I heard about John Edwards wife having reoccuring breast cancer and I am a breast cancer surviver. It has been almost five years since it was detected with a mamogram. It was in the very early stages and so far it has not come back. Yea-a-a-a-a!!!! What a relief. My mother had colon cancer and so far she is cancer free. She is almost eighty years old and doing well. She went thru chemotherapy and almost lost her hair with it.
