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
