In the webcomic and graphic novel, Mom’s Cancer, Brian Fies told the story of his mother’s diagnosis and treatment for cancer, and its effect on his family. The story won the comics industry's Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic, the Harvey Award, and the German Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (Youth Literature Prize) and became a pioneering work in the new field of “graphic medicine.” Brian will talk about why and how he created "Mom’s Cancer," and the wider social communities he’s entered as a result.
