Merchants Collect for Owner of Cup-o-Ccino

The Cold Spring Merchants Association is distributing collection boxes to local retailers to collect funds for John Arguello, owner of Cup-O-Ccino at 92 Main Street, as he battles colorectal cancer that has spread to his lymph nodes. The family also has established a fundraising site online, which so far has raised more than $10,000.

Arguello was diagnosed in March and has been unable to work after going through chemotherapy and surgery. “This illness has affected our family not only emotionally, but now also financially and John is still struggling with the complications from the surgery,” his wife, Jessica, wrote.

  1. Your love and support is greatly appreciated by John and his family. Cold Spring has always had an amazing community, and it’s amazing to witness it coming together for John. There is a golf outing and dinner scheduled for September 25 at The Beekman Country Club. More details will be posted soon.

  2. John is the second young person I know of to have to deal with this particularly ugly form of cancer this year. I wish John and his family strength and serenity as they seek to overcome such a difficult challenge. Cancer sucks: there’s no other way to put it.

  3. MI SOLIDARIDAD CON JOHN Y JESSICA, DIOS ESTÁ OBRANDO SOBRE ÉL Y SOBRE LA ENFERMEDAD. ESTAMOS ORANDO PARA QUE SANES COMPLETAMENTE TU CUERPO. CONFÍA EN DIOS, PON EN SUS MANOS TU DOLOR Y DÉJALE OBRAR A ÉL. DIOS NUNCA SE EQUIVOCA. MI CORAZÓN CON USTEDES.
