MORE THAN PINK Walk Family & Friends Team Challenge Winner - We Are As One

  thumbnail_Image.jpg

Congratulations to Maribel, Team Captain of We Are As One, for winning the first Family & Friends Team Challenge by having the highest number of new registered Walkers! Maribel won gift certificates to Benny’s Tacos for a dine in or catered experience! Thank you to Benny’s Tacos for this generous donation to kick off the first Family & Friends Team Challenge!

Maribel has an incredible story and attributes her team as to the reason why she fights, has faith and believes that she’s going to be okay. She works at the Cecilia Gonzalez De La Hoya Cancer Center at Adventist Health White Memorial Medical Center. In December of 2018, Maribel was diagnosed with breast cancer by their own nurse practitioner. When Maribel was diagnosed, she decided she wanted her colleagues to take care of her because they were part of her family. Her infusion nurse administered her chemo and she received radiation treatment at her job as well. Maribel knew her colleagues would see her with no hair, sick and no breasts (she had a double mastectomy), but she wouldn’t have it any other way because she knew she was in great hands.

Maribel has the love and support from her family including her husband, 2 daughters, parents, brothers, sisters-in-law, cousins, aunts and uncles, all who have been by her side. Her team – colleagues, family and friends – continues to be her reason for smiling in the last year. 

Join individuals like Maribel and Teams like We Are As One at our 2020 MORE THAN PINK Walk! 

Don’t forget that $15 Early Bird Registration is till December 31, 2019!

These topic cards are a valuable tool for women who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, who may be too overwhelmed to even know where to begin to start gathering information.
