Lisa MaxonLisa Kendall Maxson is a young mother to 3 beautiful children and wife to Tom and daughter to Tom and Bev Kendall.  On August 1, 2011 Lisa was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She started treatment at the James Cancer Center in Columbus, after chemo, radiation Lisa was able to have a Double CordStem Cell Transplant on December 15th, 2011. The road to recovery has been a rough one for Lisa, she has been in and out of the hospital since her transplant with health issues all from the effects of Chemo and Radiation. Lisa still finds time to help in her community, cheer on her children at their various activities and be with her family. Lisa does not want to just focus on cancer but raise awareness on how we can help others by being a donor.  Be the Match is an on-line registry that helps match donors to cancer patients.
