Free Animal Doctor, a nonprofit veterinary clinic, provides much-needed medical services for pet owners. "No one has been denied service for not being able to pay," Leah Walker tells ABC7. They are grateful for the clinic, and like many, they have also been financially affected by the pandemic.

I think it is important when someone wants to give back through a nonprofit to try to support them, and so we found the Free Animal Doctor."

Jamie Spears' attorney noted that "there are no real reasons to suspend or remove him" and has argued that the decision to resign "at the right time" has to do with settling the "public battle with his daughter."

Candles with colorful designs and scents recall home and family and invoke the most treasured remembrance memories. These original candles pay tribute to Latin culture and show its owner's most creative and motivating side, Marcella Gómez, a woman of Salvadoran origin who has captured her love for art and her roots in her business.

These candles celebrate life, and above all, they represent our Latin culture, that's why I wanted it to be the best candle possible, it had to be beautiful because they represents my mother, my grandmother, my aunt; that's why I put all my effort", explaied Marcella.

Among her candles is called Tears, which means one of the most challenging moments in her life. She has given them the most meaningful teaching, which she shares as a motivational example to inspire others to take care of themselves.

It's called "Tears" because on October 20, 2020 they told me that I had breast cancer and I began to think that crying is not bad, it is something natural, but every time I cried it was like cleaning. This is how that candle is born, as a reminder that there is nothing wrong with crying." She quoted to "La Opinion" in an interview.
