Celebrating Women’s History Month…Edna Lugo!



Our Celebration of Women’s History Month continues! #SurpriseTheStruggling’s twelfth highlight this month is the rock-star and champion survivor Edna Lugo— #SurpriseTheStruggling’s go to mixologist and inspirational reminder of what thriving while surviving looks like. There are so many reasons to celebrate Edna. At the top of the list; her strength and determination. From the very first moment we met this dynamic woman of courage, we have been inspired and reminded of how precious life is and how we must always take each day as the gift that it is while making every moment of life worth something remembering.

Edna Lugo CocktailVixens Mobile Bartending Company

In such a small package reside so much strength, power, and courage. Edna wholeheartedly embodies the mission of #STSGlobal by living her life and making every moment count. Her passion for life and pushing forward through obstacles has inspired us to keep pushing past every hurdle that may come our way. Only Enda can truly tell her story and give you an accurate glimpse into her life. However, as we have gotten to know Edna and all that she stands for and the passion and strength that she exudes—it did not surprise us that Edna is a cervical cancer survivor. There is no way a woman with so much love, passion, and determination would ever allow a beast like cancer, to win. She kicked it in its rear end and is living her life on her terms; making a difference in other people’s lives while living her passion and dreams and servicing others. Her talents, her creativity, her gifts, and her passion, inspires us each day to live our best life now.
