(MAR 17) Raylene & I had the most
Awesome Visit last night with “Our
New WBC Honorary Champion” Gabe Santistervan age 10,
at his home with his mom Kathleen and grandpa Mr.
Santistevan, whom by the way is an Honorable
Discharged Vietnam Vet Marine, with many Awards from
serving our Country and currently a retired railroad
worker, I bonded with him as former Marine and Mr.
Santistevan also came from the same neighborhood from
the projects called Casitas in West Denver.
Gabe was so thrilled with his
Honor from the WBC and his other awards, Gabe is
sending something special to our WBC President Mauricio
Sulaiman and thanked all of our WBC for the support for
his Battle against Brain Cancer which was diagnosed back in
August 19th 2013 with medulloblastoma, which is
highly malignant brain tumor that originated in his
cerebellum. Gabe is now on his fourth cycle of chemo and
sadly he will start another treatment in May there is still
cancer. Kathleen, Gabe’s mother is a single parent raising
Gabe and her 17 year old daughter Kandace on her own. She
has not left Gabe’s side since he was diagnosed with cancer
and is on unpaid leave of absence from work to care for him.
It has been
a very challenging time for the Santistevan family
and any help would be greatly appreciated, there will be a
fund raiser next month April 5th from
3-8pm at the Eagles Lodge 1151 S Galena
St. Our WBC Cares will be there for Sure!
this Gabe is your typical 10 year old that
loves building his Legos with his grandpa which to him
helps sharpen his mind and get back to normal, so any
support and love and prayers will be greatly appreciated by
this young man and his family.
personally since I meet Gabe last year and thanks to my old
boxer Jeff Rodriquez and his Sparta MMA show, it was
a Blessing and Bond meant to be. God will Bless and watch
over this young man and Raylene & I will do what we can to
support Gabe and his family!
Much Love & Blessing to all & Thanks for all the Support
& Tomorrow @ 3pm We do our WBC Cares Boxing
Event for Diedre Vickers/Strauch at Golden
Gloves Gym 6161 W. 44th .
