In January 2018 I was diagnosed with lung cancer. I decided to make selfies at all stages of treatment. This is my story in pics. I didn't know what was coming (#1) Hair during chemotherapy fall out. I shaved my head bald before (#2) Chemotherapy was the first stage in my case (#3) I was bald and thin. All the time I wanted to hide under water (#4) After the surgery. Inhalations, oxygen, breathing with a special "toy (#5) The seam was not healing during a long time (#6) 25 radiotherapy sessions. The final blow. (#7) It's me in August. I won. I came back to my work of photographer (#8)
