WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Chemo Barbie is an inspiring story told with painful honesty, comedic charm, and tear-jerking dignity that takes viewers into the mind of a cancer patient from diagnosis to treatment. Artist Heather Keller shows what a patient goes through from doctor meetings to testing to treatments to people's reactions. Chemo Barbie shows the strength and support that develops with some friends and family while others shy away or leave altogether. Crafted from Keller's handwritten journals, videos, texts, e-mails, storytelling, and an online chronicle of her experience, Chemo Barbie is a show spoken and performed from the heart that tells the gritty, funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting journey of a young woman conquering cancer while living life as normally as possible.
