Breast Cancer and Cartoons: Cancer Vixen

I was reading Healthbolt earlier today when I came across this gem - Cancer Vixen. The name pretty much sums it up. Told in graphic novel form, cartoonist Marisa Acocella Marchetto tells her tale of battling breast cancer.

Her intro reads:

What happens when a shoe-crazy, lipstick-obsessed, wine swilling, pasta slurping, fashion-fanatic, single-forever, about-to-get-married big city girl cartoonist (me, Marisa Acocella) with a fabulous life finds…A LUMP IN HER BREAST?!?

Full of dark humor, irony and honesty, Cancer Vixen is a great read. Check it out and Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

She was featured in some magazine a while back...maybe People or Glamour. I tore it out and mailed it to my aunt (who was undergoing chemo) and she loved it.

I love this!!! There is one part where she says I'm 44 years old, just getting married and have NO TIME for you Cancer!! It's brilliant and a great gift for people dealing with Cancer in the family or themselves (as long as they are ready to find it funny...if that makes sense)
