I was treated for pancreatic cancer for most of 2015, and am fortunate and grateful to be cancer free since surgery a year ago.

While I was dealing with it I kept a couple of blogs. I used one to post updates about my progress and the other for essays and creative pieces. This second one includes nine comic strips I created.

Obviously cancer is not funny, and I never intended to make light of it. However, finding some humor in my situation helped me stay positive and gave me a sense of purpose, and may have helped me in my battle with this awful disease. I am posting it today in the hopes that it may do the same for others.

Please let me know if it brought you some relief; or if you find it offensive I will consider taking it down. I also created a video documentary of my ordeal that I posted a couple of months ago. Let me know if you would like to see the other blog or the video.

Thank you, and I wish you all the best in your journey.
