    My best wishes go out to her. I think she would have dominated the masturbatory threads of SportsJournalists.com 1977 at an "MJ in the NBA Finals" level.

    That's sad. She'll be dead by the end of the year.

    Nice. Real nice. You don't know that, and neither do I.

    Some live years after the initial diagnosis. And it's not automatically terminal.

    Glad no one here wasted any sensitivity training on you.

    "Fast-growing" could be a reference to pancreatic cancer, which is particularly aggressive. And, for about 95 percent of the cancer patients who get it, pancreatic cancer is a death sentence, usually within months. I saw a friend whither away in less than six months. It wasn't good.

    So now we're saying she has pancreatic AND intestinal?

    Or did you miss the part that said it was intestinal?

    Saw it. Just saying that many kinds of fast-growing cancers turn out to spring from a spot on the pancreas. Either way, it doesn't sound good.

    OK, thought maybe you'd seen something referencing pancreatic cancer.

    Either way, best wishes to her in her battle.

    Saw some report that Farrah getting cancer means all three of the Angels have now experienced cancer in one form or another. Best wishes go out to Farrah.
