Lupe has been battling cancer since September of 2018. A nurse by profession, she has been out of work due to treatments. When looking for financial assistance, she was coming up empty: “They don’t realize the stress on patients who are trying to go through treatment and surgeries and are unable to work.”

Lupe and her family of five were behind on their mortgage, car note and other bills when Tony Foundation stepped in to lend them emergency financial assistance. We met Lupe at her treatment center, one of the Texas Oncology locations in San Antonio.  Telemundo was on hand to capture the special moment. They spoke with Lupe as well as TF founder Tony Laudadio. Several of our board members were there for the special occasion, as well: President Scott Patterson, Vice President Tim Laudadio (with his wife Nanette), and Treasurer Tony Aguilar.

We are honored to be able to help Lupe and her family, all thanks to the generosity of our donors. Please see our video clips below:
