THE STORY:

In 2010 Levi Martinez a freshmen high school football player was diagnosed PNET a form of brain cancer. Levi had just finished an undefeated football season largely due to his strength, speed and spirit. Levi underwent several courses of treatment including chemo and radiation. He fought the cancer and won, but was never able to return fully to football after that! However, Levi committed himself to helping others with cancer namely kids. Levi participated in the Candlelighter organization. He volunteered time and devoted his strength and spirit to those kids who were fighting cancer as he had done. Levi decided he wanted to become a nurse inspired by those who had helped, cared for and treated him during his bout with cancer. Unfortunately Levi's drive towards a career in caring for others and volunteer work with kids with cancer has hit a road block. In June, 2015, Levi's cancer returned. His 5+ hour surgery was successful, but once again Levi required treatment. He valiantly fought during chemo and other therapies, but sadly Levi's cancer kept returning.  Yesterday Levi passed away after his long courageous fight.  Memorial services and burial will be held May 21, 2016, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Tucson with burial to follow at Marana Cemetery in Marana.  Donations towards funeral expenses for Levi may be made here, and any donation in any amount will be appreciated and valued.  On behalf of Levi and his family, thank you.
