Survivor Spotlight: Lisa Welling

Breast cancer survivor Lisa Welling celebrated her last Chemo treatment at Beebe Tunnell’s Cancer Center on October 23. She and her son just took a much deserved vacation to North Carolina to celebrate being cancer free!

Like hundreds of other women in Delaware who will be newly diagnosed this year, Lisa knows breast cancer isn’t easy. You don’t just bounce back. She was under the assumption that she’d have a double mastectomy and be back to work in a month. That was not the case. She was and still is in a lot of pain.

Now Lisa is ready to give back. Her advise to others, “ask for help”. There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to cancer. And a lot of other women have been through this experience before. Lisa wants women to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And as Lisa says, “life is good”. DBCC is proud to honor Lisa in the Survivor Spotlight!

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with breast cancer, the Delaware Breast Cancer Cancer can help. Call us at 302-778-1102 to speak to a peer mentor, get involved in a survivorship program, and learn how we can be a resource to you and your loved ones.
