About this Article
Gloria De La Cruz has been diagnosed with and treated for two rare and unrelated cancers, including one that took her left eye. Though in chemo treatments, she sings with Voices of Hope. "Singing, and music in general, has always had a very positive effect on me. Singing makes me feel wonderful, it energizes me," she said. "When I leave practice on Saturdays, it just seems like my day goes much better. There's less pain. I'm grateful for the opportunity to sing along with this group."
