The Big Battle with Cancer

Ted Kennedy died today. I've got little to say about that, but I'm nonetheless interrupting my usual self-promotional blog to ask: why do people call it a battle with cancer? Does that mean everybody who dies from it is weaker than those who survived? Another point won for the infantilizing society of the denial of death, brought to you by i-tunes, BMW, and Rachel Zoe.
