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.

    Having known you for over 30 years, I can honestly say you have always “paid it forward”. What a journey you’ve been through… and still experiencing. Words cannot express how incredibly proud I am of you. To touch so many lives, in a positive way, is what we should all strive for in our lives. The people whom you have helped are truly blessed… That includes me.

    With love and friendship,

    Greg Kelman

    Congratulations for creating this blog, Donna. I feel so grateful to have this website as a resource and a support. It is a light in the darkness for so many women. Still wish I could find more support though for women with high grade DCIS. Sometimes I feel like I am alone in that situation and don’t know what to do.

  4. I added it to my YouTube favorites so that I can watch it the day before my yearly mammograms.

    Donna I love and admire the journey your on. Educating and touching people’s lives. I’ve just had an interesting experience with breast cancer and would love to share it with you. What number can I reach you. I’d like to speak. Thanks.
