Victoria Martin is battling cancer.

The former yard supervisor at the McParland School Annex is currently receiving medical treatment at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital.

According to Kathy Rich, the family is having a tough go financially, with hopes that Martin can be placed in hospice care.

She’s planning a car wash on Thursday, April 15, in the parking lot of the Les Schwab tire Center, 1240 W. Yosemite Ave., beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Donations will be accepted.

“Anyone can make a contribution,” Rich said on Monday.

Martin has been battling cancer for over seven years. Last October, she was in need of a bone marrow transplant, having to go outside of her family to find a match.

It was back then that she helped raised awareness to the cause during a bone marrow matching drive held in the McParland School library.

She’s continued to struggle with her ailing health.

Earlier this year, Victoria and her husband, Jerald – they’re also the proud parents of McParland School students, Jerry and Delicia – renewed their wedding vows during a special ceremony at St. Anthony’s Church with their children in attendance.

The school’s Community Club played a big role in making that day special.

Contributions can also be made in care of: Jerald Martin, Union Bank of California located inside Save Mart, 1431 W. Yosemite Ave. (account number, 6631105480).
