Laurie Nelson (Tisdale) class of 84 Bringing Hope to the world

November 13, 2015 by Dave Nelson (Register to contact)

Laurie Ann Nelson grew up in Show Low and graduated in 1984 from Show Low High School. But the small-town girl is living far from the tall pines and the mountain air -- she now lives in the exotic desert coastal city of Abu Dhabi in the Untied Arab Emirates. Laurie is on a mission of hope and strives to make a valuable contribution to cancer awareness in the fast growing middle eastern country where awareness and conversation are not openly promoted. She is on a mission to provide a safe and open conversation in an effort to promote early detection and provide hope for those who are in the midst or just beginning their journey of treatment. You see Laurie herself is a survivor of stage 3 brain cancer.
Laurie has documented her experience in a book "When Gray Becomes a Primary Color". In it she details how her hectic and face paced life was turned upside down with the diagnoses giving her 2 years to live. Twelve years later, Laurie has a mantra "Cancer is just a term it does not define you". Laurie spends her time giving inspirational meetings and raising funds for cancer research and patient support.
