Cartoonist Marisa Acocella Marchetto’s Cancer Vixen is funny, touching, and even romantic. An unflinching depiction of the daily trials of breast cancer treatment, Cancer Vixen is also a witty and insightful tale of love, family, and survival. Marchetto uses her cartooning not only to tell her story, but to parody the beautiful models who relentlessly (and unsuccessfully) stalk her restauranteur husband. Hers is a genuinely inspiring story.
