    First and foremost, i would extend my sincerely condolence to Keshi’s and family. As someone that had lost a sister to breast cancer and another one fighting this bad disease also breast cancer, i would appreciate if the family name what type of cancer that killed her. The only reason , i am asking for this, is to educate people so that they can know the types of cancer that is out there and what to look for in seeking early treatment.
