Large OC Family, Including Child With Cancer, Blindsided By Eviction
ORANGE (CBS) — An Orange County family was kicked out of their home Thursday morning despite paying the rent on time, and, now, eight people, including a child with cancer, are homeless.
“My brothers and sisters thought because they brought lots of cops that we were criminals or something,” said 10-year-old Jesus Ramirez, who is battling Lymphoma. He’s undergone six surgeries to treat cancer.
He and his mother were returning from Children’s Hospital to the home their family rents in Orange only to find sheriff’s deputies serving them an eviction notice. The family had just minutes to grab what they could before the locks were changed behind them.
