The Start Of Our Journey
Saving Pennies 4 A Cure
Saving Pennies 4 A Cure journey is inspired by our founder Sharon Rivera-Sanchez who underwent a roller coaster of emotions when she was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Her diagnosis was a result of a routine mammogram that left her stunned. The chemo and radiation therapy, though cured her, took a considerable toll on her physical and mental health.
Rivera Sanchez knew at the very moment that she had a huge battle ahead of her, and during that time, she decided to give back to the community by spreading awareness and advocating for underserved patients. Today she is a part of research looking for ways to detect recurrences.
