Liz is a 36 year old wife and mother. She has been married to Evan for 10 years and has a beautiful 4 year old son, Will. She received her PhD in 2010 and moved to Waco to pursue her professional dream as college faculty at Baylor University.

Liz was in the seventh month of her pregnancy when she first noted a breast lump which her doctor attributed to pregnancy changes. Valentine’s Day of 2012 was her happiest day when Will was born. Seven months later her life was shattered with the diagnosis of Stage 4 breast cancer, with metastatic lesions in her liver and lungs. She has faced bilateral mastectomies(10/10/12), three different chemotherapy regimens and multiple medical procedures with courage and conviction. She has had 7 metastatic lesions in her brain and has undergone stereotactic (gamma knife) brain surgery twice.

Liz’s wish was to take her son to Disney World and to make memories there with her family. They went to Disney in June of 2016.
