Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre Aus dem Nachlass von Margaret Keswick Jenks die Ende der 1990er-ahre an den Folgen einer Krebserkrankung starb, wurden die Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres mit der Visi- on gegründet, Anlaufstellen für die ambulante Krebsversorgung in einer dem Kran- kenhausbau unähnlichen wohnlichen und eigenständigen Architektur zu schaffen. Erklärtes Ziel dieser Einrichtungen ist es, die von den Betroffenen gehegten Bedürf- nisse an den Raum ernst zu nehmen und der Monotonie der Gestaltung medizinischer Einrichtungen eine andere Architektursprache

choleric person, with a high amount of yellow bile which was hot and dry, would not go out of balance by consuming food which would increase too much coldness and wetness. Similarly, too much black bile, melancholy, could cause coagulations in anyone and the coagulations in their turn could become cysts. If things were terribly out of balance, these lumps could turn cancerous. This happened much too often. This chapter deals with early modern cancer, and the ways in which early modern people tried to make sense of the illness and understand what had brought the

4. Healing Beyond Reconstruction: Ampu-Narration in Audre Lorde’s The Cancer Journals In 2013, the American Cancer Society celebrated their hundredth anniversary, and it is safe to say that the conversation about breast cancer has changed. “Cancer… Dreaded, dreadful word, spoken in whispers when you were growing up, and sel- dom even whispered,” writes Terese Lasser in her 1972 memoir Reach to Recovery and describes breast cancer as a subject that “always brought a sad shaking of heads and a pity-filled pause in conversation” (18).

Similarly, in the 1980s, advocates for breast cancer awareness focused on research and cure agendas, but as breast cancer awareness advocacy gained broader public participation, many branches of the movement have tended toward a corporately-driven cast, with an emphasis on non-specific “awareness campaigns” (Ehrenreich 2009; Jain 2007; King 2004). The evolution of these patient movements

Certain social opinions, to which I myself belong, but which, although founded on a sacred principle, should not be allowed to inter fere with the impartiality of our judgment, have weighed heavily in the balance; and many young ar- dent, and enthusiastic minds of our day have reiterated with Börne that Goethe is the worst of despots; the cancer of the German body.
