Welcome to our team fundraising page!
Welcome to TEAM POSITIVE VIBES ONLY!
OUR STORY: In January of 2021 my mom, my hero, Cecilia, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Devastated and overwhelmed by this news, we immediately took action and adopted POSITIVE VIBES ONLY. Despite the unknowns throughout the process we have continued to take every test, scan, as one step at a time and live each day to the absolute fullest with positivity. After 1 aborted whipple procedure surgery, 12 rounds of the toughest chemotherapy, 5 bouts of radiation, and a successful whipple procedure surgery to remove her tumor in January 2022, my mom is the epitome of strength and resilience and the definition of a fighter. We are looking to continue to defy odds against pancreatic cancer and with your help we can work to do just that!
