Lisa B.

Lisa, who is 48, has stage 4 breast cancer and reflects on a “life lived fully and with joy.” Among her most sustaining memories is that of the birth of her daughter. “We were told she had a five percent chance of life, just four hours before she was born with dwarfism, and when she came out healthy and pink, it was the most joyous moment.”

Lisa regards her defining personality trait as “esprit de corps. My cancer journey has made me aware that I live life fully and with the most amazing village of friends, who walk this journey with me.”
