THE STORY:

A special update from my brother and Vicky's family

My 4 year old niece, Victoria Gallardo, was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. The cause of Rhabdomyosarcoma is unknown. It is a rare tumor with only several hundred new cases per year throughout the United States.

Victoria (Vicky) was a little warrior she fought for her life so she could spend as much time with her loved ones. She was going through a lot of pain when she was going through  chemo but that didn’t stop her from giving us a beautiful smile that would make your heart melt. Now she’s a little angel in the sky watching over us. We love you Mama’s and we miss you so much.

In Loving Memory of Victoria M. Gallardo July 20, 2006 – December 2, 2010

Thank you Ricky and thanks to everyone that is supporting the cause for helping to find a cure. God bless your hearts and also the families that are going through these tough times.

Special thanks from Family Gallardo.

I'm running this year's Los Angeles Marathon in honor of a special little girl, Victoria Gallardo, who recently lost her battle to cancer. We can all learn from her fight; her grace, innocence, and courage. Please consider a gift to honor those gifts she couldn't share with the world. All funds raised will be donated in her loving memory to City of Hope where she spent countless hours fighting a valiant fight. May her spirit live on forever. She reminds me to live each day to its fullest. Carpe Diem.
