Dear PLS,
My grandma has breast cancer. Im very worried about her. Why does this have to happen?

Grandma's Girl

Grandma's Girl,
Were sorry to hear about your grandma. We love our grandmothers like no one else in the world. Even experts dont know exactly why someone gets breast cancer, but being older and having a history of it in the family can make a woman more likely to get it.

Fortunately, doctors do know a lot about how to fight it. You can be helpful to your grandma by encouraging her during the treatments she is getting to fight the disease. You might consider wearing a pink ribbon or raising money for breast cancer research. A positive attitude can help your grandma and you during this time.

Think Pink!
