This is my brother, Jake. At the time of these photos, he is 24 years old. In April 2006 he was diagnosed with testicular cancer which metasticised to his liver, lungs, kidneys....After a long battle including chemotherapy the doctors finally told him that there was nothing more they could do. He is now in hospice. The majority of these photos were taken the night he had one of his last blood transfusions, and the days after. So many people expect us to be dragging our faces around in mourning. Instead, as a family, we had fun. Included in the photos are some family members, nurses and other caregivers that helped us so much, and his girlfriend, Tiffany, that we consider a member of the family as well. In taking these pictures in the last days of my brothers life, i would like to show those that look at them what love and family can be like. We chose to laugh and joke and play and have a good time. We chose to celebrate.
