I'll give you a different reaction. I am currently going through radiation therapy and chemo therapy after the removal of a colerectal tumor. So, my perspective is a bit different.
Every day I go in for radiation therapy. There is a group of us who arrive at about the same time in the waiting room. We have sort of become friends, a little team, going through it together. We joke a lot. We laugh. We like those treating us and we all have a positive spirit. When I go in for infusion therapy, changing my chemo pump, there is a similar camaraderie, friendship, joking, etc.
I have no idea what is going on with this man sitting in this chair. We may all make an assumption, presume a story, which is probably wrong.
If I were to photograph folks in a waiting room who are about to go to their radiation treatment, I would capture the more real life coping with what fate has put in their laps, and mostly with good spirits, strength, friendship, etc.
