Mrs. Lisa Fox
I was born here in Onslow County and have lived here most of my life. I have been teaching for 34 years with the last 20 being here at DMS. I am married and have one son who is a senior at UNC Charlotte and will graduate in May with a double major in Earth and Environmental Science and Geography.
I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2020, exactly one week after COVID restrictions took place. Going through chemotherapy, a bilateral mastectomy, and 30 rounds of radiation was the toughest battle I have ever faced. In July 2021, the doctors found a cancerous lesion in my brain, so in August I had brain surgery to remove the lesion and 6 more rounds of radiation on my head to make sure it was gone. In March of 2022, doctors found cancer in my left adrenal gland. More radiation followed, and now I'm waiting to see if I am cancer free once again. My doctors all call me a walking miracle.I'm just happy to still call myself a survivor!
