Life is precious and fleeting as in the life of 16 year old David Navarro, Jr., who lost his courageous battle with Cancer in August 2014. David was the son of one of the Airport Farmer’s and Flea Market’s vendors, Dave Navarro & his wife, Seti and the brother of his sisters, Amanda & Christina.
David was diagnosed with lymphoma on Feb. 4, 2014 and passed away on August 24, 2014, at the Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando. During his 7 months of treatments, David was in the Cancer ICU ward numerous times and he and his family basically lived at the hospital, but being the special person that he was, David Jr. expressed to his family that it was his wish to provide decent TV’s for the ICU ward so that other kids battling their illness had something fun to fill their long days.
Thus it has become the family’s goal to make that wish come true. Because Arnold Palmer Hospital is a non profit hospital, they rely heavily on donations and the family is determined to reach their goal to provide 32” Flat Screen TV’s for 17 patient rooms, 2 family rooms, the nurses lounge and a 42” Flat Screen for the large family gathering room. Their goal is $4500 and all monies that exceed that amount will go to additional charity for patients in need at Arnold Palmer Hospital. Dave and his family have collected almost $1500 but still need $3000 more to reach their goal. It is the desire of all of us at Airport Farmer’s & Flea Market to help the family meet their goal and help fufill David Jr.’s wish.
Airport Farmer's & Flea Market is pleased to have David Navarro Jr.’s Benefit on Saturday, March 28, 2015. There will be a concert by local band "Shadow Ridge" who have generously donated their time and talents, on our stage from 12 pm - 3 pm, a 50/50 raffle, a dunk tank and so much more going on throughout the day. Please plan to join them and let’s help this loving family make David’s wish come true. For details or if you wish to donate your time and talents, call the Market’s office at 352-796-0268.
