Late in 2002 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, she and her daughter Annabel Clark, then a photography student in New York, 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. 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 the disease: where we were twenty years ago in awareness, where we are now, and how far we still have to go.
