Please help Edgar and his Family

Edgar Conde has worked at the Crown Bistro for over 25 years and has served the Coronado community and its visitors. The Bistro has become his second home and he has become like family to all of us. Those who know Edgar know him to be hardworking, caring and a friend to all who he came across. He always made a point to get to know new faces and make familiar faces feel at home here at the bistro. Edgar was diagnosed with Fibrosarcoma, and has had surgery and is now in treatment. He has been unable to work during this time. We are all hoping for the best for Edgar and doing what we can to lend a hand to him and his family; Claudia his wife, Elias his 15-year-old son and Justin his 24-year-old son who is currently serving the U.S. Army. Please consider donating to his GoFundMe to help ease his families worries for finances and medical expenses during his time in treatment. We at the Crown Bistro are extremely grateful for those who have offered Edgar and his family their generosity and kind words during this difficult time. Thank you very much!
