As a photographer, it is quite important to capture the practical side of a picture and truth of a situation. It becomes too easy to capture the moment of joy or a joyful life while neglecting the torture, but it becomes the hardest when a father (photographer) decides to capture the searing pain his daughter is bearing.
This is what a brave father did. He shares a disturbing picture of his daughter battling cancer, in order to portray her sad circumstances and to tell the world the shocking truth of childhood cancer.
Jessica Whelan of England was diagnosed with high-risk stage 4 neuroblastoma in September 2015.
Andy is a photographer, and he captured a harrowing picture of her daughter to chronicle her battle.
The condition of Jessica became too critical, and doctors said that she had just weeks to live.
...he decided to share the picture of his child that writhes in agony to show the world the true face of cancer.
"This is the true face of cancer, my baby girl's blood vessels protruding from beneath her skin, a solitary tear running down her cheek, her body stiffened and her face contorted in pain."
"We are really struggling, and it's hard to know that we're going to lose our daughter. We have been told it is going to be a couple of weeks and every day we take as the last."
The image showcases the small girl wincing in pain, a single tear streaming down her face.
The girl was fighting, and the parents were trying to raise the awareness about the childhood cancer.
