Monica Buluma, 27 years old, was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in 2010. Being a cancer survivor came with some help from the Faraja Cancer Support Trust, a charitable trust founded in 2010 with the mission to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families by providing information, emotional and practical support, counselling, and complimentary therapies to cancer patients and their carers.
This image is part of an on-going personal project looking at the rise of cancer in Africa, that it is not just a stereo-typical western disease but because of diet, stress and environmental changes it is now very much now becoming a part of African life.
