GREAT NEWS — Oncotype DX Test Results!

Dr. Laura Esserman called me with some GREAT NEWS this evening. My Oncotype DX Test Score results came back as LOW RISK  for invasive breast cancer! She said I have a 10% risk of invasive cancer at 8 years — not much different than the average woman who has a lifetime risk of 12%.

For those interested in learning more about the Oncotype DX for DCIS Test:

About Donna Pinto

I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.
