A Connecticut Author Beats Brain Cancer

022

Inspiring? Lisa Reisman, a freelance writer, is beyond that. At age 32 she was told she had stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer. The athlete in her family, she set out to beat it and she did, one hurdle at a time. Reisman was diagnosed the week before she was set to leave her stressful job at a New York City law firm. She had plans to go on a trip across the country to find a different job, a career that would suit her. She had not planned to be thrown into warrior mode to fight for her life. Seventeen years later she is cancer free. She wrote her story, her memoir, in a book called “5 Months, 10 years, 2 Hours.”
