East County Today would like to send as many prayers as possible to Antioch City Councilman Gary Agopian and his family this evening after its been shared early this morning that he has brain cancer. He will be going in for a biopsy soon to find out more information about the disease.
Even with the outlook unknown at this time, the Councilman is staying strong and clinging to his faith while finding the positives in the situation. In fact, as people are finding out, they are leaving him with beautiful messages of support, prayers and keeping he and his family in their thoughts via social media.
Via text message, Mr. Agopian thanks everyone for the support and he will remain transparent about his fight which will be determined after more tests.
Politics aside, Agopian is a good man who cares about his city, the people in it, and sees the potential of a city that can move forward. Over the years, Antioch has been a challenge to many, but he always seems to find the positive and talk up the city when many others wouldn’t. As much as he believes in Antioch and willing to fight for it, we know he will put the same amount of effort into beating this thing.
Just like his past has highlighted, he will fight the good fight and we hope our readers have his back!
Until more information is made available, please send prayers his way!
