In this day and age, I assume most people know what cancer is.
This debilitating and life-threatening disease can cause great physical, emotional, and psychological effects. To anticipate the pain and to know that your life now hangs in a balance—imagine how difficult that must be for them to accept that. No one else will truly understand the fears and the pain but the patient alone, and, of course, those who were fortunate to survive the battle.
Photographer Angelo Merindino discovered that his wife, Jennifer has cancer. So he decided to document (with her consent) her battle against the disease. The results of her photographic story, as captured by Angelo, were so captivating and moving.
The series of compelling pictures below allows us to see Jennifer’s every day struggles as she deals with cancer and the side effects of treatment.
Look at these remarkable yet haunting pictures:
According to Angelo, “It’s not an easy picture to see, but it’s worth sharing.”
Angelo Merindino wrote in his blog:
“By sharing our story, our love story, something wonderful has begun to grow out of something so horrible and unfair. If we don’t share our experiences how can we learn, grow, and survive?’
Many women who are suffering from cancer connected with Angelo after he published these pictures in his website.
Anyone who has a friend, relative, or loved one who has cancer can probably relate to these images. Let’s support them any way we can.

This Father's day, we celebrate the nobility, hard work, and perseverance of our dads who would go up to the moon and back just to provide a better life for us. But, we would also celebrate the selflessness, strength, and sacrifices of all the single moms out there who try or have also tried to be the best father to her kids....
Isn’t This Octopus Adorable? Scientists Might Just Name it “Adorabilis”
From time to time, we encounter adorable creatures from the ocean. This little octopus which looks like a cross between a Pokemon creature and Pac-Man is now making waves on the Internet and may potentially earn the name “Adorabilis” for its obvious cuteness.
Since 1990, specimens of this type of octopus have been collected but remained unnamed. Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral fellow at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research, is planning to use Opisthoteuthis adorabilis as the cute little fella’s scientific name.
Speaking to Science, Bush said: "One of the thoughts I had was making it Opisthoteuthis Adorabilis -- because they're really cute.”...
