Anyone who knows Porzia already knows her nurturing spirit and love for all children including her two daughters,  nieces and nephews and students ;Porzia is the head teacher for the Montessori Academy classroom located at the Center for the Homeless.  August 2015, Porzia was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) breast cancer after nearly two years of misdiagnosis (breast cyst).

In March of 2016, Porzia  completed three months of chemo, a lumpectomy and over thirty rounds of radiation...Porzia beat cancer!  The fight for her life left her with a renewed energy and excitement for life.  It has also left her with medical debt of over $40,000 even with medical insurance. 

In August 2017(almost two years excactly from the orginal diagnosis), Porzia was diagnosed with a recurrence of triple negative breast cancer. Porzia remains encouraged and determined to beat cancer once again. This time her journey takes her to the University of Chicago for treatment (nearly 100 miles from home). Your donations will help offset travel costs to and from Chicago, medical deductibles and other expenses incurred as she battles cancer once again.

Sometimes you must fight the battle twice to win it. We are declaring victory in advance. Thank you for your positive thoughts, prayers and support.

Porzia completed the Making Strides: Walk for a World Without Breast Cancer walk this past Saturday. It was a beautiful event and friends and family supported Porzia by walking in South Bend, Atlanta, Phoenix and Iowa. Here is the thank you Porzia recently wrote: I would like to thank everyone for your love and unwavering support during the last few months. My heart is truly overwhelmed. I've tried and failed to come up with words adequate enough to express my gratitude. I will be thanking you for the rest of my life! You all have taken a piece of this tumor and lifted the burden from me. By doing so, I feel weightless. This is much bigger than me and my story. Even though I am working towards complete healing, I already have a testimony. While this should never happen to anyone, I've been given a blessing in disguise in order to help others. This is now my mission. I doubted that I would have the energy today to finish the walk, by God's grace and your strength I made it and felt rejuvenated afterwards. You keep me going! To my family in Arizona, Iowa, Georgia and Indiana, thank you. To all those who I've never met and walked in support of me today, you are also family and I love you. I finished this race for my cousin Zennia and all other women affected by this disease. You give me wings! Love you all beyond measure, we are almost there...

Porzia has her third round of chemo this Friday. She may have a few less hairs on her head but she remains in good spirits and is doing well. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Thanks,
