"To call this brave and selfless is not enough. It's difficult for photojournalists to document someone else's struggle with a disease. We do it when we have to or when we think a story needs to be told. But to photograph your own story about cancer is nothing less than inspiring." Jessica LeighDirectorJessica Leigh Photography

COURAGE: A SELF-PORTRAIT

Article / Scripps Blog / Athens, OH / May 2010
"I've decided that the most remarkable aspect of John's work is that it can touch a life so deeply that that life itself is changed. One simple but powerful photograph helped one cancer patient endure 15 hours of brain surgery. I can't help but think that John's films will inspire others to beat back any doubts they have about their own chances for surviving cancer." Robert StewartDirectorOhio University Scripps School of Journalism
