Cutline: The Luna family, of Kingwood, is facing a huge challenge as dad, Patrick, battles cancer. Friends and family have planned a golf tournament for Dec. 14 to help with medical costs. Patrick and Tricia Luna were high school sweethearts. Together since they were 15, the couple will be married 20 years in January. They graduated from Kingwood High School in 1989 and have lived and worked in the community ever since. “They are truly an all-American family,” said family friend Kari Schneider. “They were high school sweethearts who married young and are still in love.” In September, they received the devastating news that Patrick has a rare and aggressive form of cancer. While he has been able to undergo some chemotherapy treatment, Tricia said last week that the cancer has been very aggressive and that Patrick will soon be in hospice care. The Lunas have three children and Tricia is a teacher at Creekwood Middle School, while Patrick is employed at Alliance Recruiting. The news has not been easy to take, and as is often the case, mounting medical costs are another obstacle. Friends and family have organized a golf tournament to help defray some of the medical costs. The tournament is set to take place at Oakhurst Golf Club in Kingwood Dec. 14. Planners are seeking sponsors, as well as raffle and auction items. A foursome team is $500 and registration will begin at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Dinner will be provided after the tournament. The deadline for registration is Nov. 27. While this news and its consequences have been a lot to deal with in a very short period of time, Patrick and Tricia are keeping the faith. “We appreciate all the community’s support and love,” said Tricia. “My mantra throughout all of this has been, ‘God has this.’” For more information about the tournament, contact Randy Brooks at This email address is being protected from spambots.
