The island community never fails to lend a helping hand. On Friday, April 29th, a coin drive, and food and bake sale was held to raise funds for Winston Frank Panton. Panton, an active member of the community, is in need of financial assistance following his cancer diagnosis. As such, long-time friends of Panton, volunteers from Red Cross, and students from La Isla Bonita Elementary gathered to raise money for Panton’s medical expenses.

A visit to the doctor led to the discovery of Panton having an advanced state of cancer. The disease has spread to his spinal cord, and he now needs immediate medical attention. Marisa Salazar, a long-time friend of Panton, willingly assisted the drive and invited people to stop by and make a donation. “We are trying to raise funds so he can get treatment. Even though we are showing support, he needs a lot of prayers too,” said Salazar.

Panton has played an active role in the community, as well as in the education sector. He is currently the representative for the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), a member of the Red Cross, and a retired meteorologist. The San Pedro High School even supported the cause and showed their appreciation for Panton by collecting coins at 7AM.

If you would like to assist Frank Panton with donations to help finance his medical costs, please contact him at 628-2542. The San Pedro Sun would like to acknowledge Frank Panton in this difficult time, along with his great achievements and efforts that have helped the community of San Pedro.
