Utterly mesmerizing and painfully sad, this moving photography series documents the struggle of a mother dealing with cancer and losing the battle.

The series revolves around Carolynne St. Pierre and her families ordeal. When St. Pierre was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer, she knew she wouldn't make it, so she decided she would rather go peacefully surrounded by her family.

Oakland-based documentary photographer Preston Gannaway documented the family with such rawness and sensitivity that he won a Pulitzer Prize for his photography series.

The loving mother died at age 44, but her story still lives on through this series, which is a beautiful documentation of what terminal illness does to family life.

The 'Remember Me' photography series documents a family going through both tragedy and love in such an intertwined way and will touch you in such a profound way.
