I don't watch 'Big Brother' and have never heard of Britney, but I feel like I just got punched in the stomach reading this. Cancer at any age is terrible, but 2 months?? I hope and pray that baby can be treated and go on to live a healthy life. This is so sad.

I'm not even a baby person but that baby looks adorable in that pic, even her feet look cute the way they are positioned against each other. I'm so sad to hear she has cancer, I can't imagine how a baby even gets cancer????

This is too bad. I hope it isn't one of the really bad childhood cancers. What's bad is the US government spends money on cancer research and childhood cancers get the smallest amount of funding. How in the world can they do that? Lung cancer gets a lot of money. If people quit smoking lung cancer will almost disappear. Start spending money on childhood cancers Washington.

This is heart breaking to hear. My 10 year old son has Stage IV Neuroblastoma and is now on hospice after relapsing several months ago. It hurts to hear that any other family has to walk in the shoes we are walking in. I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone. Have they released the name of the type of cancer their daughter has yet?
