Tired of cancer

Big downer.  After being NED for 10+ years, my Mom's breast cancer has returned. She had a mammogram a little while ago, then an ultrasound, then an MRI, and then a biopsy, which came back negative.  Benign!  BUT, the doctor (to his credit) ordered a second biopsy because the negative biopsy didn't square with other test results.  This one came back positive.  Ductal invasive carcinoma.  Ugh.  So, Mom has to put on the battle gear again.

Not fair.

Wish cancer would just leave my friends and family alone.
