Originally diagnosed with Stage II invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast in December, 2006, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in October of 2012. There is no cure. Treatments are what I depend on to stay alive.
I've been writing about my experience living with cancer on my website http://www.lisabadams.com and I document my daily experiences via Twitter at @adamslisa.
I am a mother of three children (14, 11, and 7), a loving wife, daughter, sister, friend.
Now that I have metastases to my bones and lymph nodes I want to funnel some research money to MSKCC. I have been receiving care there throughout this time period. Metastatic cancer needs more funding than ever before.
Please join me in supporting the work MSKCC does every day to help those of us living with cancer.
I'd like to make a special public note of thanks to my MSKCC oncologist, Dr. Chau Dang. To read about our relationship, please go here: http://bit.ly/W88zru
She is a caring combination of researcher and health care provider. I hope this money will help her and her colleagues do even more to find better treatments for us and give us what we want most--- time.
