We want to thank you for taking the time to donate to Sophia Borek's Colon Cancer Alliance tribute page.
Every dollar that goes to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance helps us increase awareness of the importance of screening, provide the invaluable assistance of our Patient and Family Support Navigators, and inspire efforts to help fund critical research.
Together, we can help end Colectoral Cancer in our lifetime.
In addition, we'd like to share Sophia's amazing story with you.
Sophia began her first cleaning company as a college student in communist-controlled Poland. Sophia soon realized that in order to reach her full potential, she needed to immigrate to America.
As she waited for her immigration approval, Sophia taught herself five different languages and wrote for an underground anti-Soviet newspaper -all while running small cleaning service in Krakow.
In 1984, Sophia arrived in Chicago with hopes for a better life in America. She began cleaning homes to support her family and within a few months began hiring cleaners to work for her in order to spend more time at home with her newborn son, Andre.
Throughout the years, Sophia formed a special bond with many of her clients and workers alike. She once went out of her way to help the children of one of her longtime clients pay for and arrange funeral services after a tragic accident. She also helped teach English to many of the cleaners that worked for her and guided them and their families through their first years as American citizens.
In 2012, Sophia passed away from a year’s long fight with cancer at the age of 53. She will be greatly missed by both her family and the countless people she made an impact on while running Sophia’s Cleaning Service.
This cause means so much to us and any donation given to fight colon cancer is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
