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.

    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.
