Being diagnosed with cancer is never a good thing.
When Lisa Boccard was diagnosed with cancer, she decided to take a terrible and negative situation and help other people who were going through a similar situation. She and members of her family founded the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund. It is an organization dedicated to helping women who are facing cancer.
"I am a cancer survivor and I want to help women who are fighting breast cancer," said Lisa Boccard.
The Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund, based in Coral Springs raises money to provide free mammograms to women who are facing financial difficulties. The Fund has made it possible for women to receive mammograms. Most of the women tested did not have breast cancer but the few who did received treatment and survived.
The Lisa Breast Cancer Fund raises money by holding a 5K run and a 13.1 mile half marathon. It holds other fund raising events during the year as well.
Lisa Boccard is an example of woman who took a negative situation and turned it into an opportunity to help others. She has been very successful in her efforts.
