Meet Becky Reister. She teaches 4th grade at Kirksville Elementary. This is her survival story.
I was diagnosed with Stage 2 cancer in 2017. My initial thoughts were, of course, filled with a lot of fear and lots of questions before facing this news. I had never thought about choosing a surgeon or oncologist. It was a lot to take in in a short amount of time. Plus, I was worried about keeping my students on track and finding a long-term substitute teacher.
