Why we started this program…
In October 2014, one of our guests, Lisa, reached out to me personally. She had an ultra rare cancer called adrenal cortex carcinoma and saw we were raising money for breast cancer awareness. She brought up a great point, that type of cancer has a lot of support, yet what about these rare types of cancers?
I agreed 110% and that was the immediate birth of our TLC for the Big C program. A way that Eco Chateau can give back to the local community and have a direct impact.
Lisa was our first person in our program back then and we continue to offer this amazing program in her honor. In May of 2017, Lisa lost her battle with cancer, but she far outlived any timeline that the doctors gave her! She was always such a fighter and we loved having her as a member. Her positive attitude is such an inspiration.
Below is her story…
“I use Eco chateau with my oncology treatment plan! I am a single mother of two young boys who has been recently diagnosed with adrenal cortex carcinoma- stage IV metastasized to lungs.”
Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare tumor afflicting only one or two persons per one million population. Because adrenal cancer is rare, few doctors have experience treating it.
Adrenal cancer is an aggressive cancer. The only known cure is complete surgical removal of the cancer. In many cases, patients come to their doctor after the cancer has spread to other organs in the body, or the cancer has spread to places that cannot be removed, and the cancer is considered inoperable- Lisa was given that exact diagnosis.
The most common chemotherapy used to treat adrenocortical cancer is Mitotane. Stage IV cancer’s overall survival rate is 10% Prognosis.
Because of her strong will, determination and fighting spirit, she has convinced the doctors to do the surgery and give her chemo.
