BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Friends and co-workers of a former Wasco correctional officer battling stage four cancer once again rallied together to help him and his family.
Another fundraiser for Henoc Zamudio was held at the Nile Nightclub in downtown Bakersfield, organized by his former co-workers.
"It feels good. I just appreciate everyone coming in and sharing their support," Zamudio said.
Those same co-workers joined Zamudio and his family for what they called "a celebration of life."
"Just to get together, spend time with him... is great and great time for his family," said former co-worker Anthony Blanco.
It was also another chance to raise money for Zamudio's family.
