SoCal family mourns breast cancer death of 38-year-old mother of 4

A Southern California family is mourning the tragic breast cancer death of a 38-year-old mother of four including a 1-year-old baby.

Brianna Reomales died May 21 after a 10-month battle with triple-negative breast cancer, her aunt Sandra Sanchez said.

Reomales is survived by her husband Francis Reomales, twin 9-year-old boys, her 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son.

Funeral services were held June 8 in Glendora.

“(Reomales) fought so hard and endured painful procedures as she was determined to fight for her kids and never gave up,” Melinda Bustos wrote on a GoFundMe page created to help the Reomales family.

“Brianna was supported by her hard working husband Francis who worked a lot to provide for the needs of his family and provide them a good life,” Bustos wrote. “This sudden loss is extremely hard for all of them.

“The purpose of this GoFund me is to allow her husband Francis to take time off work and stay home with their 4 children as they heal and adjust to life without their mommy. The boys will be on summer break and starting the 4th grade in August, sweet Melania will be preparing for her first day of kindergarten, and baby Cali will enjoy having his daddy at home to help him develop into his toddler stage.”

Triple-negative breast cancer means cancer cells do not have estrogen or progesterone receptors and do not make any or too much of the protein “HER2,” causing the cells to test “negative” for the two hormones and the protein, according to the American Cancer Society. Triple-negative breast cancer tends to be more common in women younger than 40, who are Black or who have a BRCA1 gene mutation. TNBC grows and spreads faster than other invasive breast cancers, has fewer treatment options and tends to have a worse prognosis.
