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!
