Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 14-year-old cancer patient, sits in an armchair whilst receiving a hydration intravenous drip after a chemotherapy session in her room at Rainbow Ward at Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre in Mater Dei Hospital, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta. Reuters photographer Darrin Zammit Lupi documented his daughter's fight for her life against Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare and extremely aggressive form of bone cancer, made even worse by a global pandemic that brought paranoia over the possibility of infecting her compromised immune system, anxiety over medical supply chains and, worst of all, separation at a time when togetherness was what his family needed most.

'Chip' Charles Eichenberg, 72, excavates anthracite coal from a strip mine in New Castle, Pennsylvania. In the battleground state of Pennsylvania, miners continue to support Trump despite failing to deliver the coal renaissance he promised. Eichenberg believes Trump's tax cuts and easing of regulations can boost the coal and steel industries again. Eichenberg, who operates a massive machine to excavate anthracite coal from a strip mine in St. Clair, said he did not vote for Trump in 2016 but plans to this time around. "I didn't think he had enough experience," Eichenberg said. "But that proved to be wrong. He got the economy going." Picture taken July 13, 2020. REUTERS/Dane Rhys

Eddie Correia, 36, an inmate from Warner Creek Correctional Facility who is working as a firefighter as part of a state-run program, shows his tattoos as he poses for a photograph, on the sidelines of the Brattain Fire in Paisley, Oregon, September 21, 2020. Correia says he survived a birdshot from a shotgun. "This gives us a different opportunity, rather than going back to something that we already know, which is guns, gangs, violence and drugs," said Correia, who is about halfway through his six-year sentence for an assault conviction. He wants to continue firefighting after he is released from jail, and said the camaraderie and sense of purpose "have helped me deal with a lot of my own demons." REUTERS/Adrees Latif
