FOTO Lupta pe care n-au ales-o


Un fotograf american a documentat lupta soției sale cu cancerul, în încercarea de a umaniza cumplita boală, de a arăta provocarea, dificultățile, frica, tristețea și singurătatea. Angelo Merendino a făcut o selecție de fotografii emoționante care spun povestea lor de dragoste în timpurile grele ale luptei cu cancerul. El a creat un site pentru asta și și-a intitulat povestea “Lupta pe care n-am ales-o”.

Recently hospitalized because of excruciating pain in her hip, Jen yearns for relief from her pain medication.


While hospitalized, Jen asked me to bring our clippers from home and shave her head, since chemotherapy was causing her hair to fall out.

  2. Am trait-o , am patit-o…. fara cuvinte…pentru ce sa luptam … daca nu ne ajuta nimeni,,,, nici macar Dumnezeu in lupta asta… Mai bine roll the dice and play it off pana la capat. BAFTA

  3. Trist si impresionant cum oamenii se omoara unii pe altii, in special prin “otravurile” din alimente. Dezumanizarea societatii duce la astfel de cazuri..
