Editor’s note: This Graphic Medicine piece is a commentary on communication in medicine, health literacy, and how far we sometimes are from our patients in oral communication. This story is loosely based on the physician-author’s own experience of being diagnosed with bone cancer at age 15. At a writing retreat, she was encouraged to draw her story — pairing words with images.
