Enrique Ramos, a father of two, an involved Calaveras Youth Soccer member, a referee trainer, and a self-employed arborist, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor on July 29, 2017... He went in for surgery on August 3rd.Fortunately, the amazing team of doctors at UC San Francisco was able to remove 80% of the tumor in a very successful surgery. Enrique will now begin the long road of radiation and chemotherapy. He is a strong, healthy man, surrounded by lots of family and friends and a community that loves him dearly. However, the shock of a cancer diagnosis and the emotional and financial burden can cause added stress. In addition to loss of income, his family will have to shoulder the burden of numerous trips to San Francisco for follow up. The expense of these trips can add up as the family must pay for gas, lodging, tolls, parking, etc. Enrique has always done so much for others, volunteering, coaching soccer, involved in CCRT and refereeing for many years in Calaveras County. He has the most generous heart and always puts others first. He cares so deeply about his family, his friends and his community. Now it's our turn to thank him, show our support, and help ease the financial burden on the family.
