It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of sarcoma warrior, Angela Mora.
Angela was an outspoken advocate for cancer causes, donating her brilliant culinary talents to help raise money for the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and most recently at the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation.
Angela first contacted the foundation in late summer of last year. Although she was currently undergoing treatment, and working full time at a local restaurant, Angela was full of energy and radiated positivity. She spoke about her desire to use her passion and talent as a chef to give back. At the time she was planning a private dinner event and was inquiring about donating a portion of the proceeds to the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation.
Angela continued her advocacy work as a honored guest at the 2016 Stories From the Vineyard gala, where she donated a private dinner that was well received by the gala attendees. The money raised from her donations helped the foundation exceed their fundraising goal, and will in turn help directly impact the lives of hundreds of people in the sarcoma community.
Her courage and attitude toward her diagnosis was truly inspiring. It was an honor having Angela as an active supporter of the foundation. She will be deeply missed by many.
We are honored to have known Angela and feel privileged to have been a benefactor of her advocacy. She shared a common vision we hold: end sarcoma as we know it.
In lieu of flowers, Angela’s family has asked donations to be made in Angela’s memory to the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation.
