WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Like many artists photographer Angelo Merendino took the universal themes of pain and loss from his personal life and turned them into art. In 2011 Angelo's wife passed away after battling with breast cancer. Angelo documented his wife's journey with breast cancer through his photos.

In 2008, Jennifer Merendino was diagnosed with breast cancer. The cancer eventually spread to some of her lymph nodes. She underwent surgery, radiation and other treatments.

Angelo has received a bunch of support online and he explained that sharing the photographs has helped him grieve.

Angelo is currently showcasing the photographs online and in several art gallery shows. He is also taking the steps to publish a book."It's making something positive out of a really horrible experience," he said.

The series of photos titled "The Battle We Didn't Choose" can viewed online at MyWifesFightWith BreastCancer.com and Angelo's Youtube channel.
