She drank a fatal amount of alcohol because she had a substance abuse problem. In fact, her alcohol consumption may have contributed to her breast cancer.
It's something people aren't willing to talk about -- the connection between alcohol and breast cancer.
I had a mastectomy and cancer treatment too, but I didn't consume excess amounts of alcohol. I urge women who have a history of any kind of substance abuse, or any kind of compulsive behavior like anorexia, to get help and support if they develop cancer so they don't slip into old, maladaptive ways of behaving.
