The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center announces Bridget's Gift, a special fund honoring Yuma native and inspiration Bridget Martinez. Bridget was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in 2008. She faced breast cancer the same way she faced any obstacle - with determination, a positive attitude and laughter. Through out her journey, she touched countless lives and was a friend to everyone she met.
Bridget's wish was to give the gift of breast cancer education and resource awareness to her community. She wanted to develop funds for breast exams, resource programs and to lend financial support to patients and families affected by breast cancer. Bridget's fight will continue through Bridget's Gift and will help members of the community affected by this horrific disease. Her incredible spirit will live on through Bridget's Gift and through friends and family that carry out her dream.
