Lisa's journey with cancer began in October of 2020 when her mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Lisa and Chris welcomed her mother into their home to care for her as she began chemo treatment. Due to some unexpected weight loss, Lisa found a pea size nodule on her upper rib which led her to schedule a mammogram for herself.

On February 16th 2021, Lisa was diagnosed with cancer, Invasive ductal carcinoma (triple negative, stage 1). On March 19th, a day after her birthday, she will begin her first chemo treatment. Her program will be for 18 weeks with chemo treatments every 3 weeks. Post-Chemo she is scheduled for a double mastectomy and a possible hysterectomy. Her ultimate hope is to walk away in remission and continue this journey with a whole and healthy mind, body and spirit.
