dj - thanks for the explain, that makes more sense, even my own dr that I highly regard, says they dont often know what makes one type highly fast moving/agressive, and similar type/cells slow as mud.
chris - i would rather hope they can find a cure before a reason. the more advanced dna work that happens, the more chance, perhaps not in our lifetimes, but one day they will have it all figured out.
me - my original goal in life was to live to be 100 and be shot by a jealous husband, lol.
