NANCY’S STORY: September 24, 2009
My story is simple.
I found a lump in my right breast. I had no insurance and had worked for years pretty much as a volunteer assisting others in need, so the first thing was to get Medicare, which at 67, I was eligible for. Did all that and between Powell Cancer Center and Deb Witter’s help I am on the road to recovery.
As soon as I was diagnosed I began to do black and white Visionary Cartoons as I call them. I figured it was very important to create while undergoing treatment.
Also I love my wigs – the American Cancer Society gave me two. WOW! It’s the straight highlighted hair I always wanted. I get to create a new image.
Here are some pieces of my art work.
Update 2015 I wanted to let you know I am still doing quite well as a six year survivor, going strong, working, enjoying life.
