“I loved it all.” — Jennifer Merendino
Have you seen Angelo Merendino’s photo essay chronicling his wife’s battle with breast cancer? It was posted on Reddit and went viral. It’s been featured in the New Yorker, Huffington Post, CNN, etc.
The first time I saw it, I viewed it on my iPad. The mobile presentation allowed for scrolling through the crisis in chronological order, photo by photo. I gasped when I got to the end and realized the woman’s name was Jennifer.

One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. More statistics and information on the breast cancer website: http://www.breastcancer.org.
