Science. Believe it. – Cancer treatment has its own language. There is a mountain of information to digest and a spectrum of treatment regimens, depending on the specific diagnosis. The good news in all of that is the doctors, nurses and other health care professionals treating me are zeroed in on a specific course of action to attack my cancer.
If I’m destined to be a part of this wretched club, I’m grateful to be here now than at any time prior. I am in awe of the science and medical advances that have led to today’s treatments. Overall cancer mortality continues to decline, with a 33% decrease since 1991, according to the American Cancer Society. Though the goal of eradicating the disease still lies before us, strides continue to be made each day. “I’ve got to admit it’s getting better, a little better all the time.”

I’m taking a photo a day to help the American Cancer Society fight for a world without cancer. Like so many, I have known family and friends who’ve battled the disease, including some who continue to fight. This year, I find myself personally impacted, and it occurs to me that this platform offers a way to channel my passion for photography to help relay a personal journey that may resonate with others.
