Marya H. Cardoza

It is with deepest regrets that I must announce the passing of my beloved wife Marya. Marya fought a determined and courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer over the past two years.
I would like to thank Dr. Juric of Massachusetts General Hospital for guiding her through her experimental clinical trials that I’m sure added much time to her life. Marya made medical history by responding well to a new drug for a period of time. Her study was presented by Dr. Juric in Chicago before top research doctors from around the world.
Marya succumbed to her disease last week while watching the final game of the world series. Her sister Karen and I were at her bedside until her passing.
Her funeral service will be held at Rehoboth Congregational Church, Bay State Road on Saturday November 9th. The formal service will start at 10:30 am with brief calling hour starting at 9:45.
