Richie Cano


My son Richie was rushed to the ER on July 26th 2018. He had a 107 fever and wasn’t speaking correctly (mental decline), and could not breathe. He went into septic shock and DIC. He was sedated and intubated. He coded 3 times. They tried to save him but unfortunately, they couldn’t.

He passed away on July 29th. The doctors said he had a fungal blood infection, which he was not aware of. (Sepsis and Fungal Infections) He was only 26 yrs old. This is devastating losing my son. I was not aware of sepsis until this happened to my son. I want to help raise awareness.
