  • When Breast Cancer Returns “I’m 61, I have metastatic breast cancer, and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”

    You don’t expect to hear those words from someone in Diana Mehrens’ situation. But they illustrate the equanimity and grace with which she is facing her disease — and her mortality. They also underscore the confidence she has in the care she’s receiving at Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center.

    Mehrens’ cancer journey began in 2002 when, at age 49, she was diagnosed with stage 3 ductal carcinoma of the breast.

    “I found the lump during breast self-examination,” she says. “It was a small but very aggressive tumor that had already spread to my lymph nodes. First I had surgery, then entered a clinical trial where I had aggressive chemotherapy, then radiation therapy.”

    In addition, because her tumor was estrogen receptor-positive, she started taking an oral medication called an aromatase inhibitor to lower estrogen levels in her body, removing the “fuel” that this type of breast cancer needs to grow.

    In January 2003, Mehrens returned to work as a licensed marriage and family therapist at the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center at Eisenhower, transitioning into private practice in Yucca Valley and doing humanitarian work. click for more
