It`s only fitting we found Jeanne Gramling in her 8th grade drama class. All of the energy she burns up with students might disguise it, but it`s hard to find anyone who`s had a tougher time-- or a more dramatic year-- than Gramling. "It was a total surprise to me," she says. "The lump kept getting larger and larger." Gramling was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of the last school year. At the start of this one, her students are noticing the difference: her hair has fallen out and she sometimes is out sick because of the chemotherapy treatments. Gramling says it won`t keep her from doing what she loves. "This year, more than any year, knowing I have cancer, knowing what I`m going through... it is so important for me to be here. These kids, I get so much from them. I mean they connect with me, They give me this spirit really." Chemotherapy on Friday is keeping Gramling from participating in this year`s Race for the Cure. In her place racing will be the women who work with Gramling at Fuller Middle School.
