October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I felt totally immersed in a paper storm, an overload of information on the topic.  Making my immersion even deeper, while preparing two breast cancer talks, I was also in the thrall of  an amazing book,  “The Emperor of All Maladies:  A Biography of Cancer” by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee.   When I closed my eyes at night, I had visions of a swirling vortex of tables and graphs.
