I heard from her husband over the weekend that Monica lost her battle with CRC July 17th.

For those of you that didn't have the priviledge to know her, she was an amazing fighter. A Canadian that followed her countries health care plans until she needed to find others. She came to the US and got support here but when she felt she needed more, she went to Argentina for surgeries the US nor Canada would do. She worked very hard to live as long as she could.

Monica had an amazing spirit and I will never forget her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family including husband Joe and 3 year old son Nicholas.

Monica Emilia Scorza
September 11, 1967 to July 17, 2009

Beloved wife of Joseph Plutino and adored mother of Nicholas. Precious daughter and very best friend of Ida Tagliaferri (husband Ezio). Precious daughter of Santo Scorza (wife Mirta). Loved sister to Sergio and Luca, Roseanna, Lucia, Luisa, Brad and Rob. Pre-deceased and re-united with her much loved brother Marco. Loved daughter-in-law of Dora and Nick Plutino. Loving aunt to Alex, Isabella, Matthew, Mackenzie, Michaela, Quintin and David. Monica will be missed by her many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Following a courageous battle against colorectal cancer, Monica leaves us with the dignity and honour that she lived her life. Monica will be remembered for her remarkable ability to enhance our lives. We will never be less for knowing her and will aspire always to be as pure and loving. She is our precious Angel watching over us and her presence will be forever missed. Family and friends will be received at Ward Funeral Home Woodbridge Chapel, 4671 Hwy 7 (just west of Pine Valley Drive) 905-851-9100 on Sunday from 2-4pm and 7-9pm and on Monday from 7-9pm. Funeral service will be held in the Funeral Home Chapel on Tuesday, July 21st at 11am. Entombment at a later date will be at Queen of Heaven Cemetery (Padre Pio Chapel). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Monica Scorza Trust Fund for Nicholas’ education or to offset medical expenses are in care of Bank of Montreal account # 3297 8004-361.

This is very sad news, I just read her page again checking for updates by her. I check pages of Stage 4 members when I can. She was a fighter,and now an angel. My thoughts are with her family. Audrey.

I think you should stop feeding those boys fertilizer!!!! It warms my heart to see how far you/we have come. We're all fighters and those angels will always sit on our shoulders and help us fight.

BTW, you look great girlfriend!!!

She is the first one that I actually knew that has passed, I am so sad. Like losing a friend. She was always so positive and upbeat and a fighter. My prayers go out to her family, at least she is no longer in pain and is in a much better place.

God Bless Her

Monica was a beautiful woman. She was on a few times after we joined and she was always lovely and encouraging. What a beautiful mom, wife and lady. Sad loss. I will say a prayer for her family.

She had posted a time or two right after I was dx'd and I remember reading her story. I'm so sorry to hear she's lost her fight. She really gave it her all. Praying her little boy will remember her. Such a precious age....
