Woman Battling Terminal Cancer Receives Unexpected Phone Call From Reba McEntire

Woman Battling Terminal Cancer Receives Unexpected Phone Call From Reba McEntire

Lisa Tapley is currently battling a Glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer, and is terminally ill. Since September 2018, Lisa has been through several surgeries, chemo treatments, and more to combat her illness. However, it was a recent decision Lisa made to not undergo any more treatments and just let things take their course.

Lisa’s all-time favorite artist is Reba McEntire. For a long time, Lisa’s family had been trying to set up a surprise and have Lisa meet and sing with Reba. Reba is obviously a busy woman, but still made time for Lisa and reached out to her. It must have come as a total shock to Lisa!

Every single dollar and dime in this fund goes directly to the family.
