The Terminally Illin’ Comic Book Stands Up to Cancer

Kaylin Andres was diagnosed with cancer in her 20s; instead of considering herself a victim, she found a kickass way to fight back with her Terminally Illin’ Comic book. Teaming up with Jon Solo, Andres makes it so that the comic is not only an adventure of a cancer survivor, but also an educational endeavor that seeks to inform youth of cancer facts and how it affects people. Travelling into the subway, the reader will come across all the anatomical make-ups of cancer, including white blood cells and other molecules.

Fighting back against the "Evil Nazi Cancer Cells,” Andres and Solos' book is a great new medium for education and enjoyment. Currently running a campaign to get funds to continue their expedition through the sketched world of cancer, the duo is looking to raise some funds to put out another book.
