How was Vitor Ray Named?

Vitor Ray is named after Vitor Foti, who was a young and charismatic Brazilian. He had lots of friends because he was an amazing person in so many ways. At 20 years old, Vitor was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. In the midst of much suffering, he never stopped smiling. And with his great determination, Vitor never surrendered to his diagnosis. He was always positive, looking forward, fighting like a warrior. His will to live was truly inspiring. After a year, he lost the battle. His ashes were scattered in the ocean as a sign of freedom. In living tribute, Vitor Ray swims free in the big blue, representing his great spirit.
