When I look at the fabulous cover, the Muhammad Ali quote: “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” comes to mind. The butterfly represents survivorship (and gardens; Dr Kriel has started an amazing initiative, based on an excellent study, looking at how gardening improves survivorship. What an amazing spring and summer project!)
The butterfly also represents, to me, navigation. As it flits from flower to flower. Each patient being a different flower – beautiful with her own fragrance, and some like me…with thorns.
And the fight – our Super Survivors who make the inspirational quote “Don’t count the days, make the day’s count” a reality.
