The Masked Writer
Chronic implies that it will be a long-term struggle and those that don't have the luxury of long term survival may be thought of as not measuring up to some arbitrary standard...advanced breast cancer can and does cause death rather quickly, treated vigorously or untreated

Karolen I. Paularena
Unfortunately, the pink ribbons and the smiling faces are only part of the story. Each year about 40,000 unlucky women die of breast cancer. That means that over one out of every five women diagnosed with this illness will not be a survivor.
