Wasco correctional officers rally to help a co-worker battling stage four cancer

KEROA group of correctional officers from Wasco State Prison have come together to help a former co-worker battling stage four pancreatic cancer.

"It's a big shock,” said Henoc Zamudio.

Doctors told Zamudio he had cancer almost two months ago.

“I mean I had no clue. Never in a million years I would have thought something like that would happen to me."

The cancer has spread to Zamudio’s liver and doctors also said Zamudio only had three to six months left to live without chemotherapy.

“It’s hard on the kids, but we’ll pull through,” said Zamudio.

Zamudio recently decided to leave his job at the prison to spend more time with his wife and two daughters.

"That was one of the hardest things to do was put in my resignation,” explained Zamudio.

It has also been hard on those who worked with the 38-year-old.

"It's devastating to hear news like that about someone you know somebody you work with and appreciate,” said Anthony Blanco, Correctional Sergeant at the Wasco State Prison. continue reading...

I'm retired now but worked with him on several occasions.
He is a great guy and really needs help. With only 8 years in the Dept. he was not eligible to retire so instead chose to resign to spend his last few months with his family. Any help given will be appreciated greatly.
Thank You,
