Craftyone is a little sad today. After more than half my life dealing with cancer in my family (including hers 9 years ago), there is yet another family member dying from this insidious disease. I has lost my mother and two brothers and am now going to lose a niece. The majority of my family - mother, all her four children and 4 out of 5 grandchildren - has or had a "bad" gene and it has decimated it. My biggest comment now is that if you have one of these "bad" genes, don't let it beat you. My niece's life has not been an easy one, and just when it seems that life is being kind to her, this has happened. I only hope that her children will be influenced into being monitored from an early enough age. That's all for now.
