The third from our latest Barbies Losing It series by Annie Dennison.
Ms. Does This Wig Make My Ass Look Smaller: She makes jokes about the way she looks, with or without a chemo wig. And there’s the weight gain. The red-faced hot flushes. The scars. The terrifying toenails. All of it, fodder for comic relief at the times she most needs it. Laughter isn’t a cure for cancer, but it can be good medicine.
