We are proud to announce our 2 recipients for our charity fundraiser. Trina Soto of San Pedro/Carson and Tina Montanez of Torrance. As both of these ladies fight for their lives, we hope that our impact will ease at least some suffering.
Today we will introduce you to one of the two candidates. Here is Trina Soto's story....
"Up until a few weeks ago Trina Soto was enjoying living a normal life, working hard and raising her awesome 17 year old son Jordan. Trina is a wonderful mother to Jordan, a loving daughter, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, and works extremely hard as the sole financial supporter of her family. On September 22, 2016 her life was about to be turned upside down. Trina went to the ER complaining of abdominal pain, she was given a CAT Scan which revealed a mass on her pancreas and spots on her liver. She was immediately admitted her to the hospital where they performed another CAT Scan and two biopsies. On October 5, 2016 doctors diagnosed her with STAGE 4 pancreatic cancer. Due to the size of her tumor it is inoperable at this time. In order to contain and shrink the tumors Trina’s Cancer has to be treated aggressively. She began Chemotherapy at UCLA Medical Center on October 7, 2016 and will continue with this aggressive chemotherapy with hopes to shrink the tumors and stop the cancer from spreading. Trina is only 46 years old and she has not been able to return to work since her visit to the Emergency room on September 22, 2016.That being said this situation has put a tremendous strain financially, emotionally and physically."
