START HERE - Welcome to John 's PostHope Site

Welcome to the Lisa support family! This site is for family and friends, old and new, to organize our efforts to support this extraordinary person. This page will serve as your home base for rallying the troops, receiving updates to support Lisa. Here's the plan:

Your First Step: Please take 30 seconds to click on the "Follow" button on the top right of this page. This will allow you to receive updates, read journal entries, make donations, share Lisa’s story on social media, and help the family with week-to-week calendaring needs. Though not mandatory to follow Lisa’s page, we encourage you to easily create an account with your name and email in order to be able to post photos, leave comments and sign up as a helping hand on the Calendar page. Feel free to upload a photo of yourself to your profile so we can get to know and recognize others on Lisa’s support team. After clicking “Follow” above, read on to learn more about what you can do to help.

Journal: This tab is where you can read the latest entries posted for Lisa and our support team. You may see additional authors writing updates here to help alleviate pressure for Lisa and expedite information sharing. Each post is followed by a photo and name of the author of the entry. You can reply with supportive comments to any journal entry, or click on the name of its author to send a private message.

Posts: This is where you can leave an encouraging message for Lisa and family, and to read thoughts left by others! If you have something pressing you'd like suggest that everyone sees (e.g. a fundraiser or upcoming event you're spearheading), please don't hesitate to contact us via private message so we can consider sharing it more widely in the Journal sections. There will undoubtedly be many coordinated efforts and events ahead, and we want to make certain they’re organized and publicized through this site to help drive the greatest possible impact.

Calendar: Please see this important section to learn what the family needs NOW. This will be an especially helpful section for locals in close proximity to Lisa. This is an up-to-date calendar which will list the family's immediate needs such as child-care, rides, and meals to help most in the short term. If you see a need posted and can fill it, please sign up through the calendar page directly (i.e. not through private communication) to let us and others know that you've committed to that need. Please check back often to help out with the most recently posted needs!

Notifications: After clicking “Follow” above, you’ll then see a tab to manage “Notifications”. If you feel you’re receiving too many or too few email notifications, please check this section to tailor notifications to your areas of interest. For example, if you want to receive journal updates but not new calendar posts, or any combination of notifications from this site, you can do set them to your preference this section.

Don’t Forget! If you haven’t done so already, please click “Follow” on the top right. It’s your very next step to showing your support!

    Good morning, Yesterday I spoke with Dr Eric Arts (my good friend) from London Ont. I reviewed everything that we have been through over the last week. I can't believe it only been less than a week it seems like we have been in this story for months because of so much going on. Dr. Arts made me feel confident that so far we are on the right track. Remember in four days we had a an xray, 2 ultrasounds , 2 CAT scans, 2 scopes and MRI to help us get to were we are today. I think that is fantastic. Dr. Arts was encouraged by what I told him and that we follow Dr Buac's lead. She is doing the right things. We need to wait for the biopsy to tell us what we are dealing with. Dr. Arts promised me that when all the tests come back he will share everything with one of his friends, the head of Oncology in London. At that time Dr Buac and Dr Arts London will review everything. I promise everyone that loves Lisa I will ask everyone to help us. I am doing everything I can to have the best solutions using the smartest people. Dr Arts also recommended that we test Lisa for a specific test that looks at people that only 15% of people might have this certain type of cancer. If Lisa falls in this category the treatment would be different. They might not test for this but now that I know I will push for this. Remember everyone Dr Atrs is on our team now too, so he will help facilitate and coach us to do the right things. One the reasons I use this forum is that I can reach out to all of you and it keeps me from repeating all this talk from Lisa. It seems to be working to keep the atmosphere at our house good. If anyone wants any more information please speak to me. I am trying to put everything we do on this site. So everyone knows as much as we do. Have a great Saturday John
