Breast Cancer

My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago. After undergoing treatement, she recovered and the "cancer" was in remission. I found out about 2 months ago that the cancer was back. This time, in her other breast. Cancer starts in the cells of the breast, and is the second most common type following lung cancer. Hoever, among women breast cancer is by far the most common cause of cancer. She had her opperation about 2 weeks ago. The surgery was scheduled to take 2-3 hours. It acutally took 5 hours because the tumor was so very large. I just want for people to be aware of such so that we can do the things possible to prevent this type of disease and heartach. It is not something to take lightly, it is very real.
