mother was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer.
I made a comic strip
Cancer is the true tale of my mother's battle with metastatic
lung cancer. The story focuses on 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 gratified they were to learn they weren't alone.

In July 2005, Mom's Cancer won the comic industry's
this year. The award is a great honor
and I'm very
grateful. Click "The Eisner Awards" button

during the enormous Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Spring 2006, Abrams Books
will publish a hardcover edition of Mom's
, which will be available in bookstores everywhere. My editor
and I are working hard to create a book that I think will be really
different and special. Unfortunately, as a result, Mom's Cancer
no longer available online. However, if you previously asked permission
to use it for educational purposes OR you are facing a similar challenge
yourself and think Mom's Cancer
might help, please contact me at:
