GENIE THE GENE is on a mission to help kids

Genie helps kids by taking them on memorable adventures in which they learn, through experience, important details on a wide array of subject matter. With Genie as your friendly and energetic guide, information shown in these story-based adventures are more fun and better retained than most educational material.

In the comic mini-series we see how Genie becomes friends with Doctor Sally Miles, and how they get started together in their mission to help kids (as Genie the Gene) by tackling the genetic condition, Cystic Fibrosis. You can read all three comics online right here on GenietheGene.com!

Comic stories are available FREE, by clicking HERE.

In the coming months look for comics, videos, and interactive content, where kids can click-in and be taken on adventures with Genie the Gene to help them better understand Cystic Fibrosis.

BOOMER ESIASON and LEE BECKER have a long history of battling cystic fibrosis through their dedication and work at the Boomer Esiason Foundation
