John and Lisa Vann

First post: Mar 23, 2018 Latest post: Apr 4, 2018
Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement on our journey. On February 8, 2017 John was diagnosed with Stage IV Liver Cancer that spread to his lymph nodes. He continues to receive chemotherapy through Wausau Cancer Center with Dr. Rezazadeh.  We have four adult children and feel surrounded with  love, prayers, and support. On September 21, 2017 Lisa had surgery for Basal Cell Nevoid Carcinoma Syndrome mandating multiple surgeries and skin grafts preventing her from activities of daily living and working as a teacher. She is currently on long-term disability from her teaching job at Adams-Friendship and John is an employee at Sentry insurance while fighting his disease with chemotherapy and a whole food plant-based vegan diet. We are using this website to update people on our journey to maintain energy without having to repeat updates to multiple people. Thank you for your love and support moving forward.
