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 was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles when I was 12. I graduated with a BA in Journalism/Advertising from San Diego State University. After a short stint in magazine ad sales in LA, I was offered my dream job working for Club Med. I spent two years working at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met while working at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico. We returned to "real life/jobs" for three years before we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. Together we wrote a book called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life," a quote book for new graduates. Becoming a mom changed my life and I was fortunate to work part-time from home with many amazing nonprofits. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis inspired me to an investigation that culminated in creating DCIS 411 and Give Wellness.

    Congratualations! That is so exciting. I also wanted to check in again about giving this site out to other patients I am peer counseling. I think they might really benefit from it, but do want to confirm with you first – also UCSF peer support program. Glad to know it all went well.
