Spring 2015 Conquest Magazine for MD Anderson

Technical portraits, documentary photojournalism, illustration - the latest issue of Conquest Magazine put me to the test. 

I met Meisha Brown, who was treated at the center as a child and is now a cancer advocate pursuing a Ph.D. in health education, studying chronic disease and health disparites research at Texas A&M University. She hopes one day to be an MD Anderson scientist working with other cancer patients who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

I did an on-location shoot with a patient who was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at 21, a much younger age than the usual age range for diagnosis.

I lit up Dr. Sam Hanash who has made it his mission to find a way to detect lung cancer in its earliest stage, when it’s still curable.

My favorite by far, though, had to be the Little Yogis, a program for young cancer patients to practice stretching and breathing techniques.
