Heaven gained another precious angel on Friday, November 14, 2014. My sweet friend of 12 years is now resting comfortably in the arms of Jesus.
I have never known a more vigilant warrior than Andrea Poncio! She would have surgery and be home in days and out-walking me when I would take her for post visits, treatments and other outings.
She surprised even the doctors in May when she pulled through a 6-week intense critical care stay in Methodist where the doctors felt the chance of survival was slim.
Never one to stay home, she was always wanting to be involved in everything that her weaken body would allow her to endure. She loved playing Bridge, 42, and Bunko and was a good sport winning or losing!
There have been many hills and valleys in the last 2.5 years after being diagnosed with metastatic disease. I can truly say that she was one of the greatest warriors of cancer I have ever known.
Thankful she is no longer in pain and fighting the battle, but resting peacefully, breathing deeply, and dancing with my baby girl. I'll miss you my dear friend!!
In honor of our Angel! Donations can be made in her memory by contributing below to a cause she loved and believed in.
