From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.
Shortly after Thanksgiving, Lisa noticed a lump in her right breast. It was big, completely foreign, and because of its odd “edges,” Lisa referred to it as shaped like a Lego. She immediately made an appointment with her doctor. After a long waiting period through the holidays, that nerve-wracking appointment on January 18, 2019, finally arrived. The doctor did find a lump about an inch and a half thick, and that very next Monday, she went in for a biopsy. By the end of that week, it was confirmed. Invasive ductal carcinoma. In two short months, she was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer at the age of 29. With so many things to look forward to, everything came to a halt.
Lisa has always been strong willed and independent. She is so proud of her accomplishments (as are her family and friends) and has done them mostly on her own. When it came to beating a disease that she didn’t ask for, she didn’t think twice. Once again, she would do this on her own. When faced with a challenge, Lisa wouldn’t think to bother those around her, even if she rightly deserves the help. But now, she needs all the support she can get. Friends and family have been in Lisa’s corner since she first found a sign, but now is a time when we’re asking others to offer help so that she does not carry the burden alone.
The reality of how expensive this journey is going to be has set in, and with the help of her closest friends and family, we are inviting you to offer any support that you can because every little bit helps.
We hope September is a safe and productive changing of seasons for you! As you make your way throughout the month, we encourage you to remember to be kind.
"Kindness: One of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need, lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return."
