This striking watercolor painting depicts the axillary lymph nodes, which act as filters for the lymphatic system and help fight illness with their stock of white blood cells. If breast cancer begins to spread, the axillary lymph nodes are the first place it is likely to travel. Biopsies of these nodes help to determine breast cancer stage and helps to guide treatment. The dark palette of this watercolor lends to the significance of this structure in the devastation that is breast cancer.
This print is perfect for Oncologists, Immunologists or as a commemorative piece for someone suffering through or in remission from their battle with cancer.
