Re: [MOL] Progression of breast cancer: TO DENISE and ALL



Robot, I do not feel that you hurt anyone's feelings, I believe the
responses from Cori, Denise and myself were out of concern that you have
taken a position of not fighting the cancer with all your might.  I think it
would be really good if your talked to a doctor, would you do me that favor?
Lets truly make sure that what you think is fact.  Then we can take it from
there.  One step at a time, okay.  We will always be here for you to talk
too.   Your friend, lillian
