As tragic as breast cancer is, the photos taken at every stage in Jennifer’s battle with the disease reveals the bond that two people share and the human spirit during times of trial. It was only five months into their marriage when the two found out Jen had been diagnosed with breast cancer. In Angelo’s blog, he states that though support for breast cancer was present, the day-to-day struggles never went away nor did the financial battles with insurance companies.

Here are the photographs in the daily life of Jen, diagnosed with breast cancer facing the difficulty, fear, sadness and loneliness together with her brave husband.
