While “Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, love leaves a memory that no one can steal”. These words are from a headstone in Ireland.
Living a full life and being lovedㅡthese are two of the most beautiful things in life. We know that death is inevitable. The death of a loved one always leaves a hole and space in our hearts, but their memories live in our hearts forever.
Photographer Angelo Merendino’s girlfriend Jennifer was diagnosed with cancer, which eventually took her life.
The battle with cancer is never easy. It is painful not only for the patient but for their friends and family as they see their loved ones slowly fading away. Regardless, some people are so brave they take it on with a smile as if to say “I’m going to truly live to the fullest as long as I am alive. And no cancer can take that away from me.” Jennifer was that kind of person.
Through his camera lens, Angelo captured Jennifer’s journey with cancer till the end.
