" Take a Life Crisis, and Add Humor", Womenetics Interviews Christine Clifford

Then I had what I now call my "twilight zone" experience. Six weeks after my surgery -- I had already started both chemotherapy and radiation therapy -- I woke in the middle of the night with a vision: cartoons. As many as 50 cancer-related cartoons started popping up in my head. I went downstairs into my office and started madly scribbling as many as I could. Went back upstairs, crawled into bed, and thought, "What was that?" The next morning, I went to a Barnes & Noble and the public library.

Their reactions turned into cartoons in my first book, Not Now... I'm Having a No Hair Day! I started searching for signs of humor and suddenly, everything, including my outlook, changed.
