A star is born


In 2007 Vibe was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Due to the location of the tumor, it was not possible to surgically remove it. Instead, Vibe received 30 radiation treatments, four chemotherapy treatments, three high dosage chemotherapy treatments and a number of experimental chemotherapy treatme¬nts. In January 2009 Vibe lost the fight against cancer. At the time of her death she was seven years old.
Vibe’s father Michael often said that he would catch the stars in the sky for Vibe if she asked him to. Now he tells Vibe’s sister Laerke that Vibe herself has become one of the stars in the sky.
Children get other types of cancer than adults. For example Leukemia is the most common form of cancer with children, while they almost never get lung cancer or breast cancer. Brain tumors are the most common type of tumors with children. Every year there are around 40 new cases of brain tumors with children in Denmark. Vibe was one of them.


The expostion consists of 30 color prints, 30x40 cm.
