ever meet. Enrique is blessed with amazing parents and family who, along with his FFA extended family, will help him get through this awful disease. They are going to dive into this fight head-first, and they will beat it together.
No child should have to deal with cancer. No family should have to pay a dime because of this awful disease while watching their loved one suffer. This GoFundMe page has been set up for those who would like to financially contribute to his fight. There will be co-pays, co-insurance, and other costs for the next year to year and a half treatment and hospitalization. His parents will have to take a lot of time off from work and lose much needed income. The hope is this page rises to a level that will allow the Estrella’s to solely focus on Enrique's road ahead
