sd-1524611777-zxv755at0u-snap-image-1Borne out of personal connections to homelessness, White Sands la Jolla resident Lois Ream and activities director Pat Guerrero have visited the Mission Bay weekly to hand out protein-rich food such as hard-boiled eggs and string cheese.

They’re now known as “the egg and cheese ladies.” Their story was originally featured in the newspaper in April 2018.

But Anderson, a breast cancer survivor, knits with a purpose creating lightweight breast-shaped bra inserts for women who’ve undergone a mastectomy as the result of breast cancer. Her story was originally featured in the newspaper in September 2018.
