Broadway actress and mom Karen Walsh is currently undergoing chemotherapy for stage IV colon cancer. However, she’s found a great way to put a positive spin on her situation—cosplay.
Speaking to Buzzfeed, Karen explained that the idea started when her friend, Broadway director and choreographer Sam Pinkleton, visited. They got “creative while the infusion was working it’s way in” and from that point on, more friends came with their ideas and costumes.
The result is a series of cosplays that are inspiring and fun. As an ambassador for the American Cancer Society, Karen hopes they’ll also remind people about the importance of colon cancer screenings. We really hope that these cosplays will continue without the chemo one day very very soon. Check out more of her photos below.
