Marilia Andrade, 67, lives alone at The Village Green, a seniors only gated community in Gilroy. Past the gate, the grass surrounding her apartment is green and well manicured.

It's been a busy year for her. For three months she received chemotherapy to treat her pancreatic cancer and losing part of her freedom has been a difficult transition.
