me & my mission -
Hi there and thanks for visiting my website.
My name’s Jarrod Knight and I’m an author, cartoonist and artist who lives on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
As a child, when I was 13 years old I was diagnosed with bone cancer. So I know what it’s like for a child to spend long periods of time in hospital surrounded by illness, doctors, nurses and sit each day in an atmosphere that can be a bit dull and not really that much fun.
Now as a healthy adult, I work with sick kids helping them have fun and
maintain a positive and creative focus as they go through an experience similar
to the one I went through as a boy. It is so important for someone to remain not just positive, but to also be productive and have some fun because after all, they are kids, and all kids deserve to have fun and enjoy their childhood.
I have worked with Camp Quality, Queensland Cancer Council and the
Starlight Foundation conducting cartoon workshops, visiting hospitals to draw
with the kids and creating resources so that the kids can continue to create and
have fun when they are alone sitting in their hospital beds.
I did this part time, at my own expense and just locally. It is my goal and dream to be able to do this full time and help even more children not just in my area, but Australia wide, and even worldwide.
