“Love every morsel of the people in your life.” – Jennifer Merendino
Sadly, most people do not want to hear these realities and at certain points we felt our support fading away. Other cancer survivors share this loss. People assume that treatment makes you better, that things become OK, that life goes back to “normal.” However, there is no normal in cancer-land. Cancer survivors have to define a new sense of normal, often daily. And how can others understand what we had to live with everyday? – Angelo Merendino
I thought I bit about whether to post this story or not. After all, a photo project about someone’s wife fighting breast cancer isn’t very happy-go-lucky. But I decided to go for it anyway … because it is inspiring and shows the strength of love, of people’s faith and their ability to fight against all odds.
Jennifer Merendino was the wife of photographer Angelo Merendino. Shortly after their marriage she was diagnosed with breast cancer. They fought it with chemotherapy and mastectomy. But then the cancer relapsed, metastasized and Jennifer lost the battle. Her husband was with her through the whole time and started to document her fight with his camera and published Jennifer and his story in the book „The battle we didn’t choose. My wife’s fight with breath cancer“ – a testimony that love is bigger than everything and that inspiring people stay with us forever. Even if they aren’t on this planet anymore. Watch also this film.
I wish you an inspiring weekend with the people you love arround you!
