Father Captures Heartbreaking Pictures Of His Daughter To Show True Side Of Childhood Cancer
As a photographer, it is quite important to capture the realistic side of a picture and truth of a situation. It becomes too easy to capture the moment of joy or a joyful life whilst neglecting the torture, but it becomes the hardest when a father (photographer) decides to capture the searing pain his daughter is bearing.
This is what a brave father did. He shares a disturbing picture of his daughter battling cancer, in order to portray her sad circumstances and to tell the world the shocking truth of childhood cancer.

…he decided to share the picture of his child that writhes in agony to show the world the true face of cancer.
Andy even wrote the blog about Jessica’s illness and added…
“This is the true face of cancer, my baby girl’s blood vessels protruding from beneath her skin, a solitary tear running down her cheek, her body stiffened and her face contorted in pain.”
Jessica’s mum Nicki Pendergast said…
“We are really struggling and it’s hard to know that we’re going to lose my daughter. We have been told it is going to be a couple of weeks and every day we take as the last.”
The father has uploaded this heart-breaking black and white image.
