Free Comic Books for Cancer Patients

Your initial reaction may be something like “What's comical or even mildly comedic about a deadly disease?” 

If that’s your reaction, you need to read Terminally Illini” which their Facebook page claim’s is “The World’s Awesomest Cancer comic Book.”

I agree with that claim.

Written Kaylin Marie and Jon Solo the comic book the book gives you a terrific millennial-eye view of the horrors of battling Stage IV cancer. Here’s a link to my earlier review:

 Now here’s even better good news: they are giving away thousands (thousands!) of copies free (FREE!) if

  • “You have ever battled cancer.
  • You are sending it to someone who has cancer now.
  • You are sending it to a cancer center or hospital as a resource for patients.”

How great is that?

Here’s my request to you: please find a way to get this comic book into the hands of folks who need it; are yearning to hear from somebody their age who are in the battle of their life for their life.

“Terminally Illini’ is not for everybody. As I’ve previously written, “Chaos in Humanhattan - is a scary, cynical, irreverent, twenty-something, mash-up of a memoir, a ”chemo-induced ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story and a “campy ‘Hollywood’ action adventure” graphic novel that focuses on the Kaylin Andres and her Ewing Sarcoma cancer battles.” 

If that description scares you or makes you scrunch your forehead, move on.

If, however, this description resonates with you or just might resonate with a loved one that is going through the same horrible, nasty, gut-wrenching, debilitating grind of chemo treatments and their consequences, give it a try. All it will cost you is postage.

But what it just might give you, or somebody you love, is priceless.
