Diseases (of any kind) are not only identifiable with diagnosis, cures, treatments and courses, but also with the human history of the afflicted person and of the suffering suffered by the patient and his family and friends. This sphere of empathy is something that is experienced daily in hospitals, clinics and private homes, it is not an easy topic to deal with but it is something we must not forget. The site Stat shows us some very touching photos taken by photographer Jalal Shamsazaran of his father, suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The photos show us the suffering but also the patience and love with which this family looked after their loved one. We suggest to look the photos on Statnews.com
