Cancer patient creates coloring book

About the solution

Kim, a senior innovator from Nike, had the help of Nike designer Mark Smith to do the illustrations, while she was undergoing chemo, because the patient needed to have something that could satisfy her short attention span.

“It’s ok to laugh and say, ‘You have cancer and it’s going to be okay,’” Kim said. She is now in complete remission.

The book is filled with puzzles, mazes, and ‘Find the Lump’ word searches.

Together they launched, in 2015, a kickstarter campaign with a goal of $15,000, which will get 1,000 books into cancer centers across USA.

The book can be bought at Amazon, and costs 9.99 USD.
