My sister Mindee called me crying one day. Her heart was broken. Her friend Angela had been told she had cancer again, only this time she was told her cervical cancer was terminal. She needed to start in chemotherapy again and she knew her long, blonde hair would soon be gone. Mindee asked if I would take pictures of her prior to the treatment that would claimed her hair so her kids could have some recent pictures of her, in case the miracle she needed didn’t happen. I talked with Angela and she wanted to go somewhere girlie and spunky to reflect her fun personality, but it needed to be indoors because of the cold. We ended up shooting at My Dear Lizzie in Highland. What a fun store and a good backdrop for Angela.
Well it’s been some time since this shoot and I’m happy to report Angela got her miracle. She fought cervical cancer again and was just told yesterday that her CT scans were clear; the cancer is gone. She’ll continue to monitor it with her doctors, but miracles do happen, Angela is living proof. What an inspiration you are Angela!
Here’s an article about efforts to spare medicaid treatments last February.
