Lisa knows what it means to endure and go the extra mile. The strength and resiliency that once helped her compete as a triathlete, helped her to win the battle with thyroid cancer.
She still relies on that strength today as she tries to get back to work and back on her feet after the cancer, which caused lingering complications including respiratory distress.
When she got COVID-19 and couldn’t work for an extended period of time, she lost income and realized she needed help to cover the high cost of food. That’s when she visited the Food Bank of Northern Nevada’s Mobile Harvest distribution at the Neil Road Recreation Center in Reno.
As a strong woman and single mother of three, Lisa knows she will get through these difficult days and greatly appreciates having access to healthy food for her family.
“I am very grateful for the Food Bank,” Lisa says. “These [groceries] make a difference for us. Every little bit helps.”
