Oscar, who is battling cancer, meets 49ers players and owner

Apr 29, 2015 at 2:49 PM--


You have probably been following Oscar's story here on 49erswebzone.com. He is a lifelong San Francisco 49ers fan who has been battling Sarcoma Cancer, a rare form of cancer that impacts about 10,000 people a year. Upon learning of his story within our forums, the Niner Faithful fanbase has united to help him exceed his $15,000 fundraising goal that will help his family with funeral costs. Doctors estimate that Oscar only has days to live.

We attempted to do our part by spreading his story and helping bring awareness toward this rare form of cancer. We published multiple stories about Oscar's battle with him and his wife Heather keeping our community updated.

We even reached out to the 49ers organization to see what they could do for Oscar, and they came through.

Today, 49ers running back Reggie Bush posted a photo with Oscar, who was scheduled to get a tour of Levi's Stadium, on Twitter.


Apparently, Oscar also got to have lunch with Jed York, which was a classy move by the 49ers CEO.


A big thank you to Bob Lange, the 49ers' Director of Communications, who likely got the ball rolling for Oscar. And another big thank you to those in the media who helped us share Oscar's story, including Matt Maiocco, Matt Barrows, and Ryan Sakamoto.

As of today, Oscar has raised nearly $16,000 for his family and has become an inspiration to many fans on this site and beyond. He, his wife, two young children, and all of those that have the privilege of knowing him remain in our prayers.

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night, which will also serve as the team's Alumni Game. Of course, that means something very different this year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Usually, 49ers alumni would be in attendance. This year, 95 alumni will "attend" as fan cutouts, arranged in the shape of "SF" in section 109. 49ers players selected defensive lineman Arik Armstead as this year's Perry/Yonamine Unity Award for his off-field community efforts and work with the Armstead Academic Project. A $10,000 donation will be made to his charity of choice, the Players Philanthropy

49ers' Ronald Blair had a setback, PUP players expected to miss more time, says Kyle Shanahan

Don't expect the San Francisco 49ers to get defensive linemen Ronald Blair and Jullian Taylor, or center Weston Richburg, anytime soon. Kyle Shanahan revealed on Friday that Blair suffered a setback with his recovery from the ACL injury he sustained last season. That will push back his return. "Ronald Blair did have a setback," Shanahan said. "Had to redo some things to his knee, some stuff that they messed up in it. He is doing a lot better from that but that's why he's going to be a couple of weeks longer than expected." All three, in fact, aren't expected to return until sometime between Weeks 10 and 12 now. While they will each be eligible to return from physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) sooner, Shanahan says they won't be healthy enough to do so until

Robert Saleh believes 49ers' ability to develop players can help offseason cornerback conundrum

Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, Jason Verrett, Ahkello Witherspoon, Dontae Johnson, and Jamar Taylor. Those are all San Francisco 49ers defensive backs who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next offseason. Emmanuel Moseley and Ken Webster are scheduled to become exclusive-rights free agents, while Marcell Harris will be a restricted free agent. It may have been more efficient to rattle off the names of those who will be under contract. The 49ers defensive backfield will likely look very different in 2021. The team has some young talent that it is high on, like Tim Harris and recently-claimed Parnell Motley. How does San Francisco balance trying to patch together an effective secondary amid injuries while evaluating
