Magazine editor apologizes for mocking cancer survivor Published: March 27, 2014

When a cancer survivor was contacted by Self magazine asking to use her photo, she never expected to be mocked, according to USA TODAY.

Monika Allen was wearing a tutu when she ran last year's LA Marathon — she was dressed as Wonder Woman — for her first marathon running with brain cancer. The race fell in the middle of chemotherapy and she says the outfit gave her motivation.

Allen makes these tutus for her company, Glam Runners, which donates money to charity. So when Self contacted her about the photo she was thrilled about the publicity opportunity.
