Portrait of a Breast Cancer Survivor – Artist’s Journey

I was so inspired by this lovely story – a portrait of a breast cancer survivor named Victoria Behm, who is a NYC artist.  She was diagnosed at the age of 57 with the exact same kind of breast cancer I had.

She made an illustrated notebook of her nine-month journey through breast cancer treatment – see her whole story HERE, along with some of her amazing artwork.  I loved this story because it brought such an element of personal triumph over her breast cancer diagnosis.  I loved her artwork (some of it will make you laugh, especially slide 9) and I especially loved that she’s a survivor.

Enjoy the story and for those of you actively fighting this disease, remember the words of Winston Churchill:

If you’re going through hell, KEEP GOING“!!!!!!
