 Ernesto Maldonado
    Evaldez2  Ernesto Maldonado was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer on April 23, 2018.  He was treated at CBCC with weekly chemotherapy for six weeks and daily radiation.  On August 8th Ernesto underwent surgery at UCLA where they virtually reconstructed his entire esophagus.  The surgery was complicated and invasive and lasted 14 hours.  He remained at UCLA for 12 days after surgery.  It has been a long recovery but he is doing better.  They just took out his feeding tube and he is getting back to normal.   The Josh Farler Fund provided over $300 in gas cards for Ernesto's sister Lidia to be able to take him to UCLA for pre-op appointments and follow-up.  The fund also paid for Ernesto, Lidia and their mom to stay the night in a hotel before his surgery and three days into his recovery.  It was extremely important for Ernesto to have his family close by while he was in the ICU.  Their support helped pull him through.  Ernesto says, "You don't realize how important organizations like the Josh Farler Fund are until you are scared and helpless.  It felt good knowing that people from my community were willing to help me.  That support has given me the will to survive."
