64. As a cancer veteran (I hate saying "survivor"), she does not anger me.
Edited on Tue Jul-31-07 07:21 PM by Contrary1
When you are first diagnosed with a major disease, you are likely to think things that wouldn't normally enter your head.
As my oncologist so honestly put it "First, it assaults your body; then it assaults your mind".

I would assume that this same statement would apply to diseases other than cancer.
