Cancer Made Me a Shallower Person: A Memoir in Comics

by Miriam Engelberg

When Miriam Engelberg finds a lump in her breast, she is faced with the most frightening diagnosis of her life: cancer.

As she undergoes surgery, radiation, and chemo, Miriam experiences illness as she has never before experienced it. She cannot help but to view her life differently; cancer has given her a new context.

Honest and open, Engelberg’s memoir takes readers on an unforgettable journey. If nothing else, her revelations will force readers to reconsider how they treat people who are ill, cancer or otherwise.

Crudely drawn, but really well written.
