walk through cancer
On February 6th, 2013 I was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer and began treatment one week later on Valentine's Day, documenting everything from just moments before my diagnosis.
The series that follows is a shared and on-going documentation with friend and fellow photographer Elizabeth Griffin of my life as a 28-year-old woman living through cancer. In walk through cancer, it is my hope to demystify, if only a little bit, the fears, misunderstandings and ill associations that surround illness. Because even in the darkest hours of my experience, I am not fighting a battle or trying to win a war. I am simply living moment to moment with cancer.
