Kimiko Does Cancer

Kimiko Tobimatsu

Nonfiction Memoir 2020 | 101 pages


At the tender age of twenty-five, Kimiko is diagnosed with breast cancer.  This graphic memoir explores what she encounters as a mixed-race, young, queer woman, but I found its real value in how she explores life after treatment.  If you have had cancer, or know someone who has, this beautifully illustrated novel will offer insight into what happens for months and perhpas years after treatment is complete.  It will take you about 30 minutes to read and is absolutely worth your time.
