I am sad to hear the news of her passing. I read that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 with early stage cancer. She did not need chemotherapy she stated in an interview that I read. I did not know that it was even possible for a person with early stage cancer to suffer a recurrence after all these years. With me being a breast cancer survivor myself, this makes me very afraid. I am only 38 years old.
