Dominic Guzman, 5 years old, passed away on September 24, 2019, after a 21 month battle against cancer.  Dominic was born in Ventura to Rosa Rogers O'Reilly and Juan Guzman Barajas.  He had many passions, including nerf guns, fashion, music, dancing, Popeye, comic books, and so much more. He loved spending time with his family, whether they were having a BBQ, a nerf war, a soccer match, a birthday party or a foosball tournament. He was the boss!

Dominic had a short but full life. He loved going to the swap meet, thrift stores, parks, library, and his favorite restaurants.  He also had many adventures including traveling to Mexico, horseback riding, going to theme parks and the fair to ride roller coasters, visiting the snow, the beach, and the river.   He was also a collector of many things including rocks, sticks, nerf guns, swords, books, and treasures.

Dominic's personality was bigger than life. He was passionate, loving, creative, stubborn, funny, polite, organized and observant.  He was kind, although he sometimes had a mischievous sense of humor.  He loved to have fun, especially with his sister Jade and favorite cousin Josh.  During his last summer the three of them were often watching music videos, going to karaoke, playing soccer, or waiting for the ice cream man.

Dominic was loved by many, from family and friends, to nurses and teachers.  He will be remembered for his epic dance moves, fun loving attitude, and his fighting spirit.  He will be carried forever in the hearts of many.


Dominic Guzman is your normal young boy who loves superheroes, riding bikes and playing baseball or soccer. He loves jumping on trampolines with his cousins and older sister.  He was enjoying his first year of preschool.  He would love to just play and be a kid.  Shortly before Christmas in 2017,  Dominic's average kid routine changed dramatically.   Doctors diagnosed Dominic with constipation, possibly due to antibiotics used for an ear infection.  Treatments for constipation didn't seem to work, and finally an ultrasound was ordered.  The ultrasound changed Dominic and his family's life in an instant when a growth was found.  Dominic was sent to Children's Hospital and more tests and scans were done.  By Christmas Eve, Dominic was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuro Blastoma.  Now he is busy with doctor appointments, chemotherapy, radiation surgeries and stem cell therapy.  Very intensive treatment for any person but especially for a boy who is only 3 years old.  He's been a trooper, and continues to impress with his resilience.  Still riding bikes and playing when he's feeling okay to do so.


We are starting this fund to help his parents (Juan and Rosa) be at Dominic's side for all the trips to chemotherapy and doctor appointments, and try to help ease the financial stress.  There are medical bills, co-pays, gas, food, and basic needs such as food, utilities, and household needs.  The family is always quick to offer help when friends and family are in need, and now they are the ones who could use some help.  All donations are appreciated.  Thank you from little Dominic and his family, Rosa, Juan and Jade.
