About the solution

The story Frimer tells in Nistar pulls scenes from her own life. Only a couple of months after she and her childhood sweetheart, Yaakov, became engaged, Yaakov was diagnosed when he was 19 with Ewing’s sarcoma, a pediatric bone cancer. Two years later, the couple had twins. Frimer's husband, however, died when he was 24.
“Children affected by cancer are forced to contend with a noxious villain. They need relief from the emotional distress that comes with illness,” the artist tells ISRAEL21c in an interview in her Rehovot clinic.
“I try to empower them, to encourage them to visualize themselves as heroes, to emphasize the part of their lives they can control. The one thing cancer can’t touch is their imagination, the freedom to create.”
“A sequel is also spinning in my head,” she says. “My twins, now 16, read the book and posed a lot of questions. A film is also a possibility".

关于发明者

Shira Frimer, born in 1976, in Israel, created Dr. JJ Barak, a superhero starring in her Nistar graphic adventure novel, to help children deal with cancer.
It's been ten years since Frimer first published Nistar "Hidden", her debut graphic adventure novel for kids with cancer. The books are based on the author's personal experience with cancer, her knowledge of Jewish and kabalistic sources, and her love of comic books.
