This March 24, 2012 photo released by Jessica Aguirre shows Jessica Aguirre celebrating her 31st birthday with her sons, Giovanni Vazquez, 5, left, and Evelio Vazquez III, 6, in Key Largo, Fla. Aguirre, the mother of two young boys in Green Acres, Fla., was 29 when diagnosed with breast cancer nearly two years ago. Her bad news came just three days before she received a promotion to manager of the cell phone store where she is now on medical leave, after the cancer spread to her brain.
