WASCO - Friends and family need help fulfilling the wish of a former correctional officer at Wasco State Prison battling stage four pancreatic cancer.
“It’s hard on the kids, but we’ll pull through,” said Henoc Zamudio.
Doctors told Zamudio, only 38, he had cancer two months ago. The cancer has spread to Zamudio’s liver and doctors also said Zamudio only had three to six months left to live without chemotherapy. His health has been declining.
Zamuido has a wish to see his 1949 Chevy Fleetline restored. Time is of the essence and his friends want to see Henoc take at least one ride in his classic car before he dies.
If you are willing to donate time or money to the project, call the 23ABC Newsroom, attention Melinda Dionne, at 661-281-3719.
There will be a fundraiser for Zamudio at Jersey Mike’s Subs at 4715 Coffee Road on April 23 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to Zamudio and his family.
