Someone I love to pieces is having breast cancer surgery today.  We're very, very lucky because the tumor was caught early and is a highly treatable type.  She should be OK after the surgery, six weeks of radiation, and then some years of medication.  I made her this lumpectomy picture to take with her to the hospital.  A few last words to those cancer cells.  Well, a sort of cleaned-up version.
