My daughters felt anger

I was 42 years old when my cancer was discovered, and my twin daughters were 15 at that time. And when we did talk to the cancer specialist, I noticed a real strain of anger in my daughters' voices because they couldn't imagine that there was all this research going on, but yet there wasn't a cure for breast cancer. And I think that they were recognizing not only my own mortality, but the possibility that they would have to face this in their future as well.
