Father In Enkyboys Had Hopes He’d ‘Beat’ Cancer This Year
Despite his diagnosis, the Enkyboys continued to produce content while spreading awareness about colon cancer. But as the months passed, content slowed, leaving fans worried for Gonzalez. In response, he updated fans on his condition in November.
“Yes, I am okay, we haven’t posted because the last past couple of months, it’s been horrible for me. I barely started moving again my hands and feet. Cancer sucks, it sucks the life outta you, makes you feel like you have nothing to live for.”
Still, Randy appeared hopeful about his diagnosis–even encouraging anyone affected by cancer to ‘fight.’
“You have to be strong to fight cancer and beat it. I wanna be a testimony of this in a year when I’m still alive and when I beat it. But overall, me, my family, my wife, my kids, we’re all good. We’re in California happy, we go back to Texas soon. We’re good.”
