Meet Maria Villagomez
Maria reaches her 5th year of recovery this October - her homestretch year. Originally from California, she relocated to New Orleans about 2.5 years ago and participated in our inaugural Pink Bra Run in 2016. During one of her check-up visits to California that she takes every six months, she had lunch with a group of her 1965 classmates from Pacific High School of San Leandro, CA. Maria told her friends about the Pink Bra Run and her friend, Sandy Morris, suggested that her friends donate items to decorate her bra. As you can see, the finished bra is spectacular! Maria expressed a sincere and heartfelt appreciation for her friends' gesture - she said it meant a lot to her. So here's a shout out to Sandy Morris and the P.H.S. San Leandro class of 1965. Thank you for supporting these courageous ladies like Maria... it means more than you may realize.
