Lisa was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan. Her career as a radio personality started at CJSL in Estevan in February of 1984 shortly after she graduated from Western Academy of Broadcasting in Saskatoon. In May she joined the staff at CKIT and CKCK radio in Regina where she spent over 7 years of her career playing easy listening music on CKIT. The next career move came in 1990 when she joined the staff at CJWW in Saskatoon and was happy to return to playing country music. In 1992 she moved to Toronto and helped sign-on a brand new country FM station, CISS FM. She stayed there for over 4 years until the pull of the prairies became too strong. Lisa returned to Regina in 1996 where she worked at Z99, and then moved to Saskatoon and the morning show at C95 in November of 1997.
Rob, Lisa and Rambling Dave were the number one radio morning show in Saskatoon when Lisa was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer after a vertebra in her neck collapsed. The cancer had spread to many areas of her body including the vertebra in her neck, as well as throughout her spine, ribs and liver.
Lisa was 35 years old when she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in July of 2000. Her cancer remained stable until the spring of 2010 when tests revealed the cancer was progressing (spreading). She went back into chemotherapy in May, and again in October, and is blogging about her experience on this website. Shortly after her initial diagnosis, Lisa made it her mission to raise as much money as possible for breast cancer research. To date, OVER 2.7 MILLION DOLLARShas been raised for breast cancer research at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency through events such as the C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research and the Lisa Rendall Golf Classic. Lisa is a dedicated warrior in the fight against breast cancer and an engaging speaker who brings audiences to laughter and tears as she tells her compelling story of diagnosis, living with incurable cancer, and fighting back when it progresses.
The 12th Annual C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research was held from 6am Thursday Oct 21 to 6pm Friday Oct 22, 2010 at The Mall at Lawson Heights in Saskatoon. Thanks to the generosity of Saskatoon and area residents, $296,192 was raised this year for breast cancer research at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
Lisa was involved in many other breast cancer causes including Saskatchewan’s only dragon boat team of breast cancer survivors, “Busting with Energy”. Because of her widespread bone metastases she was unable to paddle but is an honorary member of the team.
Lisa also holds an annual golf tournament, the Lisa Rendall Golf Classic for Breast Cancer Research which has raised over $400,000 in the last 10 years. Since the start of the C95 Radio Marathon in October of 2000, OVER 2.7MILLION DOLLARS has been raised at the Radio Marathon for breast cancer research at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
