Remembering colon cancer warrior Frankie Melendez Jr.

News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – We have some sad news to report from the Yoga Warriors Fighting Colon Cancer organization. 

We lost another warrior this week. 

Frankie Melendez Jr. died from complications from colon cancer. 

Frankie was a volunteer director for ‘Get Your Rear in Gear-Arkansas’.

And because of him, Yoga Warriors received a $10,000 grant from the ‘Colon Cancer Coalition’.

This is a picture of the two of us accepting donations for our organizations from the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality last year. 

We will miss you, Frankie. 

I hope you all will join us Saturday, April 20 as we continue to get the message out about early detection for colon cancer at our 6th annual event. 

It starts at 10 a.m. at the Doubletree Hotel. 

It’s for all levels of yoga fitness, even if you’ve never done it. 

We’re raising money to benefit cancer survivors, so we’ll be selling raffle tickets, yoga warriors swag, taking donations and giving away free stuff. 

Hope to see you on the 20th.
