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.
