Irma Vasquez Benefit Barrel Race
Organized by: Anna Waxman
EVENT DATE Jun 21, 2014
Irma is a Bastrop, TX resident that has stage three carcinoma breast cancer that has spread to a lymph node. Irma left Guatemala in the 80’s to escape Guerrilla warfare. She never had the privilege of an education. Therefore she can not read or write. She has cleaned houses and sold tamales to support herself and her daughter, who is now 19 and pursuing a nursing degree at San Angelo State University. She has pride and has never sought government assistance or any type of hand out. She has very little, but works for what little she has. Irma deserves this.
