Shugah Pauline Gonzales was a sweet, outgoing, and fun-loving travel blogger who always gave the best travel tips, quirks, and stunning photos in her blog Wandershugah. For everyone dear to her, she always gave the best laugh, food trip, and spontaneous fun and travel. For her, life was a big playground and she always faced the world with light and love.
Last August, she was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer after experiencing severe abdominal, pelvic, and back pain, and very heavy irregular bleeding. Four months later, on December 03, she passed away at the age of 23.
There will be a fundraising gig for Shugah, curated by blogger and former Itchyworms social media manager Christian Melanie Lee, tonight, December 14, 8 pm at Route 196, Katipunan, Quezon City.
