NBC 33 is committed to the fight against breast cancer.
Here are our latest headlines:
Lisa Rozas of Alexandria, LA wrote the book on" beating the odds."
Four years ago Rozas was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Doctors caught it early so the mother of two remained hopeful she'd battle through it and win.
Still, Rozas says she had to prepare for the worst, not only for herself, but for her family.
She kept a journal for her sons, ages six and three at the time, to help explain the end of her life if dying from the disease proved to be her fate.
"I wanted them to understand my experience. It wasn't just a waste " says Rosaz.
Rosaz is also an elementary school teacher.
She's used her experience to bring cancer to the classroom.
Today, the proud mom is living a cancer-free life.
She plans to give her book of survival to her sons when they are older.
