LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A special book to benefit the fight against breast cancer is now on sale.

Journey for the Cure” started as Kathy Rappaport’s vision but has become so much more for the women photographed. They’ve built friendships and support that will last a lifetime.

Rappaport, a photographer, wanted to show the world the faces of breast cancer.

“I see beauty in everyone I photograph and I wanted them to see that beauty because once you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, you’re on a journey for the rest of your life,” said Rappaport.

Some of the women photographed are breast cancer survivors, while others are patients. The book is meant to showcase their life after, or for some, as they fight breast cancer.

“It’s a special, special book. And you can see the joy and the love of life from every single page,” Leanne Nakanishi, a breast cancer survivor, told CBS2’s Lisa Sigell.

The women depicted in the book are women of all ages and of different backgrounds as breast cancer does not discriminate. One in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, Sigell reported.

All of the proceeds from the book will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Los Angeles County chapter.

To buy the book and donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, LA Chapter, visit Flash Frozen Photography Inc. online.
