Man uses photo blog to honour late wife's fight with cancer

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – It’s the battle they fought, but didn’t choose. A man has chosen a unique way to chronicle his wife’s fight with cancer.

The blog is called “The Battle We Didn’t Choose” and is a series of pictures taken by Angelo Merendino of Ohio, from right after his wife was diagnosed to after her death.

“Jennifer and I felt that if people saw this — mainly, our family and friends, that was all we were doing this for in the beginning — we thought that if they saw what things were actually like for us, then maybe they would have a better understanding.”

He says the photos are about their day-to-day lives during that period.

“It’s also something that shows a woman who was determined to live every minute, even though she was facing her own mortality.”
