The #teamnatachu photo essay chonicles the diagnosis and treatment of my husband, Alan Natachu with stage IIIb Colorectal Cancer from January 2016 forward. Our family has chosen to share these photos via instagram and through media as a means to connect with other young families, patients, and survivors dealing with cancer and raise awareness of the increase in CRC among adults under 40. All photos were taken with my iPhone and processed with simple apps.
