I’m thinking about how things get reduced to a symbol, shorthand ways that we communicate, and the funny ways that people think/talk about cancer.

The other day I heard a friend talking to another friend about one of her friends who has cancer and she said, “Yeah and she has cancer…you know, the bandana and whatever.”

Cancer, the bandana and whatever.

The trouble is, I knew exactly what she meant.
