Eric and Janell Watson remind local residents to “get out and give the gift of life” by donating blood when possible. “If people want to give the truest gift of support they can donate blood in Coy’s name. That’s a gift that is spread far and wide,” said Eric. Their three-year-old son, Coy, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Burkitt Lymphoma in late May and is undergoing treatment at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. Donations to the Watsons to help with the medical and related expenses of Coy’s treatment may be deposited into the Coy Watson Benefit account at Wells Fargo Bank. Any Wells Fargo branch can accept donations. VHS graduate Isaac Ramos, below, carries a reminder of Coy’s fight with him daily. Eric Watson was Isaac’s football and wrestling coach.
