Meet SANDRA

One year ago, Perla received terrible news: the redness and swelling on her left breast were due to breast cancer. Not yet 30 years old, the diagnosis took her aback. Lipomas, benign fatty tumors located just below the skin, were a common occurrence for Perla. As a matter of fact, she had a lipoma on her right breast when the lump on her left breast was identified as cancerous.
 
Life changed quickly for Perla after her diagnosis. Time at work was replaced by chemotherapy sessions at the DHR Health Advanced Care Center. Soon, chemotherapy treatment proved successful in shrinking the size of the tumor on her left breast. The surgery that followed had her surgeon confident almost all cancer cells were removed. Perla and her family were relieved.
 
But you can never be too safe with cancer. In order to lower the risk of a recurrence, oncology experts at the Advanced Care Center recommended radiation therapy.
 
Unemployed due to her illness, Perla did not have medical insurance to cover for radiation treatment. By now, medical expenses had taken a toll on her family. Radiation therapy costs seemed out-of-reach. Her patient navigator assisted with her application for funds from our Renaissance Cancer Foundation.
 
“My cancer journey has taught me to be more aware that everyone is fighting a different battle,” says Perla. “I don’t know what sacrifices people may have made to donate to the Foundation, but I do know every dollar makes a difference.”
