Dear Editor,

I’ve setup this fundraiser on behalf of the Fuentes family, to hopefully help lessen some of the hardships they are facing.

On July 7 Mando (Junior) was involved in a very serious accident while he was out riding his bike (vehicle vs pedestrian).

He suffered traumatic head injuries and was flown to a Modesto hospital where he was taken to the  ICU under heavy sedation to help his brain try to heal.

Those who know Mando know how kindhearted and genuine he is. He’s a loving father, husband, son, brother, coach & friend.

A Go Fund Me site has been set up for Mando at this link:

Any contribution, no matter the amount, is appreciate and will help pay for medical expenses.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please keep Mando and his family in your prayers.
