Mom with cancer needs car repairs to take dream vacation

Time could be short for Diana Quiroz. She has terminal cancer.

But she has dreams.

“There’s so much I want to accomplish,” Quiroz says.

A former licensed vocational nurse, she understands her situation. Quiroz, 46, recently was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, her third such diagnosis since 2003.

She tried surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The cancer now is so advanced that she and her doctors have decided to stop treatment, allowing her to concentrate on the time she has left.
