Christine: I realized when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994, that humor was a great connector of people. And I didn’t want to face my journey alone. I wanted support and people to surround me. Yet I soon discovered that when friends and family heard I had cancer, they didn’t know what to say. And they certainly didn’t want to say the “wrong thing,” so often times they said nothing and pulled away. I found if I could use humor to put people at ease, that it opened up the lines of communication.
