Or, would you accept the situation and count your blessings? That's what Beyoncé's official photographer, Londoner Yosra El-Essway, has been doing ever since she was diagnosed with stage four oesophageal cancer.
El-Essway was only six weeks into her dream gig as Beyoncé's official tour photographer when the diagnosis hit. In the video that Beyoncé's team posted about El-Essway, the photographer talks about this period: "I have never felt more grateful in my life. This is a gift to me. This period is happening for me, not to me, to the point [where] I don't even feel sick. I feel incredibly, incredibly blessed."
And, the best bit? El-Essway recently published on her Facebook page that her tumour has shrunk by 30% after only three rounds of chemotherapy. Brava, Ms. El-Essway, we're with you every step of the way. (Daily Mail)
