A man who’s a well known community leader in Ventura County, and a nationally known political insider because of his role with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation is fighting the battle of his life.

John Heubusch has a rare form of cancer, and is talking about it to raise awareness, and money to fight the disease.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco talks to Heubusch about his battle, which he’s quietly fought as he deals with the everday business of running the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
