Iowa Woman Shares Her Cancer Story

Just a few weeks after her 40th birthday party, Rock Rapids, Iowa native Lisa Dieren’s busy life changed forever: she found a lump in her breast.

Lisa and her husband decided to visit the Avera Cancer Institute Second-Opinion Clinic. Watch this video to learn more about how her decision helped her to live in the present.
