USAGE OF THE EXHIBITION'S PHOTOS AND TEXTS.
In order to spread the word about our exhibition we encourage anyone to talk about it on their social profiles as well as on blogs, websites etc. If you plan to talk about our exhibition thanks so much and we'd love to know about it so we can share your article/comment. Feel free to drop us a line either via email at email@example.com or DM us through our Facebook page.
We do our best to keep an eye on what's being written, posted and shared by third parties but with the Internet being so vast it's kinda impossible to keep track or be aware of any third part publication or share so we are not responsible for third parts' usage of the exhibition's photos and/or texts, including eventual translations.
It's absolutely forbidden to use our exhibition and/or the material in a harmful and/or disrespectful way towards anyone.
Who are we? Our charity's aim is to bring young people with cancer together as well as being a place where they can share their stories and make their voices heard. From 2019, we are going to focus a lot on different initiatives such as the photograph exhibition to bring much needed childhood and teenage cancer awareness. Learn more
The international on-line photograph exhibition "(IN)VISIBLES - voices of childhood cancer fighters" contains photos and words from kids or young people who have or have had cancer and from their families.
You can see all the picts and texts on-line for free. The exhibition's aim is to help those who never had to experience such a reality and the media to understand what it really means for a child or young person and their families to receive a cancer diagnosis and eventually to rebuild their lives after the end of treatments.
The material has been sent to us directly by the young people and their loved ones. We started to ask who'd be interested in this project in middle November 2018 and in a little more than a month we already received enough material to be able to launch the exhibition on 7th January 2019. At the moment, participants are from: Italy, the UK, Switzerland and Venezuela. The material shows what it means for these families to have to fight such a battle: tears, smiles, laughs, hospital stays, relapses... every image tells a story and every story is unique. Some of the kids and young people in the exhibition are still on treatment, others finished treatment and others sadly passed away and this is also a way to honour their briefs, courageous and important lives.
As mentioned before, our aim through this exhibition is to bring much needed childhood and teenage cancer awareness; not something we hear once in a while in the news, but a costant information flow so that everyone can get at least a bit informed about it and doesn't have to wait under this happens to their child in order to care and become aware.
Childhood cancer is not just one disease, with this word we mean dozens of different diseases. We want to shine a light on the difficulties of those lucky enough to survive; beside the psychological, social and emotional difficulties to come back to a "normal" life often those who survive have to deal with short or long term side effects such as infertility, heart damage, blindness, cognitive problems etc.
Childhood cancer is still considered "rare", that's way pharmaceutical companies don't invest in it. They don't really see a profit in this. This means that many times kids have to endure harsh treatments that may be decades old and that will give them side effects. We need to fund childhood cancer research in order to develop new, less harsh treatments especially made for kids, teens and young people, because they are not "smaller adults". These innovative drugs would be able to not only find cures but also to be less harsh, preventing kids to have to go through horrible side effects.
The exhibition is also a tool to empower these youngesters and their loved ones; here, everyone from every Country in the world can make his or her voice heard. We were blown away by the quick response from the people who are taking part in the exhibition's launch because it shows their need and urge to help others to understand them and their situations better.
So please have a look at the photos, read the texts and then click on the buttons on your left to get informed or to make a donation that will help us to keep our programs alive and to do our part in funding childhood cancer research.
Thanks so much to all these amazing young people and families who took part in this exhibition's launch and to those who will join us during the rest of the year; without you, this project would have never been possible. And thanks to YOU, for dedicating your time to our exhibition and cause.
