In spring of 2015, Sandra was diagnosed with early-stage cancer and publicly documented her story. While undergoing aggressive treatment and the subsequent extensive complications, Sandra decided to allow unrestricted filming access. This decision was inspired by her obligation to educate others in taking an active role in their own health care, to provide caregivers with insight and tools for day-to-day patient care and medical advocacy, while also influencing lawmakers to pass legislation that provide no-cost insurance coverage and increased hours for screening accessibility. Sandra’s open, uncensored communications has been acknowledged with several prestigious honors including Capitol Hill’s Congressional Families Excellence in Cancer Awareness Award and City of Hope’s Spirit of Life Award presented to her by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden.
