Little girl has breast cancer

I read about this very young girl who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age two. At three she had a mastectomy. She's now four years old, and her doctors say her prognosis is good. She will have reconstructive surgery at some time in the future. Aleisha Hunter was on the Today show yesterday with her mom.

How can such a small child have breast cancer? An article in Canada's Globe and Mail reported that Aleisha has juvenile secretory breast carcinoma, and that there is no support for a trend of increased cases of breast cancer among children.
