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.

    donna what is reverse osmosis water…do you recommend i get and mushrooms….dcis intermediate…also i am going in for my last discussion with cheryl ewing who works for esserman. she is going to tell me about tamoxifen for dcis intermediate. but so far two mastectomy opinions for my length of disease. i have been a little lax on juicing but still do green powders and bought quercitin. cutting way down on wine…actually none now with a beer here and there and tequila special occasions…my d.o. has told me the merits of the cleanness of tequila.

    feel great as usual since dcis has no symptoms;-)

    and btw the reason i am in sf is from a club med guy in st. lucia…just read your story. but he is now married with 2 kids.
