Widower publishes heartbreaking photo journal of wife's fight with breast cancer
Angelo Merendino has created a photo story of his life with late wife Jennifer to honour her memory and her impact on him.
The photographer documented their lives together, including his adored wife's battles with breast cancer.
His wife passed away in December 2011 after being re-diagnosed following a remission period.
Merendino has experienced cancer in his close family before, as both his mother and father have been diagnosed with
"Jen taught me to love, to listen, to give and to believe in others and myself. I’ve never been as happy as I was during this time."
See our gallery above with a selection of the photographs documenting the couples' story.
Merendino has released an e-book of their story, 'The Battle We Didn't Choose', and 50% of the profits from the e-book will go to the non-profit organisation 'The Love You Share'. The organisation, which Merendino founded, aims to provide financial assistance to women in need while they are recieving treatment for breast cancer.
"I cannot think of a better way to honor Jennifer's legacy than by helping others."
