Words from Bill Aron who photographed 120 cancer Survivors

Their strength was based in a belief that they could overcome the obstacles, and that their fate was in their own hands.  They did not necessarily think of themselves as being cured but they felt that they were going to do everything possible to make the most out of whatever time they had left.

During my interviews and photography sessions with 120 cancer survivors, ages 15 months through 99 years, I identified four stages of cancer: the Terror of the diagnosis, the Agony of the treatment, the Silent phases and the Knowing that there will be a new beginning; a new normal. This book is about the 3rd and 4th stage.
