The Battle We Didn’t Choose: Husband Captures Wife’s Fight With Breast Cancer

Angelo Merendino fell in love with Jennifer and got married in New York’s Central Park, surrounded by their loved ones. Five months later, Jen was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

“I remember the exact moment,” Angelo said. “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.'”

Throughout her battle, the first time photographer wanted to humanize the face of cancer, capturing all the difficulty, pain and fear they experienced together.

“These photographs do not define us, but they are us,” Angelo said.
