These Inspiring Portraits Capture The Emotional Fight Against Cancer
"Halfway through the shoot, she told me that she was about to lose her hair from chemo."
Photographer Robert Houser's captivating portraits show women from all walks of life facing cancer head-on with faith and determination.
Some pictures capture women during and after treatment, while others prove that the visible effects of chemotherapy can never strip a women of her true beauty.
Robert talked to BuzzFeed about how this project started for him:
"Years ago I was photographing a young woman for a magazine story. Halfway through the shoot, she told me that she was about to lose her hair from chemo...
...I offered to photograph her during treatment, but I could tell she wanted to get through chemo and try to put it behind her."
