LISA 5-JAN-2013. "love life ♥"
'Lisa was the kind of person you meet once in a lifetime, if you're really lucky. She was genuinely caring and interested in everyone's lives and problems. She just wanted to help as many people as she could and give comfort wherever it was needed. The last time I saw her, I burst into tears because she looked so frail. She held my hands, stroked my cheek and told me not to cry, that it was ok. THAT is the girl so many of us fell in love with. I only met Lisa in Feb '12 - but meeting her changed my life. I will never, ever forget her.'
- Kelly Kooper.

ADENOID CYSTIC CARCINOMA (ACC)
Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a rare form of cancer that accounts for 1 in every 500 new cases per year. ACC generally affects women (62%) more than men (38%) with the median age of those affected being 58 years, which is 10 years younger than that of the average cancer patient. The cause of ACC is not known. ACC is not associated with smoking or alcohol consumption as are some cancers of the lung and the oral cavity. The reasonable explanation is that ACC, like most cancers, is the result of environmental factors that cause normal cells to acquire genetic changes, leading to uncontrolled growth
