Raul's Last Hope

My name is Evelyn Garcia and my brother is Raul Garcia. We were born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and we are still here.  We are from a family of two wonderful caring parents and six siblings, a household total of eight. Family is very important to us, so when we heard about Raul's diagnosis, we were devastated.  Raul was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in his right temporal lobe in 2013. Since then, he has been in a constant battle and through out the years the tumor has now become three and continue to grow. He has not been able to win the fight YET, but with with the hope of a new treatment plan outside the US we hope he finally ends up victorious and defeats the tumors eating away his hopes and dreams. 

Raul is a very intelligent, enthusiastic, fun, loving, and caring young man with way more to offer to this world. His life is being cut too short due to the growing tumors in his brain.  He is about to turn 27 years old. He graduated from UCSB with a degree in physical geography and he has not been able to fulfill his dreams. In San Fernando High School he was in cross-country and he put all his knowledge to the test. In college he was was ready to conquer life to the fullest, he worked for JPL, he loves the outdoors, but now he is unable do any of what he wants to do. Now, his reality is being bound to a wheelchair, he has tremors, left side weakness, seizures, short-term memory loss, speech impairment, and vision loss. He has already completed two rounds of radiation and continuous chemo treatments, but  they have not worked and yet, he continues to have HOPE. We are in dire need of all of your prayers and support to provide him his last hope of an alternative treatment to give him a chance of life.  All who know and want to know Raul,  he is a person with a huge heart and he is not giving up.

From Family and Friends, we thank you for your support.

Mi nombre es Evelyn Garcia y mi hermano es Raul Garcia. Nacimos y crecimos en el Valle de San Fernando y todavía estamos aquí. Raul fue diagnosticado por primera vez con un tumor cerebral en su lóbulo frontal derecho en 2012. Desde entonces, ha estado en una batalla constante y a lo largo de los años, el tumor se ha convertido en tres y continúa creciendo. Aún no ha podido ganar la pelea, pero con la esperanza de un nuevo plan de tratamiento fuera de los EE. UU., esperamos que finalmente salga victorioso y derrote a los tumores que se comen sus esperanzas y sueños.
         
Raul es un joven muy inteligente, entusiasta, divertido, amoroso y afectuoso, con mucho más que ofrecer a este mundo. Su vida se está acortando demasiado debido a los crecientes tumores en su cerebro. Está a punto de cumplir 27 años. Se graduó de la universidad UCSB con un título en geografía física y no ha podido cumplir sus sueños. En la escuela secundaria le encantaba correr y estaba en un equipo, en la universidad estaba listo para conquistar la vida al máximo, trabajó para JPL, ama el aire libre, pero ahora no puede hacer nada de lo que quiere hacer. Ahora, su realidad está ligada a una silla de ruedas, tiene temblores, debilidad en el lado izquierdo, convulsiones, pérdida de memoria a corto plazo, discapacidad del habla y pérdida de visión. Ya ha completado dos rondas de radiación y tratamientos continuos de quimioterapia, pero no han funcionado y, sin embargo, sigue teniendo ESPERANZA. Tenemos una gran necesidad de todas sus oraciones y apoyo para brindarle su última esperanza de un tratamiento alternativo para darle una oportunidad de vida. Todos los que conocen y quieren conocer a Raul, saben que tiene un gran corazón y que él nunca se rendirá. 

En adelanto, le agradecemos su apoyo.
