Colors of Cancer - going for the cure

Colors of Cancer - going for the cure

Daly Elementary School teacher Echo Allison finds it a little embarrassing to talk about how a diagnosis of breast cancer has suddenly changed her life, affecting her family and her career in profound ways.

“It’s kind of embarrassing,” she said, “but it’s bigger than me. This message needs to get out.”

Her own faceoff with breast cancer began only a short time ago. She had gotten a mammogram in June of 2017 and it was clear. But about one year later, after seeing a public service announcement about a “funky nipple” being a sign of cancer, she went for another mammogram and in July of 2018 was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. It was a very aggressive type of cancer called inflammatory invasive ductile carcinoma.
