Mary Saucedo was giving an old neighborhood friend a ride home one afternoon last summer in Bell Gardens. They hadn't seen each other in years, and the woman inquired about Saucedo's three sons. I only have two now, Saucedo responded quietly. My youngest, Joseph, died of cancer two years ago. The woman was startled by the coincidence. I just lost my nephew to cancer, she said. Didn't your son go to Suva Elementary School like my nephew?
