Mom's Cancer: A Graphic Novel Review

Review by Scott Tingley - May 21, 2007

I picked up a copy of the Graphic Novel Mom's Cancer this weekend.

Three years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She got through that. Last week she was diagnosed with bone cancer. At this time we are not sure if there is cancer anywhere else in her body - there may be more.

Mom's Cancer has been a great help to me this weekend. Not a comfort - more of an eye opener / preparation for what is likely to come for my mom, and for the rest of my small immediate family. I needed this.

Mom's Cancer is the true tale of my mother's battle with metastatic lung cancer. The story describes how a serious illness affects patient and family, both practically and emotionally, in ways that I've discovered are very common. Many readers wrote to tell me how surprised and relieved they were to learn they weren't alone. Brian Fies author/illustrator of Mom's Cancer.

Buy it, borrow it, or get it from the library like I did. If there is cancer around you I think you should read this. The content is honest and truthful horrible and hopeful. I believe that this is suitable for High School libraries and for readers 13+ .

This is the only ordering information I could find online.

Visit the Mom's Cancer website HERE.

Thank you Brian Fies.
