This is a support page for Lisa Siciliano and her husband Chuck as they go through their journey with breast cancer. Lisa, 39, was diagnosed with breast cancer on March 25th (while she was 38). She is currently a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Chicago at the Learning Sciences Research Institute. Treatment for Lisa's cancer (ER+, PR+, HER+) will include surgery, chemotherapy, antibody treatment, radiation, and hormone therapy. Whew. We hope this page gives you a way to get updates and provides many ways you can help. This is going to be a long journey, so we hope you are willing to join us and support us for the ride.
