For artist Amy Grantham, being diagnosed with breast cancer at 31 was life-changing in every sense of the word. It wasn’t just that she underwent two lumpectomy surgeries and had to make hard decisions about fertility. Having cancer also rearranged her priorities. She chronicled her experience through her blog, “Boo Cancer, You Suck,” and a feature film, Lily. On today’s episode, Amy and I talk about her journey with cancer as well as depression, and why art and writing play critical roles in her life.
