In 2011 Darcie Milsow was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. A young mom of three, Ms. Milsow missed the whole school year last year fighting for her life. Despite life-threatening challenges, she fought through the deadly disease to return to City View Elementary for the first day of school this year. Her colleagues say she's made an incredible impact at City View by encouraging fellow teachers and students to face their fears, be grateful and relish every moment-- no matter how small.
