From NFL dreams to healing hands

Everyone has goals, everyone has dreams, but not everyone has the opportunity to make them a reality. For Del Mar College student and kinesiology major Ace Navarijo, this statement became his untimely truth after enduring a Friday night high school football game that forever altered his path.
