Re: People saying someone died of breast cancer

No one has ever said that to me, but when I was first diagnosed, everyone had a story about someone they knew who had breast cancer and mine sounded "just like theirs."Only those of us with cancer know that everyone is different and everyone's treatment is is tailored to her specific needs. I think it is ignorance and I don't mean that in a negative way. People don't know until they experience it, just like we didn't know until we got it. I also think people don't know what to say.
