Chemo Girl is the fictional tale of a superhero created by Christina R ichmond who was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of muscle cancer, when she was in the seventh grade. She was only 12 years old. During her many hospitalizations, she developed the concept of Chemo Girl to help her cope with the chemotherapy treatments. She wrote Chem o Girl, not only to help herself, but to help other children in simila r situations. She saw Chemo Girl as an educational tool for children a nd adults, both healthy and ill. The idea was to teach a positive, non -threatening side of chemotherapy and to realize thereFs always hope.
