Love for Dave Loveton

Hello friends:

Dave Loveton, our Sports Information Specialist, was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer and faces a tough fight that will keep him out of work for an extended period of time.  Dave underwent surgery to remove one of his kidneys and will begin his brave fight to beat cancer. 

While Dave is battling his own personal illness, it would be great if his friends and family could support him.  Dave has been the Sports Information Specialist at SBCC for 12 years and has been a very visibile and respected member in the community for decades.  Those who know Dave, know he is a selfless person who does so much to support and promote all of the great accomplishments by our student-athletes while they are at SBCC and even after they graduate.  He has also been a staple of the Santa Barbara athletics scene and has touched all of our lives in one way or another.

Dave has shown a remarkable spirit since his diagnosis and hasn't let this tough break keep him from doing his typical outstanding work. 

One of the main areas of concern for Dave is covering his finances for the time he is out and that is where we can all come to his aid.  

Please consider donating any amount, all of which will go to Dave to cover his costs of living while he is out of work.  Our administration and human resources department have gone out of their way to support Dave, but as an hourly employee he doesn't have the same benefits and advantages as a full-time employee.

All of our thoughts and prayers are for Dave to make a quick and full recovery and by assisting with his costs of living, we can take a tremendous amount of stress off of him as he fights the good fight.  

Thank you for supporting the great Dave Loveton!
