Columbus Helps Against the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Today 1 in 8 women develop a form of any stage breast cancer and many are looking for a solution and diagnosis for it. Here at Christopher Columbus High School many are gearing up for the fight against breast cancer in hopes putting an end to the lives it takes every year.
Jonathan Lorenzo is a senior at Christopher Columbus High School and is apart of the school’s varsity football team. His mother Lisa is the head photographer for all Columbus sporting events and has been doing so the past four years. “For me before everything happened all was well. I was happy, my family was happy, and most importantly, my kids were happy.” However this happiness didn’t last forever as not to long after Lisa was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. “For me I was a little boy so I don’t remember much, but I would’ve imagined I didn’t know what exactly was going on, but what I do know is that I was always on her side even though I knew she could go any day,” said Jonathan. Since then Jonathan and the rest of his family had continued to help her in her fight against breast cancer.
This story was a message and eyeopener for many in the local Miami community including the community at Christopher Columbus High School. For many years now the school has raised thousands of dollars towards breast cancer research in the way of selling the pink ties students are able to wear every school day. Since then they families like Jonathan’s in the fight against this deadly disease and hope to do so for the years to come.
