It's tragic to know that cancer can have such a devastating impact on some families, and I'm very sorry that yours is one of them.  Unfortunately it seems that scientists still have no clear idea why some cancers, mainly ovarian, breast and bowel, are hereditary, or even why that should be the case.  I guess if they can identify the key to that then it'll go a long way to finding a cure.

Praying for you and your family. Strength of character seems to play a huge part in the fight against cancer- so I'm sure you'll be fine in the end.

My other grandma's been diagnosed with breast cancer. I am certain it won't kill her so I'm not extremely upset about it. I fought this battle once before, I can do it again.

Sorry to read this.  Changes to lifestyle can help tremendously.  Good advice and help here http://www.canceractive.com/ http://www.thehaven.org.uk/ and here http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/
My husband was diagnosed with breast cancer 9 years ago and although he did undergo a total mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy, he also embraced many holistic and complementary therapies too.  I hope your grandma makes a speedy and complete recovery.

That must be hard so soon after the death of your other Grandma, Connor - but I admire your positive attitude and I'm sure your cheerfulness will help keep her spirits up.  I wish her a complete recovery. hug
