The Bloodwise Ambassadors are celebrating the launch of the #MakeBloodCancerVisible campaign as part of the blood cancer community’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness of blood cancer.
The exhibition is in Paternoster Square by St. Paul’s and is going on throughout September for Blood Cancer Awareness Month. If you get a chance do go and visit and encourage friends and family to do the same.
Over the last few days, we have done a lot of background on the Perry Winkle Comic website, to make it faster and more effective.
Perry Winkle is extremely image heavy and i understand it ran rather slowly for some users. This should now have improved. If you are still having problems, please do let me know, as we are now using a service.
On this note, to help cover the additional costs for the website, i have created a Patreon, if you would be interested in signing up, for as little as $1 (77p), where you can get access to sketches, works in progress etc, earlier then anyone else. Plus a chance to win a monthly original sketch.
On #InternationalWomensDay, we’re celebrating female physician Dorothy Reed, who had a major influence on the classification of classical Hodgkin lymphoma.
Dr Thomas Hodgkin first described Hodgkin lymphoma in 1832. Some years later Dorothy Reed, along with Carl Sternberg, confirmed that the presence of specific cells indicate classical Hodgkin lymphoma. These cells have a characteristic appearance of ‘owl eyes’ and are now known as Reed–Sternberg cells.
Highly recommend listening to the boys other issues. They are very funny, touching and can learn so much about the comic book world from these guys.
“Comics are a powerful medium and in the right hands can truly help people through tough times. The Awesome Pod crew are joined this week by Susie Gander, whose brilliant semi-autobiographical comic Perry Winkle not only helped her as she battled cancer, but is helping others too. She’s also got the same sense of humour as the ACP gang, so there are crazy jokes and laughs flying in all directions! It’s a brilliant conversation that you come to expect from the show, informative, educational and stocked full of ridiculous chuckles. Plus theres an added bonus of two hilarious out takes from Dans dictionary corner. Dont miss it!”
So today this post comes to you typing with one hand.
