There is a woman RV'er blog that I ran across, but did not follow. Yesterday, read it again, and found that she was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer earlier this year. How awful! How did that happen?
So, I went back to the earlier entries, and saw that she discovered that she had uterine cancer in mid 2015, but it was only Stage 1. After she had a hysterectomy and the lymph nodes came out clear, her oncologist said her prognosis was excellent, particularly after she went through some radiation treatment to be safe. Her chance should be 99%.
Then, just 1-1/2 years after that, they found that the cancer has metastasized to her spine, and grew wrapping around her vertebrae. She is still fighting it.
She retired early in 2013 at the age of 51. She thought she would have at least 20 years of good health to enjoy traveling. She never had any health issue, was never hospitalized before.
