A Profile of Lisa Boccard and the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund Broward Health Coral Springs
At the age of just 29, Lisa Boccard was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. After enduring a mastectomy, chemotherapy, stem cell replacement, and radiation treatment, Lisa successfully defeated the disease and, after ten years, was declared “cancer free.” That’s why it came as a shock to her when, in 2003, 11 years from her original diagnosis, Lisa was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer – and given five years to live. But, from the beginning of Lisa’s journey with breast cancer, she made the decision to fight the disease and make a difference. Along with her brother Vince and his wife Terry, they established the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund at Broward Health Coral Springs and have raised more than $731,000 to help provide screening mammograms and breast cancer treatment to financially needy patients. Several fundraising events take place throughout the community to raise money for the fund, including the popular Race for Women’s Wellness 5K and Half Marathon that brings together more than 2,000 people to help patients fighting breast cancer.
Sadly, in June 2019, after fighting cancer for almost 30 years, Lisa succumbed to this horrible disease.
She was an inspiration to thousands of men and women in our community
and while she will be sorely missed, her legacy will continue.
