We don’t know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have. Words that resonate with all of us right now, and everyone here at Chateau La Jolla. Marlene Ministeri a resident here who is in the middle of receiving aggressive chemo for breast cancer is doing her part by practicing social distancing.

“The dining room just delivered to me my own quart of sherbet, the only dessert that my digestive system can tolerate. And I couldn’t even hug anybody!”

Instead of worrying about her own situation, she fights another fight because we are all in this together. In a time when we can all use some inspiration, Marlene is a good example of how a positive mind-set can conquer anything. Thank you for being such a ray of light in our lives, we are all in this together.
