Who are we?


"We" are Lisa’s family, friends, neighbors, community, and perfect strangers.


Throughout Lisa’s diagnosis, treatment, remission and relapse we have been blessed with a support network that has been made up of family, friends, neighbors, and care providers whose support and generosity has been the impetus of our desire to somehow give back, repay or maybe just do something… anything. 


We continue to go to University of Michigan Health System/C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital for blood tests, surgeries, infusion treatments, CT scans, MRI, radiation treatments, bone marrow biopsies, trial studies and anything that is available that helps us hang on to Lisa for as long as we can. But, it still feels like we’re waiting, waiting for the inevitable; and that’s not good enough. That’s not who we are. We want to do something, we need to fight!


So we asked ourselves, how can we fight? What weapons do we have? We have:
  • The University of Michigan Health System/C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital…one of the best Neuroblastoma research hospitals in the country.  
  • A medical team that is pioneering treatments and studies against Neuroblastoma.  
  • A support network that is appalled at the prospect that Neuroblastoma, a disease none of has heard of before Lisa was diagnosed,  is attempting to claim one of our own, one that we fought so hard to get in the first place. 
  • A substantial network of contacts through family and friends that all have something to add to the fight.
It is in coordinating all these elements that we intend to fight back; collectively we have the means to make a difference.  Our goal is to raise funds that can be donated to organizations who provide support and services to patients and their families in their fight against neuroblastoma, provide research, treatments, and an eventual cure for neuroblastoma and other childhood cancers.

BLAST Childhood Cancer….that’s precisely what we intend to do.
