Today, I’m going to tell you the story of Jennifer and Angelo. These two people have fallen madly in love and were later married in New York, in Central Park. The ceremony was beautiful and happy, surrounded by their families and friends. All went well, but 4 months later, the news came.
Cancer as a witness of marriage
On the blog of Angelo, we can discover his testimony : ” I remember perfectly the moment when we learned the news. The voice of Jennifer, and this feeling of numbness that I was overwhelmed. This impression has never left me. I will never forget either how we looked at each other in silence, holding hands. We’re together, everything will be fine “.
This was 4 months after the wedding, Jennifer learned of the diagnosis, a breast cancer in an advanced stage. The sentence is strong, Angelo decided to photograph Jennifer from this day and to deliver their battle against cancer. It shows what looks like cancer through this series of photographs, through his wife.
The cancer exists, fight it.
This story is one among many others. What you see is reality, this reality as it is experienced by patients, their loved ones.
The physical transformation that one can guess on the photos can give you an overview of this disease. Having worked in my former department, I found perfectly the change in facial characteristic over time. From the state of your skin graying, loss of weight, the hair that will eventually fall off, the face tired and bloated by the steroids.
It is also may be the time to get up there now and go spend some time with your loved ones. Not ?
If you want to know more about Angelo, he decided to start an association to help women in their fight against breast cancer.
