Anthony Sandoval update
WALSENBURG- Last week’s we ran information about Anthony Sandoval of Walsenburg getting diagnosed with A.L.L., a type of treatable leukemia. Here is more information sent to us by the family.
“It will take about three years of treatment at The Children’s Hospital in Denver, then he will be 100% healed. He is already doing so much better. Thank you for your continuing donations in the jars placed around town! Anthony and his entire family, parents Mike and Barbi Sandoval, Jessica Ortega, grandparents, Leroy Sandoval, Pete and Delphine Ortega, Wayne and Pam Brietweiser, older brother Mikey and younger sisters, Alex, Savannah, and Natalie, and all of his aunts and uncles are grateful for all that you continue to do. For the correct information, contact his dad, Mike Sandoval at 719-738-3188.”
