Life goes on

Although cancer campaigns on awareness are abundant, it seems that most people are disinterested, jaded and even turn away from having any contact with the ill, with a "thank God it's not me" attitude. The only people who really actively participate in this macabre club and feel all of the repercussions are those who are sick, the health providers and caretakers, and the very closest of family and friends. After the initial shock, people go on with their lives, while the sick and their crew are left to deal with the hardship. "And life goes on without me" - Pen drawing, mixed media - Dec. 2011
