About this show

Chemo Barbie is an inspiring story told with painful honesty, comedic charm, and tearjerking dignity that takes you into the mind of a cancer patient from diagnosis to treatment. Artist Heather Keller shows what a patient goes through from doctor meetings, testing, treatments, and people's reactions around them. It shows the strength and support that develops with some friends and family while others shy away or leave altogether. Crafted from Heather's handwritten journals, videos, texts, emails, storytelling, and an online chronicling 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 normal as possible.
