Husband and Wife Battle Breast Cancer

Literally. Husband and wife, Mike (62) and Barbara Welsh (63) of Monroe, Ohio, each had surgery this year after separate discoveries that they had breast cancer. You may be thinking, that's got to be rare? It is, with roughly 1,900 cases expected to be diagnosed this year, with about 440 men dying from the illness.
