Each year, approximately 1.5 million people in the United States and Canada are diagnosed with cancer. This is one family''s story.

Winner of the 2005 Eisner Award in the category of Best Digital Comic for the original Web version, Mom''s Cancer is now available as a graphic novel. An honest, unflinching, and sometimes humorous look at the practical and emotional effect that serious illness can have on patients and their families, Mom''s Cancer is a story of hope-uniquely told in words and illustrations.

Brian Fies is a freelance journalist whose mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. As he and his two sisters struggled with the effects of her illness and her ongoing recovery from treatment, Brian processed the experience in his journal, which took the form of words and pictures.

The story that came to be known as "Mom''s Cancer" first gained notice on the internet. It was posted anonymously, with the intention of sharing information and insights gained from his family''s experience. Thanks to the words and illustrations of Brian Fies, readers have already responded that they were surprised and gratified to realize that they weren''t alone. Abrams ComicArts is proud to bring this story to a whole new audience.
BRIAN FIES is a writer and cartoonist who lives in Northern California with his wife, twin teenage daughters, and three cats. Mom''s Cancer is his first graphic novel. For updates on his latest graphic novel, Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow?, visit
