A reassuring new study finds they can take a two-year break from these drugs to get pregnant without raising their short-term risk of cancer coming back. “This is really good news for young women and their doctors and their families,” said Dr. Ann Partridge of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, who led the study. Results were being discussed Thursday at the San Antonio Breas

Gus, a two-year-old tabby cat, sits on a fluffy, white pet bed in his Calgary home, the afternoon sun making his orange fur glow. The tips of his ears are missing, and so is a part of his tail. A portion of his back toes are gone, and under a snug, green shirt, there are patches of skin where his hair will never grow back. But when Margaret Doyle enters the room with catnip, he bounces over to the piano bench, where her extended hand waits. "He's mentally exactly the same as any other cat, which
