Laughter is the best medicine
“This graphic novel handbook is sure to help anyone new to Cancer or even those going through it again. Federico takes the scary and strange realities of having cancer makes them hysterical and moves on to healing the mind, soul and body. The art work makes it especially unique in the world of books about cancer. Anyone who has cancer, had it, caregivers or friends ( just about anyone) should read this book. And it wouldn’t be bad if some doctors or medical staff read it and remembered to keep their sense of humor.”
