Rigo Peña

Today heaven has gained an Angel. 
On June 29, 2019 Rigoberto Peña lost his battle to 
A brain tumor called anaplastic astrocytoma.
Rigo fought bravely for years, but the tumor recently came back.
He no longer responded to treatments and Chemotherapy. His last Chemotherapy was in April 2019, to which he didn’t respond. 
The tumor grew onto two frontal lobes and spread to the top of his brain. 
This past week he fell into a coma and was hospitalized. After nothing could be done, the  hospital released him home on oxygen and a nebulizer, still in a coma. 
Today, when Rigo passed away at home, he was surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.
At his side was his wife, Vanessa Peña. She Has not left his side and has had to support their family while going through this extremely difficult time. 

Rigo leaves behind his beloved wife Vanessa, 3 year old Daughter and 5 year old son. 

Funds raised will be going directly to Vanessa for for funeral expenses, to provide for herself and children through this time of loss and to pay Medical bills.
