Working on bringing a smile to the face of each child battling cancer.

Kid Keemo and the Med Gown Gang are characters that were created to entertain children as they undergo treatment for cancer.

Kid Keemo was dreamed of as a way to cheer up my nephew, Sean, during his battle with childhood cancer. Kid Keemo was actually the nickname I gave Sean as he underwent chemotherapy. We would joke that one day Kid Keemo would travel the world touring with Kid Rock...or possibly Motley Crue...or maybe even Rick Springfield as a very last resort. Sadly, Sean passed away in 2007 after a long struggle with cancer, just one month shy of his 17th birthday. Since then I have worked on this project in the hopes that all kids with cancer can have a heroic character to identify with as they undergo the challenges of chemotherapy.
