Biography

Came with her 2 children and mother to the United States from Cuba in 1960 shortly after Fidel Castro's takeover of the island country.

All of her family's inheritance---Farms,apartment buildings, export business--were taken over by the Castro Regime.

Her husband, Frank, was a OB/Gyn MD, with a thriving practice in Cuba which he chose to leave behind in order to safeguard his family from the Communist regime of Fidel Castro, which involved separating children from their parents for indoctrination purposes. He came to the United States 6 months after his family....right after the failure of the Bay of Pugs invasion.
