TASTE FOR A CURE
Strength is not measured in numbers nor is there one single definition. Some can lift hundreds of pounds, some put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve, and then there are those battling Leukemia. Along with chemotherapy, radiation, countless doctors and hospital visits are battles that no one sees. The struggles patients and their families endure to pay for costly medical treatments, whether it be due to lack of insurance, loss of a job due to enduring Leukemia or taking care of a loved one suffering. These are the battles Soulmates Wines sees; this subject is near and dear to the heart of our Creator Aggie Bonpua-Alba.
Aggie’s late brother Louie Bonpua, lost his battle to leukemia. While enduring countless treatments and hurtles, Louie still gathered the strength to finish triathlons and run as part of The Leukemia and Lymphoma society TNT (Team in Training). Prior to Louie’s passing, Louie made a request to Aggie, he requested she support The LLS and those suffering from Leukemia. Since then she has fulfilled his legacy and created Soulmates Wines in his honor; every purchase a portion of sales goes directly to The LLS. Aggie has ran as a member of TNT and has donated countless amounts through fundraising. Now she turns to a new direction and wants to aid a patient who is fighting a silent battle to pay for treatments and everyday life.
