Relay for Life: Lynchburg mom talks about fighting cancer

Imagine having to juggle kids activities, work, a successful marriage and doing it all while having cancer. 

One local Lynchburg woman does it all and says it's what make her journey through life so unique.

"Every day you think about it. But you have top keep fighting. I have family, I have kids. I want to see them grow up," said Lisel Browe, Cancer fighter.

Imagine having your whole world change from three simple words - "you have cancer."

For Lisel Browe, this would be a reality, but unfortunate it was not the first time she would know the affects a cancer diagnosis would have.

"Mom died of cancer when I was twenty one so for me to get it, it was really shocking," said Browe.

She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2011 and has had to battle different types of it ever since.

She still battles it today, but says she has a great support system, including her family, friends, and employer, who made this shirt to show their support.

"I am very fortunate with my job, I can work from home a lot, my company is very supportive," said Browe.

She also leans on a new community called Hope Group.

They are people dealing with cancer in different ways but all help each other to get through.

"We bring food to each other's houses. When I am going through chemo, they are calling me, they're coming over," said Browe.

Lisel says having a support system is key when going through the battle of your life...and gives you hope for a better tomorrow. 

"The biggest thing is, is to find support, it is out there whether you go to the cancer society, whether you go to your oncologist, where ever you are getting you chemo, or your doctor, your church group, your friends, family, find support and find positive support," said Browe. 

Lisel will be one of the speakers at the Lynchburg Relay for Life.
