Lost to Colon Cancer at 32

I learned that a friend who I went to high school (FSHA) with, Gloria Borges, who was diagnosed at age 28 with stage four colon cancer, passed away yesterday morning (Sun Jan 5th) at the age of 32.  Love, prayers, and support particularly go to her husband Will and her parents, Becky and Mike.

Gloria was such an inspiration, and although she was a year ahead of me at FSHA (class of '00 while I graduated in '01) her life became so amazing after she was diagnosed in 2010!  Please indulge me while I share the LINK TO HER BLOG (WunderGlo) ... to the foundation she created to stop colon cancer THE WUNDERGLO FOUNDATION ... also a very short video she was in which shows just how full of life she was and how much anyone could learn from her/life lessons to take away:
