Lori Burns

Monroe Elementary Principal


I was 35 years old when I was diagnosed with a fast growing type of breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy even though the tumor was found contained in only one breast. Under the recommendation of the doctor, doing this would lessen the chance of its reoccurrence. No cancer was found in my lymph nodes. I had a 1% chance of it coming back. I have gone to all of my appointments, the last one was in June of 2012. After blood work and a physical exam, everything looked good.

In October I developed a dry cough that would not go away. Since it was cold season, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I went to a doctor in November since it wasn’t getting better. They sent me with an inhaler and said that I had asthma. I was also given something for acid reflux since they found ulcers from my throat down my esophagus. After doing this for over a month with no relief I scheduled an appointment with my oncologist. On Monday February 4th, 2013 our world changed. They did an MRI and before I was even out of the machine, the oncologist told me that he needed to see us right away. They found lesions on my brain, lungs and liver. More doctors came in and we were escorted to departments where they made a mold of my head for radiation, I had a cat scan, and prescriptions were given to take right away that night to start to shrink the tumor on my brain. We had to process all this ourselves and then go home and tell our kids, family, coworkers and friends. I was also told that I could no longer work or drive. Most importantly, Bob and I drove to Waukesha, to tell our oldest son, Sam, who is in his first year of college. I needed to be held and to tell him face to face. We returned home at midnight after a long day of processing much information. I had my first radiation treatment in Madison on Tuesday. The fight now begins…… Here is my testimony, My Journey In Faith…
