Surgeons, parents and patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have been sharing their stories with Brandon Stanton, a photojournalist who started the internationally known Humans of New York blog. With an audience of more than 17 million, the stories reflecting the daily challenges in some healthcare facilities have struck a chord with the audience.
“Obviously these are not going to be easy stories to read,” wrote Stanton in the introduction to the series. “These are war stories. The treatment of cancer can be nearly as violent as the condition itself, and even the doctors will frame their efforts in terms of warfare. But the fight against pediatric cancer is uniquely tragic because the battlefield is the body of a child.”
