In 2005, Lake Travis resident Elisa Graves was over-the-moon about her beautiful five-month-old daughter when she got the devastating news that she had breast cancer. It was Stage IIA Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer.
Elisa vividly remembers the sheer disbelief …
“I was in my 30’s, with my precious daughter, loving life more than ever because my dreams of being a mom had finally come true after the loss of three second trimester babies — our precious gift from God was more amazing than I could have ever imagined,” Elisa recalls.
“Aside from new mommy fatigue, I felt great!”
“There was no way I was sick. This has to be a mistake.”
As the reality of her cancer diagnosis slowly sunk in, within five days of receiving the news from her doctor Elisa began her treatment journey with her head held high.
