Chicago artist Krystal DiFronzo was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma - a cancer of the blood - last August. Like all cancer suffers, she had to deal with a lot of worry and heartbreak, but found an unlikely aid in the Nintendo 3DS title Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

DiFronzo has created a series - called Chemo Comics - where she details her experiences with cancer and its treatment. You can view the Animal Crossing one below.

The entire collection of comics will be published as The Good Hodgkins, which DiFronzo intends to release at Chicago Alternative Comics Expo in June.

Thankfully DiFronzo completed her treatment in January. You can follow her Tumblr here.
