What can you say?

Cancer has been a fact of life for humanity for many, many years, some countries more than others. What is cancer? It is abnormal growth of abnormal cells leading to the formation of abnormal tissue. In other words, your cells freak out and make tumors. They can spread pretty quick, too. And if you've had a type of cancer before, you are, I gather, at a higher risk for having your cells freak out again in some other area.

Like my aunt. She had and beat breast cancer. She's one tough cookie. But she went to the doctor yesterday because of persistent pain in her leg.

She has bone cancer.

It was not a good day for the home team, yesterday.

Oh, RP...I hurt for you guys. What a rough break for your aunt. Good vibes/prayers/energy/whatever-you-believe-in to you and your family.

I never do know what to say. I am so sorry.

Gosh that is terrible news, I'm so sorry. I hope, pray that your aunt can pull off another another win against this.

We are all pulling together with your home team with our good wishes, prayers and whatever else it takes!

I never know what to say, either. Other than I'm very sorry, for your aunt and all who love her. It seems wholly unjust that someone who has fought the good fight and won once already should be forced to don the armor again.

Best wishes to your aunt and to all of you who love her.

RP, I am sorry. The same thing happened to my mother-in-law. She beat breast cancer and then got bone cancer years later. She was a wonderful person.

The months ahead will be tough. My sympathies to all involved.

Bless your heart and your Aunt's heart. I will be pulling for the home run for the home team.

I am so sorry...I am praying for her health and recovery.

Hugs to all.

I'm extremely sorry to hear that. Life sometimes just isn't fair.

Posted by: Simon at April 17, 2005 10:39 AM

Hope she can beat this one, too. We're rootin' for the home team!

Terribly sorry to hear that, RP. It's a constant worry for my family too - my Mom is in remission and my aunt is in chemo. Cancer truly sucks.

Best wishes for your Aunt.
