Whoa. Seriously powerful.
Such an awful disease. Hope for a cure everyday
Wow. She was born a few months after me. Truly amazing photos. Horrific, but amazing. I'm going to go hold my wife.
The black and white photos are so stark. Heavy subject.
The 2 in the middle with the people staring must be one of the worst parts. I'd imagine the end is the most peaceful, I would have come to an acceptance by then.
Fascinating yet painfully heart-wrenching.
It should be named "Stages of Terminal Cancer". As someone who has stage four pancreatic cancer, it was difficult to look at. But what a very loving photo essay that shows the love that is around to share in life until the end. There is so much love on those photos. The love that comes out when one is given a cancer diagnosis is beyond description. The impact of it is beyond description. It's power is beyond description.
Cancer is such a huge fear that we all have. It is really important to know that when you hear the word cancer, it does not mean death. I really believe, from my experience this past year, that people below the age of twenty will be one of the last generations that will make the association of the word cancer with death. The word cancer is a catch all term for many diseases and disorders. It is remarkable, and encouraging, to see how treatable and curable so many cancers are today. So many new treatments are either in clinical trials or about to be marketed. It is so encouraging. So much so, that as I looked at the pictures, I really thought we would see the turn around and health restored.
So sad to see such a beautiful young girl lose her life to this tragic disease. If she is a family member or friend of the OP, my sincerest sympathies go to you and those around you. It is such a difficult journey for her and for those around her. I hope the ride on the other side is a better one for that lovely girl.
That's just knocked the wind out of me.
Whoa. Terrible...but in the end to be so lucky to say "I Loved It All"...what a spirit.
Reminds me so much of when I was laid off in 2009. I did some volunteer work at a local hospital seeing to cancer patients needs. Met some incredable people there who, despite what they were going thru had such a great outlook. I'll never forget one couple in particular, Rick and Sue. Sue had cancer, was going thru chemo and lost all of her hair. They next day when they came in for Sue's treatment, Rick had shaved his head bald. I knew why he did it but still, when I looked at him and said a quiet "wow" he pointed to Sue's head, pointed to his and said "we're a team."
What a loving gesture.
Chastening, humbling, perspective giving.
Thank you for posting and good thoughts to those who need them.
