Alhambra City Councilwoman Adele Andrade-Stadler asks for support as she undergoes cancer treatment and works from home.
By Kate Bartlett
Andrade-Stadler has had surgery and will be undergoing chemotherapy for a few months. Having been diagnosed with Her2positive breast cancer, Andrade-Stadler must have chemotherapy to slow the aggressive protein that signals the cancer cells to grow.
In an open letter to her friends and constituents, Adele described this process, and stated that she will be immunocompromised. In the letter she says, “In my role as elected official, I plan to continue my work on the Alhambra City Council virtually and I hope to continue to represent the great people of Alhambra.”
Andrade-Stadler welcomes encouragement and communication from everyone. She plans to chronicle her journey to help herself and others understand the disease and the challenges of treatment. In the letter she also asks that people call on the U.S. Congress to allocate more money to cancer research, and she asks that trust and resources be placed in the scientists who have advanced the chances of breast cancer survival.
