La Nueva Vida Project also includes reconstructed archives of three women’s encounters with illness, the medical-industrial complex and dying. Archived documents include selections from Vida’s available medical records following a diagnosis of cancer (2003-2004); Gita’s private and public written communication from the time she was informed of her sister’s illness to shortly past Vida’s death (2004-2005); and Gita’s selections of writing by Gamba Adisa (Audre Lorde) from her 1984 The Cancer Journals.
