Cancer Sucks!

This is way overdue, it has been almost a year since I found out my mom has lung cancer and I'm still at a loss of words.  To be honest I'm still not sure how I feel about it.  I mean I'm sad as to what can happen, it wasn't too long ago I lost my one of my sisters to cancer and that didn't really hit me until much further down the road and then it hit hard.

I"m not justifying why I have or should I say why I don't any emotions towards this, but I that is my beast to carry and get through.

This post is about showing the love two people can have for each other while going through a very hard time in their lives.  I've been wanting to take some pictures of my parents for some time now and it sucks it takes my mom getting cancer that gets me off my ass to get it done, but either way we made plans to get out for some portraits.  My mom is still a little weak from chemo and was a trooper while taking these portraits.  Prior to taking these shots I asked my mom if she wouldn't mind taking a shot or two without her wig, one of the side effects of having cancer and chemo and without hesitation she said she didn't mind at all.  So with that my daughter, mom, and dad went to a local park to get some shots.

Other than the lack of hair, you'd never know she had cancer.  What I see is a couple who love each other very much and are living their life and not letting what's been put in front of them take their happiness away.

Keep the Love
