WINDSOR, Colo. – A 27-year-old cancer survivor has opened a medical supply business here called I Love Lucy’s Home Medical Supply and Equipment. Lucia Sodre told the Greeley Tribune she hopes her medical supply store will help others experiencing life-altering health issues, with a focus on offering education and options. "Just because you're going through an illness or a difficulty in your life and you have certain limitations doesn't mean that you don't want to be normal, that you don't want to look good," she told the newspaper. "And it doesn't mean that you're done living." After being diagnosed with cancer and having a lump removed from her throat, Sodre used a machine at home to keep her throat clear and a cane to help her walk.
