When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Lili felt overwhelmed, but not so much from the typical issues that breast cancer patients have to deal with. She was overwhelmed by the impact it would have on others and the pity she felt from them because of her young age. Lili preferred to fight the cancer with humour (sometimes intentionally quirky) and cheer. Out of this approach, and equipped with her graphic design skills, was born a desire to start creating comic books that deal with breast cancer and a plethora of other related issues. Since then, Lili’s made a career out of it. Her message on coping with breast cancer and the presence of her voice in the blogosphere represent a beacon of hope for many women.
