Celebration of Melinda Gonzales
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Melinda Gonzales is one of those people. Her fight began in June of 2015 when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer which had metastasized to her lungs. Throughout her battle she endured surgeries, radiation treatments and countless chemotherapy treatments with no complaints, a remarkable uplifting attitude and most importantly the strongest faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. She was most recently admitted to the ICU on March 1st and after a 27 day fight, our Lord God called her to his kingdom in heaven. Her body rest peacefully on the morning of March 27, 2018 as her soul journeyed into heaven. Now we are celebrating her courageous fight against breast cancer. To honor Melinda and to celebrate her 2 year 9 month battle, we have decided to support Susan G. Komen in their fight against breast cancer.
Please help us by raising funds to support Susan G. Komen and their efforts to provide education, screening and treatment programs for women and men in our community as well as cutting-edge research so that one day we can live in a world without breast cancer.
Melinda is survived by her adoring Husband of 33 years, Manny Gonzales; her oldest daughter Nicole Gonzales, daughter-in-law Jessica Gonzales and soon to arrive first grandchild, Hollis; her youngest daughter Cassie Poole and son-in-law Travis Poole; her mother Beatriz Sandoval; and her loving siblings Nellie Deanda, Robert Sandoval Jr., Daryle Sandoval, and Irma Sandoval; her mother-in-law Trinidad Gonzales; brother and sister in-laws, many nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles. She goes to be with her father, Robert Sandoval and father-in-law Juan Gonzales in heaven.
Melinda was the most thoughtful, considerate, selfless person. As a loving wife and mother, she looked after her family with the most sincere, kind heart. We will all miss her dearly, but she will continue to thrive in all the hearts she touched. The family thanks everyone for the love and support they have received through the years and recent month. We love you all.
Thank you for your generous support and for helping us honor our angel Melinda.
Love and Blessings,
The Gonzales/Poole/Sandoval Family
