    Feeling guilty laughing at cancer article

    I know it's nothing to laugh at... But when I started reading the article, I nearly did a spit-take. If you don't understand why, you are more mature than me. And if you do understand why, you're still probably more mature than me. I set the bar pretty low.

    Rare cancer reignites debate over breast implants' safety

    When Kathy Arreola decided to enlarge her breasts in 2000, silicone gel-filled implants were restricted by the government because of safety questions.

    She had no qualms about the remaining option, silicone pouches filled with saline.

    “I thought, ‘These are safe. These are not going to be a problem,’” said Arreola, 54, who lives in Southern California. “I was really happy with them.”

    That changed abruptly in late 2014. She awoke one morning to a “stabbing pain” in her left breast, which had ballooned because of swelling around the implant.

    She was found to have a new type of lymphoma – a cancer of the immune system – caused by implants. Called breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, the malignancy is distinct from breast cancer and very rare. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which first warned of a link in 2011, said in March that it had reports of 359 cases worldwide, including nine deaths.

    Ahem...of course, I forgot her-she's brilliant! Perhaps it is a stage name and I shoudn't laugh.

    That was my first thought - but if they wanted to use a pseudonym, why would they a) include a picture, and b) use a name with such an obvious double entendre?

    For what it's worth, I looked up the name on Facebook. Given the general location from the article, I found one potential match - but the hair color is different. But the last name matched that of a few people, so it's a name that actually exists.

    If anyone wants to look up "Kathy Arreola" in a porn actors database, please report back. I'm at the office, so that's not gonna happen on my end.

    At 54 years of age? A little long in the tooth to enhance once's profile if she is still in the profession you are alluding she belongs.
