Victoria was a fearless competitor on and off the court. In the spring of 2016 she faced her toughest opponent: cancer, lung cancer (ALK) to be specific. The cancer was not caused by anything Victoria did or by genetics; we were told it was a freak of nature, one in a million. She actually had no symptoms from her lungs: her initial symptom was back pain. Over the course of her cancer journey, we learned that lung cancer is one of the least researched cancers due to the stigma attached to it. More people die yearly from lung cancer than breast, colon, and pancreatic cancers combined. She lived and was able to have a great quality of life during this journey because of the grace of God and the advancements in research.
For this reason, it is our wish that in lieu of flowers, donations to lung cancer research be made in her honor and memory at donate.lungcancerresearchfoundation.org.
“For in Him she moves and lives and has her being.”
