Chris at last year’s event at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
By: Angie Gallagher
It’s time for another RE/MAX Access blog featuring one of our wonderful agents. This time we bring to you Chris Lyons. Chris and his brother Jim joined our office earlier this year. One of the first things I noticed about Chris was every time he came into the office, he was all smiles. I recently learned that this happy, cheery agent is also a four-time cancer survivor. I personally found it amazing that someone who had endured what Chris had, could still come into work and bring happiness to everyone around him. I could not wait to sit down and talk with him more about his experience.
Q. I understand you are a cancer survivor. Can you tell me more about your first diagnosis?
Q. How did you tell your family and friends?
Q. Can you tell me more about Fox Chase Cancer Center, and the treatment you received there?
Q. How long have you been cancer free?
Q. During those years of being diagnosed with cancer, beating it, and then being diagnosed again, where did you get your strength and resilience from?
Chris with his girlfriend.
Q. What advice would you give to others who are going through the same thing you went through?
Q. When did you get started in real estate?
Q. What made you want to be an agent?
Q. What do you love about working for RE/MAX Access?
Q. Earlier I asked you about your strength and resilience as a cancer survivor. How do you use strength and resilience as a realtor?
Last year, Chris and his dog Madson participated in FCCC’s annual Paws for the Cause walk.
This year, Chris and Madson will participate in the walk again on October 20th. Chris plans exceed his fundraising goal from last year. He would like to raise more money for the great doctors at Fox Chase, as they help others who are going through what he has gone through!
