5th Generation Cancer Book Released by Comedian Lisa Marie
By: Lisa Marie Wilson, Traveling Daisy
Lisa Marie offers tips and advice on how to deal with your own cancer or someone else’s cancer, as she is the fifth generation of her family to be diagnosed with the disease. Her great-great grandma had breast, her great-grandpa had colon, her grandma had breast, her mom had melanoma and she had thyroid. She tells her journey of how she dealt with both terminal and treatable cancer diagnoses, as she took care of her mother while she died from melanoma, just a year before she, herself, was diagnosed.
This isn’t the first time she has looked at her family tree to find answers. She produced a documentary about her brother called, “My Careless Brother’s Vasectomy,” where she promotes vasectomies to men who abandon their children. In her latest attempt to put the fun back in dysfunctional, she writes her very real, funny and honest travels through life and cancer all with a smile and a laugh. She honestly believes that to get through the cancer times, that laughter is better than a xanax.
Lisa Marie was born in Michigan to an Elvis impersonator and a nurse, but currently resides in Los Angeles. She writes and produces a variety of entertainment for both TV and the Internet including comedy web series, VideoBreakups.com and BFFENT.com. As an actress she has appeared on Ten Things I Hate About You as well as many independent features and national commercials. Lisa Marie owns the hat store www.CelebrityHats.com, which has received national press including Page Six, InStyle, and Fox 11. She writes for the Huffington Post and just starred the TV Pilot, “Over the Hill” with Robert Wagner and Tim Conway.
