Hi Cyndy--I did a GOOGLE search, since I have no personal knowledge of this.

It is definitely worth Kelly discussing this with her onc.

May this disease NEVER be allowed to take another wife, mother, daughter, sister, lover or friend........

You can choose to look UP or DOWN--it's all about putting perfume on a pig. It is still a pig and it STILL stinks, but it stinks BETTER!
