How you can support the Espiritu Family
Many of you in our community know the Espiritu family. Both Neil and Cindy are very active in our community, extremely involved and loving parents. On Christmas Eve, Cindy went to Hoag for a headache and was diagnosed with Leukemia AMML M4. She started Chemo on 12/29. The family will be staying close by Cindy's side at Hoag for treatment for the next 4-6 weeks.
During this time, we are rallying together to make sure the family has as little outside worry as possible. Please consider joining the meal train and keeping up with Cindy's journey. On Tuesday 1/7 and Thursday 1/9 Run Club we will be sharing our love and support for Coach Neil and his family by making a card and videos. We hope all of our devoted runners will make it on either Tuesday or Thursday to participate.
