A Note From Liza…

Hi Friends!

I’m Liza.

After a super scary cancer diagnosis at 30, I knew I wanted to leave something behind for my daughter. She was only a year old at the time. And yeah, literally behind—the prognosis for my kind of cancer sucks.

After several surgeries and rounds of topical chemotherapy, things are looking (literally, it’s an ocular cancer) much better. While this is something I will live with—and be treated for—the rest of my life, I am grateful for the fire it lit under me

Being a writer was a dream, but it was a combination of cancer and motherhood that made me chase it.

Thank you for letting me share my stories and for being a part of mine.
