Cartoonist and self-described shoe addict Marisa Acocella Marchetto is renowned for humorously chronicling the mores of a certain sector of New York society—her Gucci Gucci Goo cartoon of a woman cooing over a baby pram is a classic. That same incisive wit was brought to bear on her triumph over breast cancer, a battle she chronicles in the best-selling graphic novel Cancer Vixen. Marchetto recently collaborated with C. O. Bigelow proprietor Ian Ginsberg on a limited edition collection of Cancer Vixen body products, launching in October, adorned with her illustrations. Bigelow will donate $250,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Here, Marchetto on her transformation from victim to victory.
