We laugh, we cry, we talk, we shout, we moan, we groan, we sing, we scream, we yell and some of us yodel - we use our throat to make those sounds.
Imagine by chance rubbing just behind your ear/neck area and feeling a little bump, one that feels so insignificant you are certain it's probably nothing but you decide to get it checked. The shock comes when the results are in and you hear the words - you have cancer, throat cancer. Keith Hern is a photographer who captures moments through his lens.

The journey of cancer comes with the uncertainty of the outcome. A cancer patient has so many things to face and the major focus is on making it through the therapies that lay ahead. However, there is also the debt that many face which can be an added stress.
After reading the story of Arijit Guha which was so compelling, it moved me and I knew it had to be shared. The need to understand the finances is one that really needs attention and hopefully helps us to give to organizations that offers free services/assistance to those with cancer. The insurance company Aetna, reached a certain point and did not want to cover the costs of his treatments but Arijit was not letting them off so easily.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
