announced his recent cancer diagnosis.

LOS ANGELES, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- PADRES Contra El Cancer, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and their families, hosted its inaugural 5k Run/Walk at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. National Spokespersons Eva Longoria Parker, star of Desperate Housewives, and Fernando Del Rincon, news anchor for Univision's Primer Impacto, joined close to 800 runners and walkers in raising more than fifty thousand dollars that will be used to expand services to families who have a child with cancer in the greater Los Angeles area.

"I am so happy that today was such a wonderful success. This was our inaugural run/walk and it was rewarding to be amongst almost 800 people who found a common cause in PADRES Contra El Cancer and their support of children with cancer and their families," remarked PADRES National Spokesperson Eva Longoria Parker.

Eva Longoria Parker also showed her support for her colleague Fernando Del Rincon, also a spokesperson for PADRES Contra El Cancer, who shared for the first time his recent cancer diagnosis and his personal experience. "I was shocked to hear about Fernando's diagnosis. It is great that his cancer was caught in its early stages. That's why it is so important for everyone, including your children, to have regular health exams," stated Eva Longoria Parker.

Only 3 weeks after his surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his bladder, Fernando Del Rincon joined the hundreds of runners in running the Inaugural Stand for HOPE! 5k. "I know first-hand the fears every family experiences with a cancer diagnosis. I know what each child feels and fears. I also understand ever more so, why PADRES is such an important organization for so many people. I thank PADRES for supporting me through this difficult time and for helping me understand the diagnosis, advocating for me and for providing me with emotional support. They did for me what they have done for thousands of children and families for the past 23 years," remarked Del Rincon. "Today I am blessed to be a cancer survivor."
