Kimiko Does Cancer by Kimiko Tobimatsu and illustrated by Keet Geniza
Kimiko Does Cancer is a graphic memoir that upends the traditional cancer narrative from the perspective of a young, queer, mixed-race woman, confronting issues such as dating while in induced menopause, navigating work and treatment, and talking to well-meaning friends, health care professionals and other cancer survivors with viewpoints different from her own.
Honest and poignant, Kimiko Does Cancer is about finding one's own way out of a health crisis.
'Beautifully drawn and candidly told. Kimiko lead us, with openness and vulnerability, on a cancer journey focused less on survival and more on how best to live while staying true to herself' Teresa Wong
