Nowadays, pretty much anyone has a story of cancer in a nearby relative or friend. It is no longer an unfortuitous event for some, but a rather common place for most. That does not, however, in any way, make this disease easier to bear. On the contrary, we are more and more bewildered by the tragic effects and recurrence of it in our lives.
Today I was moved by one man's support for his wife's battle against breast cancer. He photographed their struggle fighting the disease, a fight which was eventually lost in December of 2011. I was moved by Angelo's love for Jeniffer and also by the love movement he started by being by her side, fighting with her and showing their story. By sharing their lives not only did they receive massive support, but also helped humanize the face of cancer and bring more awareness to struggle faced by patients.
You can see Angelo's beautiful pictures on My Wife's Fight With Breast Cancer and see how he continues to tell Jeniffer's story to the world, even after she's gone.
