Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Lisa was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer affecting around 4,000 known cases worldwide. The statistics say if the cancer returns after the initial diagnosis, she would have a 50% survival rate; then if it returns again- 15%, so on.
Here are her physical facts:
- She was originally diagnosed on February 25, 2008. It was found in her uterus after a hysterectomy. - In August 2009, the cancer was found in her lung - In October 2010, in her back and right arm
- In April 2012 in her lungs again - In July 2012, in her right arm again - In December 2012, right arm again, thus the amputation - In October 2013 it was found in her lungs and back - In July 2014, an additional spot in her stomach
She has had:
- 9 cancer-related surgeries - 63 rounds of infused chemotherapy - 6 months of daily pill form chemotherapy - An amputation of her right arm - 15 radiation treatments
In a testimony Lisa wrote several years ago she said: "These are just the physical facts, the statistics… but I know the God of the Universe,the Creator, and The Great Physician of the Bible. Although there is fear, pain beyond I can describe, God’s promises are still true. Although, my plan didn’t work out again, God’s truths did not change. His presence never left me, nor did God forsake me. God’s plan in my life allows HIM to shine brighter than I could ever on my own"
Lisa's cancer has returned and the doctor's are doing their best to contain it. They have said that surgery and radiation are not options at this time so they are giving her chemo in hope of containment. She has already received all of the chemo treatments related to her type of cancer. The cancer that is now on the left side of her chest cavity and lower back has spread.
We ask for your prayers for Lisa and for the family. We would love for you to leave her a message in the Guestbook area of this website.
