Survivor Story: Lisa Moore

When did you become involved in Komen Greater Fort Worth?

I moved here in 1998 and got diagnosed with breast cancer for the 2nd time in 1999. I participated in my first Race in 2000. Prior to moving here I had participated in 3 Races for Komen in South Carolina.

Why did you become involved in Komen Greater Fort Worth?

I wanted to be involved with Komen because they were making a big impact in the community and helping to save lives of women just like me who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They have helped us with screening and treatment to fight cancer.

What keeps you involved in Komen Greater Fort Worth?

Because I am a three-time breast cancer survivor, I am very passionate about helping Komen to advocate for breast cancer awareness. We have to tell our survival stories to help others when they are faced with the Big “C”.  We have to share hope and our faith with other survivors and let them know: you got this! My famous phrase, “You got cancer but cancer doesn’t have you.”

What is your favorite volunteer task that you do for Komen Greater Fort Worth?

I love working registration to meet all the survivors and congratulate them with encouraging words and a hug. I would love to do more speaking engagements to share my story. I would also like to work the Survivor’s Tent at the upcoming Race and really interact and service the needs of all our beautiful survivors on that special day.

What would you like to see Komen Greater Fort Worth do in the future?

Possibly incorporate more social events for survivors to meet up and fellowship throughout the year.
