Remembering Theresa Sanchez Robinson's Legacy
In lieu of flowers, please join me in remembering Theresa Sanchez Robinson. To remember Theresa Sanchez Robinson’s legacy and her journey with breast cancer, I have decided to support Susan G. Komen in their fight against breast cancer.
Mom was a quiet and humble woman who did not share her personal journey with many people. She had no idea she had breast cancer until her family brought her to Austin, Texas for a thorough medical workup. Unfortunately, not only did she have stage four breast cancer, but the cancer had already spread to localized spots on her spine. She immediately started all types of medical treatments and stayed with her family in Austin, Texas for 9 months. Remarkably, at the end of her treatment, she was in remission of the cancer. The doctor said it was rare that a patient with such a progressed case would respond so well to the treatments. Unfortunately, after 4 years her recovery ended quickly on April, 14th 2020.
Mom was a career teacher. After spending the first part of her career teaching first grade, she transitioned to fifth grade teaching STEM related subjects. Over the years, she earned many awards and accolades from her students and colleagues. She was always inspiring her students to pursure science and math. Therefore, her family would like honor her memory with this fund which will honor all facets of her remarkable life.
Susan G. Komen funds more breakthrough research than any other breast cancer non-profit, while providing lifesaving support to millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide, so patients can live better lives, longer. They provide fact-based information to empower people to make informed health decisions, while ensuring that all people have access to quality screening, diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. They advocate for government funding of critical patient support while creating a community that unites and supports everyone affected by breast cancer.
Your donation will support treatment assistance programs, research grants, low-cost mammograms and 24/7 access to the Komen Breast Care Helpline. With your generous support, we can keep Theresa Sanchez Robinson’s legacy alive.
