“There I was, a healthy, active, marathon running, mountain biking, outdoor enthusiast,coming to grips with the shock of a lifetime. Being told you have cancer is a traumatic experience, and accepting that reality was one of the hardest obstacles to overcome. I learned just how relentless I truly am, never giving up, facing my diagnosis and treatment head on with resilience and staying positive. You know the expression…life’s too short to drink cheap wine, well life’s too short for a lot of things and you don’t get do overs.”
– Bill, Cancer Center patient

Putting a Face on CancerSM

Putting a Face on Cancer is a photographic project incorporating survivors of all types of cancer who reside in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado and beyond. It is the hope of each of the participants that, through the sharing of our faces and quotes, we can pass along the strength and resilience, which we all hold dear, to those who explore this collection. Our common experience with the diagnosis of cancer, the prospect and survival of treatment and the reality of living with a dealt disease, makes us a unique band of sober and appreciative individuals. By showing up as who we are now, we hope that others may find their own reservoirs of strength to face cancer and move beyond it.

Our mission is exposure, healing, community and spirit. As our survivorship numbers grow and our stories repeat themselves, it becomes hard to imagine a world where the prognosis and diagnosis of cancer is automatically perceived to be a death sentence which one bears alone, in fear and desperation. Cancer is most definitely a wake-up call and a journey of pain and mortal questioning, but these things are the very stuff of life, and survival for any period of time, becomes life on a higher and richer level. We are here to openly and enthusiastically share with those who are facing a similar path and with those who love someone who is about to walk that path…we are here to be who we are…products of a life changing experience…survivors with gifts…livers of life.

“It has been eight months since my diagnosis, and my cancer is gone. There were hard times, but I do not remember them. There were painful times, but I cannot recall them. Tears roll down my face constantly; not from pain, not from sadness, not from my desperation but from a place of love and thankfulness for the care and love I received throughout the journey. I still have some hurdles to cross in my recovery, but my heart is bigger and I feel more love then I ever have before.” -Tessa, Cancer Center patient
