Cancer Vixen online

September 17, 2008 § 1 Comment

I just discovered that “Cancer Vixen”, an autobiographical comic book by Marisa Acocella Marchetto is available in its entirety online.

The book tagline goes like this:

What happens when a shoe-crazy, lipstick-obsessed, wine-swilling, pasta-slurping, fashion-fanatic, single-forever, about-to-get-married big-city girl cartoonist with a fabulous life finds . . . a lump in her breast?

A personal journey through the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, this should be an interesting read for anyone who’s a cancer patient, knows someone with cancer or who’s involved in cancer care – big-city-fashion-obsessed or not (image credit).

Check out Marisa’s website, where you can also buy the book. A percentage of the profits will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

On a personal note: Marisa has actually commented The Sterile Eye once. Not bad!
