The statue reminds me of Greece and of my family. All my family was and still is in Greece. When I had my breast cancer, I decided to spare them the news because back then they thought if you had an illness such as cancer, you were as good as dead. I now know that I did not have the right to make a decision for my family. Maybe they would have thought differently, and maybe I would not have had to bear my cross alone.
