Husband Photographs Each Stage of His Wife’s Battle With Breast Cancer

Angelo Merendino felt like the luckiest man in the world when he married the love of his life, Jennifer. However, their life took a sudden change when just 5 months after their wedding Jennifer was diagnosed with breast cancer. Angelo, who happens to be a photographer, documented the stages of his wife’s fight with cancer in a moving collection of photographs entitled The Battle We Didn’t Choose.

Angelo has presented his collection of images into a digital book available for purchase here. Fifty percent of the net profits from sales of the book will be donated to The Love You Share, his non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to cancer patients in need while they are receiving treatment.
