Bonnie Angueira is a true voice in the fight against breast cancer. She is undergoing treatment and she is speaking out. When she’s not in her treatment sessions: she is a mother of five children, an artist, and an advocate for Do It Like A Woman and its cause. According to Bonnie, “Cancer and its processes are brutal and we all express our emotions differently. When you are going through cancer, it is important to find ways to say what you feel, to connect with others and to find new opportunities to give, that is why we started Do It Like A Woman.” She continues, “Do It Like A Woman gives all of us women an opportunity to play to win. Win against the despair, Win against the odds & ultimately live to beat the stigma of cancer so we can live as every WOMAN should–fully.”
Lauren Angueira, who is in her twenties, is described as a sometimes “too” fast talking gal. But, as she and the rest of the team at DILAW explain, if she comes up with something provocative or edgy it’s to get your attention in order to make a difference—never to offend. She is a former journalism & political science major and used to work as a marketing officer for an International non-profit—a lot of training, which she is now thankful for. Currently, she is a freelance photographer and writer & dedicates the majority of her time to DILAW and its mission. According to her, DILAW is her “child”–it takes up most if not all of her time and leaves her sleepless most nights, but she loves it & even more so, believes in it.
