The Southeastern Louisiana University Controller’s Office staff is rallying around one of their own who is fighting breast cancer for the second time.
Assistant Controller Tara Hudgins said the Controller’s Office decided to rally around and support Accounting Specialist II Sondra Sagnibene as she began her treatment almost 10 years to the day after she was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time. The office surprised Sagnibene prior to her second chemotherapy treatment by wearing matching t-shirts to work and presenting her one as well. Sagnibene will receive treatment on Fridays going forward, so the office staff will wear the shirts that day to stand in solidarity with her. The back of the shirt reads, ‘No one fights alone,’ and their hope is that by wearing the shirts, Sagnibene knows that is truly the case.
