    Cancer sucks.

    A lump in the breast is a problem, but these days not always without a solution. The last images should show resolution, not hopelessness.

    The message here is about perspective and understanding what’s really important and what’s not.

    Burnt toast – annoyance, burnt house – problem.

    First step? Don’t start your day consumed by anger.

    Great work as always and great timing… This is right on track with my thinking! :)
    My comic today is of the similar vibe, “Letting all the little frustrations go…” <3 Thank you!

    Not hopelessness, perhaps, but shock. It’s a big one, even if you already know. And boy, does it put things in perspective! Great illustrations.

    This is the same day, to judge from the fact that she is wearing the clothing she picked. Yes, part of her reaction to the oatmeal and so in is probably her worry about the appointment, but you start with being on edge and annoyances add up… and you’re more on edge. Once over the shock, with breast cancer you are hearing options, unless it was caught unusually late. But it is the cancer that is associated with a word used in daily language that is noticed by the patient (other one I can think of is a mole…) and so the one that fits. We take our lumps, etc…. So that day, there is shock. But the cancer isn’t the point, it could be ALS or something else, just to compare to what we generally worry over
