Kids' cancer explained in colourful comic
In 2016, The Kids’ Cancer Project and Medikidz collaborated to launch an Australian-first educational comic book designed to take the mystery out of medical information related to childhood cancer.
The book explains cancer and its treatment through the real life story of Alex La Rossa who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at 13 years of age. He beat it in June 2015, but not before 16 months of chemotherapy and two hip replacements due to steroid treatments that damaged the blood supply to his joints.
The book was reviewed by Oncology Specialist Dr Luciano Dalla-Pozza, Department Head and a Senior Staff Specialist of the Cancer Centre for Children at The Children's Hospital at Westmead and supported by the Paul Newman Foundation.
