Pleasant Valley Middle School teacher, Kelli Frazier, loves history.  She even documents her own.

"This was going from the chemo to the radiation treatments,” Kelli said.

Kelli's scrapbook tells the story of her fight with breast cancer.  It started March 2006.

"I actually found my lump.  It surfaced very high on my left breast area.  And, you could see it,” Kelli said.

Kelli was only 39-years-old. She had no family history of the disease.

"It was one of four tumors.  The others were where I couldn't see them,” Kelli said.

The history teacher read-up on the odds of beating stage three breast cancer.  She decided to tackle it aggressively--with a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation.

"And then I also signed-on to do clinical trial of drug called Avastin--which I did for almost two and a half years,” Kelli said.

She also enlisted her family, friends, and Susan G. Komen in her fight.  Kelli signed-up to walk, with a large team behind her, in September 2006.

"I wanted to get out and show everyone that, you know, you can do this, there is a way to get through this, there is a positive outcome, even when it looks really dire,” Kelli said.

In 2007, Kelli's tests showed no signs of cancer.  But in early 2010, it came back in her lungs, bones, and liver.

"It's technically advanced breast cancer,” Kelli said.

Kelli, now 45, is back getting chemo.

"I think I still have a desire to fight, I still want to beat this, I still think it's possible, but I also know I have a lot more rough days than I used to have,” Kelli said.

Even though it will be physically draining, Kelli is going to try to make it to the "Race for the Cure" this year.

"I think Komen makes the difference.  Absolutely.  I'm positive they do,” Kelli said.

Kelli is encouraged by Komen's push to get FDA approval of the experimental drug that she believes, has kept her alive.

"They were a huge proponent in the Avastin treatment in breast cancer; they fought to keep it, even though the FDA overruled it.” Kelli said.

And she gets strength from Komen's funding for new research.

"I think a cure is possible.  And I think imminent,” Kelli said.

It's a chapter she would love to add to her scrapbook.

Woman says Susan G. Komen helped save her life.
