12 Days of Kindness: Cancer took both her parents this year, son in chemo

Watch as we bring a little sunshine back into Lisa Anderson and her son Jakob's lives

The year 2017 has proven to be the most difficult year in Lisa Anderson’s life. 

In March, she lost her mother to cancer and just six months later, her father also lost his battle with cancer. 

Through it all Lisa remained strong with her loving husband, Roy, and her son, Jakob, by her side. But in October, Jakob was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and he is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

Watch as we visit Lisa and Jakob at their home to deliver some much needed sunshine.

Special thank you to Pro Am Sports Excellence for bringing smiles to the faces of this hockey-loving family during this difficult time.

Join us on tomorrow morning as the 12 Days of Kindness continues each weekday leading up to Christmas.
