We all are deeply saddened by the loss of certain well-known and beloved stars in the recent days. The news of the departing of David Bowie was enough to bring tears to his fans’ eyes, and then we heard how our favorite, Celine Dion, lost her husband and brother in very quick succession. The culprit was the same, gravely dreaded cancer.
