Navratilova says she’s cancer-free after coping with life ‘curveball’

USA TODAY, Thursday, June 24, 2010: ” Navratilova says she’s cancer-free after coping with life ‘curveball”

Navratilova, the tennis champion and activist, just completed radiation treatment for breast cancer.  “Cancer advocacy was ‘someplace I didn’t plan on doing at this stage, but life threw me that curveball so I hit it’, she adds.”

Curveball is a baseball metaphor here used by a tennis pro.  One doesn’t expect a cancer curveball just as a batter doesn’t always expect one.
