SACRAMENTO -- Imagine this, you're 25 years old, you just finished college and are starting your new career. Then the unthinkable happens -- you find a lump and learn it's breast cancer. That's exactly what happened to one Sacramento woman. May Villa wasn't expecting a cancer diagnosis back in March; after all, she's only 25 years old. It's not a problem most women her age have to face. "I didn't even have any idea this was happening," Villa said. "No ... no symptoms. Nothing like that."
It’s been a little more than two months since Clayton Reust lost his mom, Karri Grant, to breast cancer. She had faced the disease for nearly half his life, first diagnosed in 2009. But Clayton says, she remained optimistic even until the end. “She never really liked to show people how sick she was. She always wanted to show people that she was staying positive, to keep everyone else’s hopes up,” said Clayton. Karri always put the people she loved first, especially Clayton and his sister Mikayla.
Snack time at the Ruano household is a team effort. Diego and Sofia, along with their mom Sarah Ruano, enjoy making popcorn, smoothies, and even getting in some coloring time. It’s a sweet routine Sarah looks forward to every day, especially after the year she’s been through. “You basically feel like you’re dying for a couple of days,” Sarah told FOX40. “Just extreme nausea, body aches. Yeah, it was horrible.”The working mother of two was only 35 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
