Former Santee Mayor Jim Bartell got a phone call on March 1 of last year from his son, Ryan, who said he had just been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Seven weeks later, he would die in a hospital bed in the state of Washington. It was the last few weeks of his son’s life that prompted Bartell and his wife, Elaine, to approach state Sen. Ben Hueso (D-San Diego) with the idea of submitting a bill in Sacramento.
