And a ray of light, Sunny's third grandchild born…
It’s been a little over a year since Sunny Garcia, the world champion in 2000 and a six-time winner of the Triple Crown, was found near death after a suicide attempt by hanging at his Oregon home.
The forty nine year old had posted this shortly before he was found.
Sunny was subsequently hospitalised, put into an induced coma, was on kidney and liver dialysis, sent to a hospital in California for lung surgery and, now, according to close friends, he’s in a coma in a Texas hospital and undergoing treatment paid for by his wealthy Harvard-educated girlfriend Lori Park, one of the first software engineers at Google.
Our source says Park has the “resolve and the resources” to, if not cure, at least improve Sunny’s condition.
A good person to have your in corner, one might say.
Among Park’s skills and expertise on researchgate.net (a “social networking site for scientists and researchers to share papers, ask and answer questions, and find collaborators”) are neurorehabilitation, motor learning, cognitive rehabilitation, acquired brain injury and physical rehabilitation.
Rumours persist of a split between family and friends on how to treat Sunny, however, something brought into relief this morning with a post from family friend Nicci Lee on the occasion of the birth of Sunny’s third grandchild.
As you know over a year ago Sunny tired to take his life. He has struggled with depression for the last several years of his life. His bloodline and the mother of his children’s bloodline also struggle with a history of depression and suicide.
I had the unique perspective of supporting Sunny’s children since Sunny’s suicide attempt. It was an intimate position where I got to see what they actually had to go through in the aftermath of Sunny’s incident.
I had never seen a battle of dark verses light so up close until this experience. Greed and control verses love.
Seeing his children suffer under this dark power was heart breaking to say the least. They fought to be with there Dad for months with hundreds of thousands of dollars, lawyers, and an unbearable amount of stress but were beaten.
As hard as the kids tried to fight it, having so much faith that light and love would prevail they were beaten down by the dark Sunny had let into his life.

They ended up with their Dad being stolen away from them, zero access to him and have not seen him is over 9 months. The dark had seem to have won.
It was beyond frustrating and heartbreaking to see them go through this. But once again- the Lord works in mysterious ways and yesterday brought in the only thing that could possibly ease Sunny’s children pain- a ball of love, the highest of blessings, a little baby of Sunny’s descent.
His family line continues.
What the “dark power” is remains unclear.
Our source wouldn’t be brought into the matter, saying, “It’s a fucked-up situation.”
