Sandra Yates-Thompson was one of the most brilliant, vibrant and kind women you would ever be fortunate enough to meet.
Shaka, a nickname given to her by her youngest daughter Robin, was a loving and caring wife to the man of her dreams. A mother of 5 very spoiled and enormously loved children. Our mommy was the best!!! A grandma that deeply adored her 8 granchildren and 9 great grands. They would come to the house and run straight to the room to get her special grandma hugs. Having a big family was the thing she wanted most in the world and handily achieved.
Sandra was also the consummate friend to her warrior sister friends and anyone that needed her even when she was at her sickest. She had a heart of gold. Very fitting considering how much she loved sparkle and bling and the Lakers!!!!
Integral to her journey was weSPARK! They helped her navigate the many ups and downs of this vicious disease and helped her find joy when there didn't seem to be any. Without their programs, insanely caring and loving staff this would not have happened. We are walking to give back and say thank you for all that they do.
Please help us thank them! Join our team or donate to help us make our goal! Come and walk with us!
With heartfelt appreciation,
