Teacher battles breast cancer while giving birth to twinsPosted: Updated:
A Bronx teacher who lives in New Rochelle is in the fight of her life, battling an aggressive form of breast cancer.
Nicole Conlisk, 33, was a math teacher at One World Middle School in the Bronx when she was diagnosed with cancer late last year.
She was also seven months pregnant with twins, and had to stop teaching. Conlisk, who also has a 2-year-old son, gave birth to the two healthy girls two months ago.
