I'm a guest on this BBC program about columns by Bill Keller and Emma Gilbey Keller, criticizing a woman who blogs about her life with cancer. I came out of the blocks a bit wild, but had a very good conversation you can hear by clicking the Listen Now link:
Great to stumble on your blog! Best of luck with everything. Have you heard of FAMEDS? Freedom of Access to Medicines is the non-profit leading the effort agains the FDA from disproving Avastin this month as 17,500 women with Breast Cancer are surviving on the drug. Please sign and share the urgent petition: http://fameds.org/petition.php
thank you FAMEDS folks. many other people take avastin, for cancers and other conditions. i'll sign.
Anytime I see anything "pink" related talking about finding the cure, I joke that "Breast cancer. Because f** curing other cancers". Not only that, but it's so unglamorous, almost shameful, to talk about our kind of cancer. I totally get it, thanks for the awesome drawings!
Thanks for your comment whatever.it.takes. Our society loves poop jokes but does not embrace Bowel cancer. (Can you blame us?) People think Breast Cancer Awareness is the same as being aware that women have breasts.... Who isn't aware of that? Colon, Rectum, Anal awarenss leaves colon cancer crowd without much public support. I guess I'm working on it, one cartoon at a time.
as if there's a "good" cancer!!
