Because of the Laird's sacrifice, Dean decided he would split whatever money was raised from the tournament with Carrie Anne and Cole. "They were helping me get all this money and supporting me so I was just thinking I can help them too," Dean said."It was just really nice for Dean to donate some money to us, I mean we are having a hard time over it," Cole added. Carrie Anne finished by saying," He is so caring, so loving, and so giving."
While both families are going through hard times, this shows a community can come together and lend a helping hand. "You see Dean's strength and now we are seeing Cole's strength," Dean's father Noe Garcia said. "Both of these boys are fighting a battle, one a different battle than the other, but they are going to come out winners on the top all the way.
