Cancer Connections Offers Comfort and Grace Through Photography

Today I would like to share with you news about Cancer Connections a photo exhibit launched on May 20 at Nathan Phillips Square with 300 black-and-white photographs by Canadians each with a story to tell about cancer. The idea was conceived by Andrew Stawicki, co-founder of Photo-Sensitive, and was put together in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society. The exhibit is dedicated to June Callwood, who died of cancer in 2007.

There was an excellent article in The Toronto Star, on Saturday May 17 written by Francine Kopun featuring powerful photographs and their stories of strength, dignity and survival. The article reported that the plan is to bring the exhibit to 10 Canadian cities ending in Ottawa in 2010 with 1,000 photographs.

I invite you to see a slide show of photos from Cancer Connections at
