My MIL told my 15 yr. old son that he was going to lose friends because he had cancer - in fact we were all going to lose friends because he had cancer. This was the day AFTER he had gotten out of a month long stint in ICU, 3 brain surgeries and numerous other horrors. She then went on later to tell most of her family that my hubby and I were getting a divorce due to the aforementioned son having cancer!!! How messed up is that? I finally stood up to her and told her off right royally. She barely speaks to me now but has now taken to saying hateful crap about me and my side of the family - knowing it get backs to me - as some sort of reprisal. She also wore the same coloured dress and my wedding dress, to our wedding. That should have been a HUGE red flag but sadly I didn't see the desperate grab for attention way back then. Practically everything that comes out of her mouth is either hate filled rubbish intent on offending and upsetting her target for the day OR a cry for attention. I'm amazed I'm still married to her son.
