Staff at St. Mary’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders share their thoughts and memories of Lorena Du Bois


Staff at St. Mary’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders share their thoughts and memories of Lorena Du Bois, who helped make October 13 Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day! They also wore Purple in honor of Lorena and “her day.”

“Everyone has a purpose in life, a mission to achieve. One person’s journey was to live fully each and every day and bring awareness to a disease that affects so many lives. To have the strength and courage to battle your own illness and stand on the front lines of public awareness to bring light to a day that never was-means the world to those who cared for her and those she never met. So, on this day our team wears purple as we celebrate Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day!”

“Love of life, courage, strong spirit, kindness, love for family, pleasant smile, strong will for living, a joy to care for.”

“Lorena had a smile that never faded. Her whole face lit up when she spoke of her family and her life. She always pushed herself to the outer limits.”

“I remember her dancing when she got good news about her lab results. She told me a story about zip lining and she was so excited. When she told the story she was overcome with emotion reliving the event. Lorena’s love, strength, courage have made me believe that this life is a journey to enjoy.”

“Lorena was one of the most loving, caring souls that I had ever met. She had a zest for life and a love for her family that was second to none. She was determined never to let her disease interfere with anything she set her mind to doing. She was a ray of sunshine, even on cloudy days. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.”
