It has been a year since your extraordinary efforts to help Betto with his fight against cancer. He has now gotten to the other side of his fight and we want to let all that so generously helped us know he is doing well and is back on his bike.
Betto completed six Chemotherapy treatments and received radiation daily for six weeks. Without all your help this would not have been possible.
When Betto was in the middle of this debilitating situation his friends kept his spirits high by discussing and visualizing him biking the Volcanoes in Toluca, Mexico. This dream has come true.
In Mid October, Betto and friends went to Toluca, Mexico and biked the magnificent volcanoes at 14,000 feet elevation.
This holiday season we celebrate the wonderful gift of life! We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday!
Love and blessings,
Anita and Betto

I am sorry I have not been able to keep you informed about Betto’s progress. I had a premature baby boy on October 14 th., and life has been very hectic. I am happy to say that Betto has finished his chemotherapy and has been feeling well enough to bike again! What a blessing! His life has returned to a form of normal for now. Unfortunately, he will have to begin radiation this Thursday in Leon. He will be going everyday for the month of March. He has gone through many tests to see exactly where the radiologist will treat him. He will need the radiation all the way
up his spine and into his neck. Lymphoma can work its way in to the brain and because of where it was found in Betto’s back, they will start a aggressive treatment. March will be a difficult month, but we look forward to this being the final treatment. After this he will be tested every six months to make sure there are no other lymphoma cells missed.
We appreciate all your positive thoughts and prayers!
