Cancer is no laughing matter


As the mother of a cancer survivor, and a cancer survivor myself, I was offended by the Jan. 16 Dan Wasserman cartoon about Lance Armstrong, in which the cyclist is depicted saying, “My lying is in remission.” Whatever Armstrong did in terms of doping, he did survive cancer. Remission is no laughing matter to those of us who have struggled against this disease.
