    That’s horrible news. Live life for today and have a good time and hug your loved ones. ANYTHING can happen. I hope she makes the best of the time she has left.

    She fought cancer before and has cancer again. She has such an optimistic outlook on life. It’s sad to hear but she’s proved to be a strong, tough cookie. She’d die a happy woman.
