A Real Life Love Story

It’s no secret that I am a sucker for a good love story. I normally have to get my fix of love from movies or television (Like the movie Ghost or Scandal please don’t judge me I love Liv and Fitz). It’s not everyday that a true love story happens and catches my attention. Well today, one did. and I couldn’t resist the urge to share this photo journey of love, loss and courage.

“The first time photographer Angelo Merendino met Jennifer, he knew she was the one. They fell in love and got married in New York’s Central Park, surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. Five months later Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer. From Angelo’s blog: “I remember the exact moment…Jen’s voice and the numb feeling that enveloped me. That feeling has never left. I’ll also never forget how we looked into each other’s eyes and held each other’s hands. ‘We are together, we’ll be ok.’” Throughout her battle, Angelo decided to photograph it. He wanted to humanize  the face of cancer on the face of his wife. The photos speak for themselves.”  *article credit goes to ViralNova.Com/Wifes-Cancer

It was at the third to last photo that I broke down and cried. The monster that is cancer affects everyone in it’s path. This is a truly inspiring photo journey. For more on Angelo and Jennifer visit
