Luisa's 2nd Marathon!

Name: Luisa Lyons
Event: TCS New York City Marathon
Date: November 4, 2018




Hi! Thank you for visiting my page! 

My name is Luisa, and I am an actor, writer, and leukemia survivor.

I was a non-smoking, barely drinking, vegetarian who exercised and meditated when I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia six weeks before my 30th birthday. AML is a disease that more commonly affects men in their 60s, and the survival rate beyond 5 years is about 25%. 

After diagnosis, I underwent 2 rounds of chemo, and several rounds of full body radiation. I then received a life-saving stem transplant at MSKCC.

The treatment was incredibly debilitating, and it took me over 2 years to get back to "normal." For much of that time, I couldn't work, sing, go to theatre, or do a lot of the things that made me happy. 

This year, on the 4th anniversary of my transplant, I'm running my 2nd marathon.

Help me say thank you to my amazing MSKCC team by raising funds so that they may continue to advance their research and work in creating a world without cancer.
