A family in Orange County is fighting for their lives as both parents have cancer and their three young children hope they beat the odds.

The family's mom, Cori Salazar, is recovering from an aggressive form of thyroid cancer and has undergone two surgeries including one just last month. The father of the family, Zak Salazar, had to undergo emergency brain surgery after a large tumor was found following an eye appointment.

Zak Salazar found out that he has stage 4 glioblastoma and has been given 12-18 months to live. Their community in Orange County has been outpouring support. A lemonade stand had been set up to help raise spirits and finds, and many people stopped by to show their support.

During the pandemic the Salazars created an online show for kids during the pandemic shutdowns to teach kids about wildlife. The videos came at a time when families really needed the educational outlet. Now Zak and Cori need support.

Zak is preparing for six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. A GoFundMe has been set up to raise money for the Salazar family's care.
