Burglars steal everything from medicines to clothing from cancer patients

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – Kerria Dixon was first diagnosed with cancer in 2017. Her daughter Da’Kerria Richardson and her mother Gwendolyn Hixon keep her in the fight.

Dixon, 34, was recently hospitalized for more than three weeks and what should have been a happy homecoming on Monday has turned into a nightmare.

“She’s battling brain tumors in three places in her brain, and she’s had her double mastectomy, and she has fluid and a small cancer in her spine,” Hixon said through tears.

They were the victims of a burglary at a public housing complex in the area of ​​Southwest 127 Avenue and Mody Drive near Homestead Air Reserve Park in southeast Miami-Dade County.

“I smelled drugs and it smelled like cigarettes,” Hixon said.

When they went into the kitchen, they found a hole in the ceiling. Hixon said the thief breached the roof and attic to get inside. Her meds were gone. They also took jewelry, shoes, and clothes.


“They took all my needles, all my insulin. They took my painkillers. They took medicine for my nerves,” Dixon said.

Hixon, her caretaker, said she was worried Dixon was already unwell before the burglary.

“She was ready to give up the past week. She said she can’t keep going through this — and then this has to happen,” Hixon said.

They wanted to move out because the two-bedroom apartment has a wall-mounted air conditioner. They couldn’t afford to move and desperation increased with the burglary.

After all her belongings were gone, Dixon said she had a message for the burglars: “I forgive you. God forgives you. You will reap what you sow. It was materialistic, it hurts, but you can’t take my joy away.

“I struggle so much.”
