More Funny Cancer Cartoons (Again)
I found a new cancer blog today: Mom's Cancer Blog.
*neener neener nah nahh to you Miss Crip Chick and all you other non-cancer PWD*
It's written by a cartoonist (Brian Fies) whose mother developed lung cancer. Since it's about cancer, it's amazing already but Fies adds an extra layer of humor with his art. The cartoon above was found on his blog but it was actually created by another cartoonist with cancer, Miriam Engelberg.
When I saw that it mentioned bone cancer, I almost bowled over. IT'S THE FIRST ONE I'VE EVER SEEN. It reminds me of the last time I was in the hospital infusion room getting pumped full of IV fluid. There was a woman there getting her monthly dose of Boniva. She was happily chatting away about how she had to schedule this appointment early in the day because her partner and her were going on vacation that afternoon.
Is it wrong that I just wanted to take the tube out of my arm and wrap it around her happy little neck?
