Lisa Church

Lisa graduated from Sweet Briar Women’s College and had a successful career in marketing and advertising. She and her partner Elaine are both big-hearted dog lovers. Lisa identifies as a “planner,” but cancer has forced her to change the way she thinks about the future.

Elaine incorporates all of their friends into Lisa’s medical process by writing a weekly blog. They take advantage of Lisa’s “good days” by filling them with gold, bike rides, and other adventures. Lisa fights for positivity, but that doesn’t stop the feeling of being on a stage IV “checklist” as she watches her fellow group members face this terminal disease.
