I guess I wanted to show people, among other things, that you don't have to be a hero to get through cancer. You can be a craven coward and get through. You have to stay on your medication and take your treatments, that's all.
Cancer did not bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet.
El cáncer es lo mejor que me ha pasado nunca
Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.
Héroes y mártires del capitalismo, pues. ¡Flor de pareja!
Mario Vargas Llosa
