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.

Dieren is among the group of women whose breast tissue is dense, so her mammography was unable to help doctors detect this lump. After several tests, she received life-changing news: Stage 1 cancer. 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.
