Lorie Torrez : Future Cancer Survivor

Our friend and MAXIMUS co-worker Lorie Torrez is fighting a battle with Multiple Myeloma.  Multiple myeloma is a cancer that forms in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. Plasma cells help you fight infections by making antibodies that recognize and attack germs.  Multiple myeloma causes cancer cells to accumulate in the bone marrow, where they crowd out healthy blood cells.

Lorie was diagnosed in late August and her doctors have chosen an aggressive treatment plan to help her body fight the attack.  Her medications and treatments are adding up financially and her treatment plan can result in missing work, adding additional financial stress to her fight.  Lorie is a fighter, but it’s going to be a long tiring road with the possibility of a bone marrow transplant upcoming.  Lorie is a beautiful person with a huge heart.  She’s a loyal friend and just a wonderful person to know.  So, we ask for your help.  She could use prayers and words of encouragement if you have them and if you can donate financially to help Lorie fight her battle, it would be greatly appreciated by all that love her.
