I am just an amateur photographer who took up taking pictures when I found out I had lymphoma cancer the first time in 1996. Photography helped me during the pain of chemotherapy and the pain that goes with it. I learned to see the world a whole new way. Cancer opened my eyes to the beauty all around us. I had another bout with breast cancer in 2006 which involved a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. So again the photography became a big part of my life and I am so thankful to God, my family, friends and photography because I have been in remission for 3-1/2 years now. And I still love photography. I believe you should find something everyday to be thankful for and never stop seeing the beauty of each and everyday. And now it is March 2015 and it seems that Cancer is rearing it’s ugly head once again. I have to go for more testing but it seems to be in my other breast now. I hope it is something else but if the cancer is back, I am up for another fight. I love life to much to give in.
