Comics Fighting Cancer.. You are the hero, of your own story
I would like to raise funds to put Perry Winkle into print. So i can distribute to various hospitals, cancer charities, help centres, to help other cancer patients.
And also to have a site, maintained and designed by professionals, so we can have all cancer information at hand.
I have had some good feedback about Perry Winkle and would like to help other, find their inner superhero.
It helped me through my cancer journey and i would love for it help someone else too.
Spread awareness of Lymphoma and its symptoms etc. It tends to affect the under 30's and i hadn't even heard of it, until i got it. Needs to get out there.
In addition to distributing, i would like to sell some printed editions, with 20% of any future sales, going to charity.
Small bit about me
Susie Gander started out as all aspiring artists do, fingerprinting from the age of 3 !! Some many years later, then went on to achieve an art degree at university.
Then life threw her a curveball – Cancer. Hodgkins Lymphoma.
During treatment Susie documented her experience in a comic book format, simply to help her cope. Essentially off her mind, onto paper. After sharing it with other patients, it became clear, it helped them too.
Susie became too ill toward the end of treatment and needed to put Perry Winkle on pause.
Now she is in remission and finishing Perry Winkle, will the intention to help others in treatment and share the awareness of Lymphoma.
Since then, Susie has run several charity events, including the popular “Pimp your Profile Pic” on Facebook, which involved’cartoon-i-fi-ing’ any donaters profile pictures.
Risks and challenges
IF and only IF my cancer comes back, it may put things on hold. I am positive it wont. I am in remission for nearly 2 years now. If thats the case, i may commission other artists to do guest pages.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
