Many High School teacher winning cancer battle

Posted: Updated:
Many, La. -

Sherry Fulton is cancer free after a ten-month battle.

"I noticed a lump in my breast over the Christmas holidays. I had lumps before, but this one was different. It didn't move when I touched it," said Sherry.

That's the moment this mother from Many knew something was wrong.

"Around the second week of January I went to see my doctor and he sent me over to surgeon. He was still very reassuring," said Sherry.

But that didn't last for long. The surgeon sent her on to get a mammogram and further testing.

"The very next day I had a phone call telling me that it was cancer. On the following Monday, I went in and had the tumor removed," said Sherry.

Following her double mastectomy, Sherry went through chemotherapy and now radiation.

"It takes your hair in my case and it will take everything if you let it. Cancer is a fight and once you're thrown in there you've got to fight it. You've got to educate yourself and face it head on," said Sherry.

Her family, along with her employer Many High School, have stuck by Sherry through everything along the way.

"My students made these bracelets for me. They sold them to help offset expenses," said Sherry.

As of this week, Sherry is free of cancer and won't need another physical until January.

"It's a happy day. I feel wonderful."
