In Dec 2015 i was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. This was such a shock, i knew i had been unwell, but didnt think it would be this. I didnt have time for fertitily options and had to go straight into chemo. One of the lumps, was right underneath a blood clot that had formed in the main jugular vein on my neck.
I had 12 chemo sessions and I am super happy to say that I am in remission. I have made some amazing friends on numerous support sites and enjoy being part of the club. These people are so incredible and inspirational. All pushing each other to fight.
I wanted to give something back, but i am not good with words. I love art and have always enjoyed comics. So during treatment, i decided to draw a comic. This was based on my own experiences and also the internal superhero pushing me along.
I shared this on the support pages and others explain how it helped them also. So i would love to share and hope that this is also helpful to you all.
It's primarly on Facebook at the moment, but a website is in production (perrywinkle.com) Some of my earlier pages done during treatment are understandably a bit messy. So I am going back and redoing them with the intention to print them eventually and distribute to support groups etc. Hopefully this should also raise some money for charities at MCM Comic Con next year.
I became rather weak toward the end of treatment but have improved since May this year and have now really picked it up again to complete.
Thank you so much for listening to my story and I hope you like the comic!
I adore receiving fan art, every piece recieved is framed and on my living room wall.
Please share it to help raise awareness.
