You may find this interesting; it wasn't something I knew until today.  I was simply following several links on breast cancer when I came across an article in which this was the first paragraph:  

Over the past 20 years, Dr. Marisa Weiss has treated thousands of women diagnosed with breast cancer. But in April of 2010, the founder of the website breastcancer.org found herself on the other side of the examining table. After a routine mammogram, she was diagnosed with a breast tumor.

Here is a link to the rest of the article:

Ladies

As a fellow Aussie I have to agree with Racy and dreaming.  KM is a doll and handled her diagnosis with grace and elegance!

It was interesting for me that I was the same age as Kylie when she was diagnosed and a similiar op and treatment.  

Love
