I’m Here #4

I'm Here #4

Holly G. was very welcoming when I came to her home to do this photo.  I knew she had a determination that went beyond words.  She said through a few tears, that she never felt sorry for the hand she was dealt (breast cancer). Fighting the cancer was all she wanted to do.  The battle against cancer was for her friends (many who came to her treatments), her family, and for those yet to come (grandchildren).

The resolve cancer survivors, or those still in the battle show, is so inspiring to me.  I think each person is a warrior thrown in the midst of a battle, and they have no choice but to put up a valiant fight for the tomorrows.
