Lisa's Story - 

In July 2023, Lisa, a vibrant 56 year old, came together with her friends to celebrate Canada Day, and to do what she loved to do most… playing golf. Five days later, Lisa lay in a coma, with a diagnosis of a rare form of leukemia with resulting brain bleed and several strokes. The doctor’s prognosis was not good. Lisa’s family and friends gathered around her, believing that they may have to say goodbye. Despite many setbacks, Lisa over several weeks showed us she was working to return to us. Lisa was started on chemotherapy, among other medical treatments and procedures, each carrying its own risks. The strokes affected her rights side, her speech, vision and mobility. Lisa required months to regain some of her basic life skills. She has
progressed dramatically and will continue to progress with time. It will take patience, courage, resilience and will power. Lisa is our MIRACLE.

Lisa received amazing care from The Hamilton General Hospital, Juravinski Cancer Centre ICU, Grand River Cancer division, and Freeport Hospital. She along with her family and friends would like to deeply thank all of the doctors, nurses and support staff who gave their time, skills and knowledge in treating Lisa in a caring and compassionate manner. We are raising funds by doing what Lisa has a passion for…golf. This will then be used to help fund the treatment of other cancer victims and together with Lisa’s story, give others who are battling cancer the one thing they seek most…HOPE.

“We make a living by what me make.  We make all life by what we give.”
