I did have someone tell me that once. My answer was, "we all have to die from something". Which, of course, is true. I went on to let them know that the majority of people who are diagnosed with BC go on to lead a long life and die of something completely unrelated.
I know they mean no harm, but I do let them know that if they meet someone else with BC, that might not be the thing to say. I'm pretty outspoken, so I leave a lot of open mouths.....just sayin.
