Eloise Orr had plenty on the horizon. As a 20-year-old junior at the University of Illinois in Champaign, she had finals coming up. Then she'd be off to Spain in the fall for a semester abroad. None of those plans included breast cancer.

Nora Jaskowiak, MD, discovered that Orr had ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), an early-stage cancer usually limited to the breast duct. But Orr's breast cancer would be anything but limited. In fact, it would threaten her life again and again for the next five years. Eloise Orr looked to Medical Center physicians to tailor a cancer treatment regimen that would not interfere with her life plans.
