Daring Series Turns Famous Cartoon Characters Into Breast Cancer Survivors


As this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to an end, Italian artist AleXsandro Palombo is here to remind us all that the quest to raise awareness for the disease extends far past October. On Monday, Palombo, who made headlines for creating a series where he gave Disney princesses disabilities, released a set of drawings he calls “SURVIVOR,” where he imagines famous cartoon characters as breast cancer survivors.

The series (below) features Disney princesses like Cinderella, Arielle and Tiana and female cartoons like Marge Simpson, Betty Boop and Wilma Flintstone as women who have underwent single and double mastectomies to survive breast cancer.

Palombo told Metro UK that the new series is “a powerful reflection on the disease, mastectomy and its effects, female identity and acceptance.”

Take a look at a few illustrations below, and visit Palombo’s website to view the entire series.
