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.
