Photog helps cancer survivors heal emotionally with underwater shoot


A photographer, who is on a quest to help cancer survivors rebuild their self-esteem, recently conducted an amazing underwater photo shoot for six such survivors.

Erena Shimoda told CBS News that after her father died in a car accident, she was physically and emotionally broke and she had to learn how to deal with herself.

But by helping other people, she was able to overcome her painful experience, Shimoda said.

Shimoda had started an Indiegogo campaign and collaborated with to raise 17,000 dollars so she could shoot 10 cancer survivors underwater.

However, the money collected was just over 10,000 dollars.

But Shimoda decided to go ahead with the project, believing that if she could learn how her subjects overcame their health problems, she too could learn how to cope with her new reality.
