Meet MARIA MAYRENA
Maria Mayrena has always thought of herself as a fortunate person.
She is grateful her cancer diagnosis came as early as it did. Her best friend had not been so lucky; she lost her battle to the disease only one month after diagnosis. With this in mind, Maria sought medical attention very shortly after her initial symptoms.
Blessed with the unwavering support of her two daughters and her son, Maria Mayrena has navigated her cancer journey fearlessly.
The Renaissance Cancer Foundation provided financial support to start oncology treatment at the DHR Health Advanced Care Center as soon as possible.
“I am forever indebted to the Foundation for helping me start treatment so fast,” says Maria Mayrena. “If I could personally thank every person that has donated, I would!”
With a little luck and endless faith, Maria Mayrena will soon be cancer-free and help people in the community. Once she feels better, she hopes to give back by raising awareness of the importance of early detection.
