Radon and Cancer

Pediatric Cancer

The Radon & Cancer Comic book was created in a partnership between YES and the Naive Indigenous Centers Education (NICE) program and the Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance. The comic book was illustrated by Elliana Sitting Eagle, a YES High School Club participant. The comic book and corresponding worksheets can be used to introduce the connection between radon and cancer.

A Native Perspective on Cancer

Under the mentorship of Dr. Joyce Solheim, Native American YES interns drew upon their imagination, experiences, and knowledge of cancer learned through the YES Program to create fictional cancer patients. The interns then invented short stories for the characters that portray their cancer risk factors, symptoms, and treatments, as well as how cancer impacts the lives of the patients and the people who love them.  Thanks to all these interns (Hayli Spellman, Promise Moore-Saufley, Mira Norman, and Carmela Rigatuso) for their contributions to these stories, and additional thanks to Hayli Spellman for illustrating and formatting the stories and for composing questions for linked worksheets
