Decreased libido is a common effect of cancer treatment, but it can be awkward to talk about and it is often brushed under the carpet. Elizabeth Shefrin doesn't shy away from this most intimate of topics, and in this embroidered comic she shares with gentle humour how her husband's cancer treatment affected their sex life.
