Cancer affects millions of individuals, families and loved ones all over the planet. Fortunately, people are winning the battle every day. This collection of photos shows people one year after undergoing chemotherapy (or other cancer treatment) as a way to focus on the celebration of life and the achievement of survival. We intend for these photos to manifest the bravery, endurance, grit and grace that brought each person to the moment of their image, which they now so generously share with all of us.
Our hope is to support those feeling the overwhelming anxiety, stress, and pain of cancer. We want to help them keep an eye on the future. We are here to remind them in their worst of days that better ones lie ahead.
Supporting one another and sharing our burden is the ultimate human purpose. Please help us by sharing your photo and sharing this website with others.

This collection of photos shows people approximately one year after undergoing chemotherapy (or other cancer treatment) coming out on the other side and living their lives to the fullest after their battle with cancer.
I'm a 45 year old male who is days away from 5 years free of cancer. I was dx'd with stage 3 rectal cancer. I deal with other health problems as well. When I was dx'd I found a calendar of survivors & happened to find one month of a gentleman who shared the same surgeries, colostomy bag as I did. I hope to pay it forward and that one person will see my pic and perhaps help somebody who is just starting their battle. Ty for the opportunity.

A trip to Eastern Europe 5 months after treatment. Felt great to be traveling again after a year long of cancer treatment. There is fun after cancer.
I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's in November, 1976 (Senior year in High School). I was originally given a 30 percent chance to just survive the surgery. Being a teenager, I was stubborn and refused to give in. I had too much life left to live. In this picture are my wife and 4 kids. My attitude towards life (and skill of my Oncologist) allowed me to meet the love of my life, and she bore these 4 greats kids for us. Since this photo was taken, I have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. No sweat!
I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2009. 5 years cancer free! At the NOCC Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer with my wonderful team. We walk to increase awareness and to beat this terrible disease. I am very lucky to have a great team including one team member whose aunt is a 20 + year Ovarian Cancer survivor!
