This body of work explores the scarring and complexity of emotions once a diagnosis of cancer is given. 


Scarring is both physical and emotional to those with cancer, but cancer also scars family and friends. Feelings of raging anger, pain, denial, anxiety, fear, depression, hope and sometimes even joy are the battle scars of confronting cancer.
