Maria Elena Caraveo resizeimage 65
We are Team Paloma. We do participate in the Run for the Rose to honor the memory of our mom and aunt, Maria Elena Caraveo. Maria fought a short and hard battle with an astrocytoma and went “home” in April of 2012. Her nickname was “Paloma,” which means dove in Spanish and so we thought it was a perfect name for our team. We have participated since 2013. We have since decided as a family that we would do this every year. It was such a great, comforting feeling to be surrounded by thousands of people who all have ONE thing in common!
