Tristan is a 6 year old boy. The name Tristan means rebellion.
Something that describes the power of this little boy. For Tristan
has leukemia (blood cancer). And is being treated at the
hospital. The picture I have taken in connection with an
exhibition I'm working on - about children with cancer. I
followed Tristan a few hours and gained insight into his
personalety and his own fight against the cancer. Tristan
brightened up with his majestic look and pride. Something I feel
tells atteverything about Tristans great attitude.old
