A Husband’s Farewell To His Dying Wife [PICTURES]
I sat here and tried to think of how to introduce this story. I struggled because I don’t know the right words to say. Or how to say it. This story gave me the chills.
Angelo found out that his wife had terminal cancer. He wanted to do something special for her. So he took these pictures to show not only the ‘face of cancer’, but to prove that those pictures were as real as his love for her was.
From Angelo’s blog:
I remember the exact moment…Jen’s voice and the numb feeling that enveloped me. That feeling has never left. I’ll also never forget how we looked into each other’s eyes and held each other’s hands. ‘We are together, we’ll be ok.’
My photographs show this daily life. They humanize the face of cancer, on the face of my wife. They show the challenge, difficulty, fear, sadness and loneliness that we faced, that Jennifer faced, as she battled this disease. Most important of all, they show our Love. These photographs do not define us, but they are us.
