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.
