Rachel Oliver was already a published cartoonist and book author when she got diagnosed with consecutive breast cancers and then colon cancer. She now helps others cope with cancer through her cartoons and by sharing her amazing story with her unique sense of humour.
Rachel Oliver is motivational speaker who uses her sense of humour and her experience surviving a brain injury and then cancer to explore recovery and its multiple challenges.
Her talks are an inspiration to
both patients and health
Rachel spent many months recovering first from her accident and then from cancer. Cartooning was a way to deal with each new challenge. Her cartoons serve as a step by step guide to coping with each stage, maintaining a positive attitude, and making her own choices.
Rachel’s sense of humour extends beyond horses and her own experiences with her recovery and the health system. She has developed a number of strips and panels that are available for use in various publications. Click below to see a sampling of her cartoons..
