Hope Opens The Door


To mark World Cancer Day, LIVESTRONG announced a new initiative to help cancer survivors facing exceptional challenges. Jose Antonio Ventura, a bone cancer survivor and resident of East Austin, and his family was selected as the first recipients of the new LIVESTRONG Survivor Support Initiative to receive special assistance from the Foundation.

Here is their story:

We are so happy to report that Jose Antonio, his wife Maria, teenage son Gustavo, three-year-old granddaughter Zurayma, and six-year old grandson Miguel, now have a new home in East Austin. We would like to thank all of the businesses, Foundation staff and others that donated time and funds to this initiative.

May there be many more happy days ahead.
