Lisa was diagnosed with Stage 4 B cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in April 2013.  She lost her ability to walk due to a tumor on her spinal cord but regained mobility after a month of radiation, 3 5-day chemotherapy cycles and 3 one-day treatments.  Soon, Lisa will begin another, more aggressive form of chemo which requires several days in the hospital to be followed with a bone marrow transplant. Please read the following "About Me" from her website www.kindergartencrush17.com.

"Ten years ago, my first husband James was diagnosed with brain cancer and died one month later. Our daughters were 3 years and 10 months old. This experience flipped my life upside down but I used it to my advantage and learned to live life with little to no stress, to be positive and best of all, to be the best mother to my girls.

In April of 2011, I began to date a friend from elementary school who I reconnected with thanks to Facebook. I first met Fred in kindergarten and lost touch with him after he moved away in the fourth grade. Four months after we started dating, we were married. Crazy, right? All I can say is that I've been very lucky in love:twice.

My journey through grief led me to discover a love of running, a new me and a new life with my daughters, my darling new husband and our three toddlers (2 cats and 1 dog). In 2012, I set a fitness goal to run 720 miles and completed the goal- 6 weeks early.  I planned to keep running, however, a lovely bout of viral bronchitis kept me from running further. Bronchitis it was not, NHL, it was. :(

I encourage my readers and anyone who will listen to embrace life, leave behind the little negativities and to find your fitness. Life IS short but it can be AWESOME! So get out there and enjoy this crazy thing called life!" 

Your donation to assist with out of pocket medical expenses and ancillary expenses is GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Please remember to pray for Lisa and her family. May God Bless you!

Thank you so much for helping us! As these dollars come in, we are putting them to use for various purposes such as medications, medical equipment, and most recently, for oxygen tanks and an oxygen machine for the house.

Now that I am unemployed, we have also been grateful to use these funds to pay on bills and to replace a dead appliance.

We don't know what we would do without your support.
