Statement -
"I have known John "Gungie" Rivera for many years. When one hears that a child's life is cut drastically short because of an illness, it strikes a chord. Being a parent I certainly empathize. Knowing that pontine glioma struck my friend's child leaves me without words and just brings matters over the edge. I've had other friends deal with similar pain. It's time and I want to be involved in any way I can. "
