Lorena Lanza Gets Community Support Fighting for Her Life Back by Sal Giarratani Many folks in the North End know Lorena Lanza who has been waitressing at the original Regina Pizzeria in Boston's North End. She has been there 20 years and hopes to con- tinue to serve up those great pizzas for many more years to come. Whether you live in the North End near the place, she is known to folks from East Boston, Revere and beyond after her years of service to so many patrons. She has always been there to lend a hand, hold a hand, offer a shoul- der to cry on or for prayers. A few months back she was diagnosed with breast can- cer and is in treatment. Her progress is looking good and she sees herself as a survivor and not a passive victim, but Lorena needs everyone's help now. The North End is a tight knit community and folks are coming together to help her. Come on down to Regina Pizzeria for a special fundraiser on Tuesday, August 6 th at 7:00 pm sharp. Great pizzas and fun. Donations are only $20. I will be there and hope to see .yg_,_lt_l,.t,o, oc_,ifg, i S,tQ.-be.hared. S.hare ome of yours for Lorena at Regina's on August 6 m.
