Boy with cancer in Guatemala

The Washington Post published a photo essay on a young Guatemalan boy’s experience with cancer as part of the documentary film project How I Live, which is advised by Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Global HealthInitiative. As part of the project, Photographer Scott Woodward has been looking into children’s cancer in resource-limited countries. Although childhood cancer in the developed world posts overall survival rates of about 80 percent, in low- and middle-income countries overall survival is only about 20 percent.
