    I wrote this poem in my sleep... You didn't know I was there, I'd been there a while. My name is Cancer, I hid deep inside spreading like a wildflower, a thorn in your side. I sit and wait as you douse me with pain. The fight is on, battle after battle, who will will win the answer remains. I know who will win and it will be ME! This was shot in B&W with natural lighting.

    There are many reasons to favorite your powerful portrait — but what I really love is how it has connected with our global community, like Your Shot photographer Yaron Schmid, who commented, "GREAT photo from an AMAZING human being (and an awesome photographer!). It's almost the perfect shot, the only thing that is missing is you being healthy again, but that's just around the corner. You really reached deep into the audience's hearts with this one. You even made me tear... Sending a big hug..."
