Josephine writes, “My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer on Valentine’s Day. Happy V-Day, right??  She, being the eternal matriarch of the family, called each child individually and told us the news. She is VERY upbeat and positive, and so we are, too. I am a mathematics major in college and when she told me the news, my sister and I both wanted tattoos in her honor.  At first I wanted a blue whale, it being her favorite animal, but I went with a heart curve. In mathematics, as I’m sure you know, there are 6 heart curves.  This is just one of them, and the least ‘busy.’  I am proud to display it on my right forearm for my mother through this trying time.”
