My daughter in law is recovering from radium treatment after having stage 1 breast cancer surgery. She was, and is, struggling a bit with depression, and having a 2 year old child to deal with, but at least the prognosis is good. The other day in a shop she happened to mention the surgery to a woman, and then had to listen while the woman told her of a relative who went through the same thing, got well, and then four months later was diagnosed with stage four metastases of the cancer throught her body and died six weeks later! My DDIL has mentally crashed for Christmas, feels really ill and exhausted, is not sure her prognosis is correct etc etc. How thoughtless that unknown woman is to open her mouth and create such mayhem. I am really angry about it.
