Garza Needs Transplant, Community Responding

Garza Needs Transplant, Community Responding

The Central Valley community is rallying around Central High School football coach Justin Garza, who needs a bone marrow transplant.
Justin Garza, the very popular head football coach at Central High School, is reaching out to the community in his fight against cancer, and the Central Valley community is responding. 

The 38-year-old husband and father of one, with another child on the way, learned in June he's come out of remission for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and is facing a third battle with that form of cancer. 

His best option for a cure is a bone-marrow transplant, so he's organized a bone marrow drive for Central's home opener on Friday August 29th, which has inspired other members of the Central Valley football community to help out as well. 

According to Garza, here is the list of schools that are holding bone marrow drives in the coming weeks. 

Monday July 28 - Fowler High School - 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Wednesday August 27 - Reedley College - 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

Friday August 29 - Dinuba High School - 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

Friday August 29 - Deran Koligian Stadium (Central football's home opener) - 5:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.
