Sergio Mendoza lost his wife to breast cancer in 2017.
“I walk with my children, my mother and father – my mother is also a breast cancer survivor, and I walk with our team, which are friends and the ones that also feel aligned in this fight against breast cancer. It’s important not to look at breast cancer as something that is unsurmountable or that will always defeat us. My wife was defeated by breast cancer but that’s not the future,” he said in a statement.MORE NEWS: Fort Lauderdale Police Investigating School Threats
