Two Years Ago Today A Woman Loses Her Battle With Breast Cancer

It was two years ago today that a woman named Adriana Yanez lost her battle with breast cancer.  But I know that now she rests in a better place and her legacy of what she stood for lives on.  The legacy to educate women of all ages about how important self breast exams are and mammograms.

Adriana Yanez of Deltona died on Feb. 20, 2010 after a battle with breast cancer. Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation granted her a wish: to reimburse a friend, who paid $2,000 to fly Yanez’s parents from Venezuela to Florida to be with her. Yanez died before the wish was granted.

Adrianan M Yanez

In the U.S., a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes and a woman dies from the disease every 13 minutes.  Adriana Yanez of Deltona was one of the recipients of a wish granted through Making Memories. A friend, also a single mom, decided to pay $2,000 to fly her parents from Venezuela to Central Florida after her health began to deteriorate rapidly and fund-raising was trickling in. She really wanted her mom there. … She had no family here.

But Yanez dreamed of paying back the money. It meant the world for her that someone was willing to help.  Yanez, 44, lost her battle to cancer Feb. 20, 2012 before Making Moments could provide her the money. But her wish did not go unheard. Making Memories dropped a check in the mail to pay back her friend .
