Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Late in 2002 British actress Lynn Redgrave learned that she had breast cancer. After sharing the news with her family she made the decision to undergo surgery, followed by a months-long regimen of chemotherapy and radiation. Together with her daughter Annabel Clark, then a photography student, she determined to record the experience through journal entries and Annabel's photographs, creating a compelling document of treatment and recovery with an unprecedented level of intimacy. With heart-rending honesty, in bittersweet moments as beautiful as they are difficult, the photographs and journal entries illustrate a personal journey through the leading cancer diagnosed in women today. An essay by the well-known writer and medical authority Dr. Barron Lerner provides further insight into cancer; where we were twenty years ago in awareness, where we are now, and how far we still have to go to create awareness, offer information and provide resources to patients and survivors, and to spur further research for women's health.

Synopsis:

With heart-rending honesty, in bittersweet moments as beautiful as they are difficult, yet with humor and optimism throughout, Annabel Clark’s photographs and her mother Lynn Redgrave’s journal entries illustrate a mother-daughter journey through the leading cause of cancer diagnosed in women today.

Photographs are sensitive and expressive of all of the emotions involved in this difficult journey taken by mother and daughter. I like the emphasis on sharing the experience. Thank you for documenting your very personal experiences.
