The Jabberwocky in a Cancer Lab

A great article about an interaction between cancer survivors and cancer researchers.... and a great description that clarifies why the omentum is removed as part of many cancer staging surgeries...

An excerpt from Susan Gubar's article:

While Anirban described placing samples of healthy omentum — an apron of tissue hanging over the intestines — in a petri dish and then adding cancer cells, I remembered how, unbeknown to me, slithy growths had burbled through my abdomen, whiffling through my omentum, ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and a section of my bowels, all of which had to be snicker-snacked. John Tenniel, I felt sure, produced the best illustration of the Jabberwocky.
