Critical Care Comics is a Las Vegas based non-profit that works to help kids and their families in the community that are struggling with various medical ailments, especially cancer. While our volunteers dress up as superheroes, the real heroes are those fighting these battles every day. Over the last 10 years, we have expanded our efforts to include costumed hospital visits, donations to medical facilities and research, and now, establishing a scholarship for cancer survivors to pursue higher education.
