NEW YORK -
Dana Reeve, who spent nine years caring for her paralyzed husband, Christopher Reeve, until his death last year, announced Tuesday that she has lung cancer.

Reeve, 44, said she decided to disclose her illness following rumors about her health in the media.

"I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, and am currently undergoing treatment," Reeve said in a statement. "I have an excellent team of physicians, and we are optimistic about my prognosis."

"Now, more than ever, I feel Chris with me as I face this challenge," Reeve said. "As always, I look to him as the ultimate example of defying the odds with strength, courage and hope in the face of life's adversities."

Dear God, no!!!

I pray she either goes into remission or at least she doesn't suffer too much.

She and her family have suffered enough.

Maybe this is God's way of reuniting her with Chris.

This just seems so unfair.

I hope she overcomes this. My thoughts are with her.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

As the recent death of veteran news anchor Peter Jennings showed, lung cancer is a very aggressive disease.  (He publicly announced his condition on April 5.)  I hope that Dana Reeve was diagnosed early enough so she has sufficient medical options to treat her cancer -- Jennings' was inoperable when discovered.

My prayers are with her and her son (13 years old -- WAY too young to lose one parent, let alone both).

I was very shocked when I heard the news today. I was also sad when I heard about Peter Jennings. Sad

My thoughts are with Dana and her family. I know Chris is looking after her too.
