Picturing Survival

Eli Kahn, 6. Heather Brogdon, 12. Keith Patrick, 20. Three youngsters. Three backgrounds. One disease: cancer. The other common denominators--bravery, loving families, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore--helped them and their families get through the battle. Harry Connolly documented Eli's and Heather's and Keith's lives for three years. The result is "Fighting Chance: Journeys Through Childhood Cancer" (Woodholme House, 1998), a photographic record of the hospital rooms, the treatments, the pain, the smiles, the tears--the survival.
