Chavez's family is deeply concerned about his condition, and his father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. expressed his concern for his son, given that he has children.

"I feel sorry for him because he has young children and he is missing the opportunity to spend time with them. I am incredibly worried that he is at risk of losing his mind and getting into a serious accident, especially if he drives at night at high speed. I'm also worried about the risk of a heart attack caused by all those pills," said Chavez Sr.
