Among all the historical dates regarding the cancer, the most important one for me is December 23th, 2015. That day my family suffered a severe blow. My wife, Manuela, was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. The cancer had an ability to extend from 95% The first thing I did was kiss my wife and take a picture of that moment with my mobile phone. Karkinos wants to show the human, intimate and familiar side of the woman who has a Triple Negative breast cancer. Thanks to this work, a new research project has been initiated for the prevention of breast cancer in Spain.
