Blog: Help Arcadia Grad Scott Raftery Battle Cancer

A Web site has been set up to help Scott Raftery cover travel expenses for his sons to visit him while he battles cancer.

Scott Raftery was Arcadia High School's Athlete of the Year in 1975. Now, Scott is battling cancer.

Scott has been a help to CIF in our community and a mentor to so many kids! Sometimes with cancer, we don't know what to say, or how to help.

Here is an opportunity for those in our community who know Scott to lend a helping hand. A Web site has been set up to raise funds to bring his two out-of-state sons back to visit. The Web site is scottraftery.chipin.com

Should you have trouble, check on Scott Raftery's Facebook page, and you will see the site if you scroll down. It is a secure site through PayPal.

Just want to let our community know. Many did not know Scott was sick, and I appreciate Patch as it is a great site to be able to spread the word!

So so sad to hear that he passed this morning, I remember him as such a jovial and warm spirit!
