Ray O’Canto, a man never at a loss for words, has two to share with everyone: “Thank you.”
The Fresno media personality known for his “Get Dirty!” call after Fresno State won the 2008 NCAA baseball championship is at Hinds Hospice after a two-month fight with cancer.
Last weekend, during a visit from GV Wire Publisher Darius Assemi, O’Canto recorded a video message for everyone, and it was classic, upbeat Ray.

‘I Love This Community’

“I just want to tell you how overwhelmed I am by the amount of support I’ve received from my friends, who have just rallied around me,” he said.
O’Canto, also known as the host of the food/travel program “DineOut Along the Road,”  said he was getting stronger. But he added, “who knows what our last breath will be? Only God knows that.”
GoFundMe account has been established for the former Fresno State baseball standout.
“I love this community, I love what it means to me,” O’Canto said. “I’ll always try to uplift it in any way I can.”
