Via my fellow breast-cancer-traveler @hellojomo, who's waiting on word from her oncologists about her own cancer scans, sad news that a photographer, mom, sister, and fellow person with cancer has died. Her name was Jen Burgess Thompson, and she had ovarian cancer. This beautiful video portrait was created by her friend Benjamin Edwards.

    I’m sorry to hear that, and my prayers are with the friends and family she’s left behind.

    from reading her blog, it looks like she refused chemo and underwent IAT instead?   I wish more patients would read the studies behind the alternative treatments they pursue…particularly when those treatments are developed by zoologists.   best wishes and a heavy heart for her family.
