About the Artist

Kevin McCalla became passionate about storytelling, specifically comic books, at a young age. Diagnosed with cystinosis at 13 months, Kevin translated his cystinosis experience into a relatable, enjoyable, and educational resource. “With these short comics I hope to utilize the unique strengths of comics to engage the cystinosis community – patients of all ages, doctors, caregivers, social workers, and anyone who is interested.” – Kevin McCalla
