Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the News

Located this news item from February 4, 2012: Former Mason City [IA] woman has college surgical unit named in her honor http://globegazette.com/news/local/former-mason-city-woman-has-college-surgical-unit-named-in/article_0d620802-4ef5-11e1-9839-0019bb2963f4.html . From what I have found and read on Ms. Gonzalez, she was a true inspiration.

Sherry (Brant) Gonzalez died from ACC last March 22nd. The Miller-Motte Technical College named their new surgical technology suite after her on January 27, 2012, honoring the way that she "continued to change futures and lives when she helped her fellow students and also when she was an instructor..."-quote from another article: http://www.clarksvilleonline.com/2012/01/25/miller-motte-technical-college-to-hold-ribbon-cutting-for-surgical-technology-suites-new-name-and-new-equipment/

And a third article, showing a photo of the suite: http://www.theleafchronicle.com/article/20120131/BUSINESS/301310046/Miller-Motte-surgical-unit-in-Clarksville-renamed

I learned about Sherry Brant Gonzalez through her father's obituary of January 27, 2012, which includes a request for memorial contributions to ACCRF:  http://www.thestarpress.com/article/20120128/OBITUARIES/201280326 .

I send my sympathy to the family for their great loss. And I recognize that Mason City has lost not one but two shining lights.
