Orange County Register

Elizabeth Wallner is 52 and just marked her fifth year battling stage 4 colon cancer.

On Wednesday, surgeons plan to remove a tumor on the left lobe of her lung, and in May, they’ll try to get another cancerous tumor from her liver.

“I will fight until there is no hope,” Wallner said from her parents’ home in Laguna Hills. But Wallner said she finds peace of mind in California’s End of Life Option Act, which goes into effect June 9.
