I was diagnosed with DCIS in January, 2007 and in February, 2007 I was also diagnosed with Uterine cancer. I elected to have a lumpectomy and centinel node surgery and had 35 radiation treatments for the breast cancer and a hysterectomy for the uterine cancer. I have been taking Femara for two years and feel great. When I was diagnosed with cancer, I told my cancer team I was planning on taking a trip in 2009 with the class I advise at school. On March 28th, I am flying with my class to Orlando, Florida for a visit to Dysney World. Today, 2 years later I am a strong survior and back in my classroom teaching Health. I credit my excellent outcome to the yearly mammogram I began at age 39 when my older sister was diagnoised with invasive breast cancer. Also a strong faith in God and a strong support system helped me through. I also took the time during and after my treatment to bake goodies for my cancer team. I know they enjoyed their treats and baking gave me a focus and helped me keep a positive attitude.
