Prayer/Help Request for Rusty (Siclista Classic Participant)

Fellow Riders,

On behalf of Raymond, I am posting this request for a fellow rider Rusty Cantor. Rusty participated in the Siclista Classic two months ago, and just two weeks ago was involved in a life-changing bike accident. He was on a group ride when the accident happened on Corral Hollow Road in Livermore. All we know now is that Rusty was going downhill along Corral, when he somehow lost control. He is currently confined in the hospital with severe trauma and injuries- his condition precipitated his stay in the ICU for the past two weeks.

The request at this point is to plan any hospital visit at a future date when he becomes fully responsive. Rusty's wife, Cora, does request our prayers for Rusty, for a speedy and complete recovery - so please include him in your daily prayers. She also requests out of the kindness of your heart if you could help the family out financially at this critical time.

The address to make a contribution for Rusty and Cora is:

Rusty and Cora Cantor
3252 James Anthony Drive
Tracy CA 95377

Raymond can also be contacted at raymond.sambrano@yahoo.com. Thanks and God bless.

Depending on who shows up, we can go to Quimby or split the group into 2 with moderate riders going up on 130.

Rain cancels ride but we'll still get together to shoot the bull if that's the case and talk about the upcoming Siclista Xmas party and figure out what to do for our friend, Rusty, a Tracy Rider.
