Our beautiful daughter was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June, 2012 at the MAYO Clinic. The tumor was inoperable. She began her chemo treatments at the Helen Dillard Pancreatic Center at University Of California at San Francisco in July of that year. In April, 2013, she relocated to southern California to be near all of her family. Christina continued her treatments with a private doctor at the UCLA medical center.
Christina was born on April 8, 1969. After graduating from CV High School in LaCrescenta, California she attended Pasadena City College and Cal State Northridge. She spent twenty years of her life as a workman’s compensation claim representative. She was married on August 23, 1997. Before her illness she relocated to San Ramon, California, to accept a job opportunity. She enjoyed her time there and the beauty of northern California.
Christina took every opportunity to make people happy, to smile and to laugh through her incredible wit and humor. Her kind and giving heart showed through her actions each day of her life, always thinking of others and giving to them before herself. She was accepting, compassionate and forgiving, seeing the best in everyone even through her illness.
She asked for two final wishes in her last days. One was to donate to Relay For Life. And the second wish was instead of flowers to have donations made to help fight pancreatic cancer.
After a two year hard fought battle without complaining, cancer finally over took her and she passed away on March 7, 2014. She always will be in our hearts and in the hearts of all those who lives she touched.
