The are thousands of celebrity cancer victims, Wikipedia have them listed in alphabetical order which feels like a very cold approach. Male, Female, Rich, Poor, Young, Old. Race or Creed, it doesn't matter Cancer will not discriminate. One of the most annoying things I know is when people say "It is a very curable type of Cancer" seriously its just the wrong thing to say, there are too many variations, stages, treatment regimes etc. You can Google "Very Curable Cancer" and its beggar belief to see the results.
