The Cancer Survivor: "At least he's Getting Out."


This work is by Gemma Rogers at the University of Canterbury. It's about her brother Pete and how he dealt with cancer. It uses humour, Facebook and self-portraits and is funny but also very real. Everything here is from Part I. Go here to see Part II.

I'm not sure I like the word victim!
Survivor sounds much cooler.

Survivor it is - not sure it's cool though and it's passive but without the pathos. How about chancer - that rhymes. But I'm sure you can do better that that...
