"In the 'what not to say to cancer patients' category, I have a new one. Got it from a woman I already didn't like that much, and it arrived in an email that I got when I was just barely able to check emails. So maybe I wasn't in the best frame of mind. She was telling me all these details about her daughter's health, then said, "She has cancer, too, of the curable kind."
To anyone who's reading this post, please do everyone a favor ... if you know anyone who is fighting cancer, don't ever say things like [so and so has] "the curable kind."
