BUHS Student Succumbs To Cancer

By Chris Furguson
A viewing for Anthony Garcia will be held at Brawley Union High School on May 3 from 6 pm to 9 pm.  This will be followed by funeral services the next day at St. Margaret Mary’s Church in Brawley at 10 am.
The son of Lupe and Rusty Garcia, Anthony was a senior at Brawley Union High School. Anthony was diagnosed with cancer in January of this year after a visit to Pioneers Memorial Hospital and was quickly sent to Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where he stayed until his passing on Sunday.
Tests at the time showed Anthony had cancer in several places, including his stomach, spine and liver.
Soon after his diagnosis, a BBQ fundraiser was held in his name that drew several thousand dollars for his treatment.
More than 40 people were at Anthony’s bedside when he passed on April 24th.  He was scheduled to have a procedure done the previous week, but tests showed that some of his organs had failed.  Two entire waiting rooms were also filled with friends, family and other wellwishers.
Anthony had been part of the 2010 Bell Game winning Brawley Wildcats, earning Imperial Valley League second team honors for the year as an offensive lineman.
In addition to his parents, Anthony leaves behind an older sister and a younger brother and younger sister.
