On a personal note: Aurea’s passion for nonprofits and the volunteers or heroes running thembegan after her grueling battle over Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Diagnosed on her birthday in 1999 and after invasive surgery and grueling chemotherapy, which almost killed her, the surgeon told her she’d never be able to speak above a faint whisper because they had to remove the left thoracic nerve to her vocal cord. They also removed half of her left lung, part of her right lung, the lining around her heart, her Thymus and disconnected half of her diaphragm. She has been cancer-free since 2000 and can speak again despite the grim diagnosis. Her miracle story was featured on The 700 Club TV show worldwide many times over and in her TEDX talk in 2021.
