As we all know CANCER SUCKS!!! But a lot of people just put the thought of it to the back of their mind and kinda forget about it.

This is my suggestion for a challenge -

Make an advertisement that encourages people to help the fight against cancer. Weather it be an ad for a certain research company or to a certain family member, friend, or even someone you don't know that is fighting this terrible disease. (advanced edit but can add text to your photo.)

Thoughts?

I think it would be great if we did challenges that helped raise awareness on such illnesses

For some, cancer is a very personal thing and it evokes emotions some aren't ready to deal with and others, don't want to deal with at this time.

I see what this means to so many people and I will agree with you all with this. I was just thinking this because my grandmother who is fighting cancer does not have much left in her. That being said I figure we could get some shots to try and get people to feel more willing to help the fight. But if the majority thinks this would not be the best thing then I will not fight for the challenge.

Sometimes those very emotions can spark some amazing art. I shot an image called Cancer a few years ago and to this day it's one of my faves. I had the same challenges you did but in the end I was happy I tackled the subject.

I shot a cancer benefit last weekend. I've slowly been processing the images & putting them in the my August whatever folder. Here's one ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/11854/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_901432.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/11854/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_901432.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. It is a very emotional issue. I don't know anyone who hasn't been touched by cancer in some form or another. I lost my grandfather to cancer.

I am living through the beast at this moment of my life. At least I am living it, not readying myself for death. Maybe one of the best challenge ideas to create the awareness sometimes lacking. We all know that cancer is something that happens to other people, not true?

I, however will not participate. It is, for me, too real. Too real to battle to rest, to get through each day. The fact that everything becomes an effort is my sad reality. Yet, because of friends like bergiekat, bearmusic and so many others I can bat another day.

I would love to see your view of cancer ;-)

Hope you get well soon PJ. With an attitude like yours, it'll be no time at all until you're up and about. See you soon. :)

As for the challenge suggestion, I can think of a billion other things I would rather photograph. Not that getting the message out isn't important, don't get me wrong.

A great Challenge Suggestion........

PJ, keep strong........Hope all is going well........A battle I am sure all of us hope you win.........

However, while you say it is too real, your first image is exactly what I would love to see it such a challenge, that image MAKES it real.......a person looking to the future............

The different images are something that I would love to see, your perception of Cancer..............
