 Husband-wife Duo Fight Breast Cancer
A man who supported his wife through her battle with breast cancer was shocked to discover that he developed breast cancer 10-years later. The probability of a couple developing the same form of cancer within 10-years span was 20,000:1.

Mr. Paul Cross was diagnosed with grade 2 cancer after he noticed a lump in the breast while having a bath. Soon he had to undergo mastectomy. Biopsy reports of the lymph nodes confirmed that Mr. Cross's cancer had not spread and so there was no need for further treatment like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
