Patients (Patience)

Amber Jackson's avatar Amber Jackson

The eyes may be the doorway to the soul...but the hands are the pages in your storybook. They clench, they clap, they brush away tears and hold the hands of loved ones. These photos are portaits of my Cancer patient's hands during chemotherapy treatments. They are candid, and display a multitude of emotions. Often, they betray the shields people try to erect and allow us to see how they really feel. My hope is this collection of photos will allow the public to experience the many emotions of a Survivor.
