Saundra Gonzales - My story:
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on January 2, 2018, only 3 weeks after undergoing major back surgery where they reconstructed my entire lower back…I am officially the bionic woman with the amount of hardware in my spine.
On Valentines Day last year, I underwent my first of 4 surgeries for breast cancer, and I am so very proud to say I AM A SURVIVOR AND AM NOW CANCER-FREE.
I thank God, my faith, and my AMAZING daughter Sami who has been there for me each and every single day through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sami is truly the HERO here!
I also want to thank my fabulous friends who continue to be there for me and have risen me to where I am today. I want to thank my wonderfully talented and caring surgeons, Dr. Lisa Guerra and Dr. Mark Gaon, as they are truly the best of the best. I am truly grateful and feel so very blessed. How great is our God!!!
I registered for the the Komen Race for the Cure because I wanted to take action and be More Than Pink™. I have formed a team this year named the “Sassy Tatas”, which represents some of my friends who are survivors (Cindy Evans, Melinda Green, Susan, Lori Frank, Laurie G, Jame J., Julie D), all who have fought this battle, for those friends of friends (Jami G., Dena, Tiffany, Linda) who have fought this courageous fight, and all of those beautiful and amazing women who lost their fight (Barbra Cadigan, Kassie and so many others) and will NEVER be forgotten….God Bless.
Thank you to all who supported me with your donations last year!!
