This was a special photo session. Over 22 years ago, Jack was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He defied the odds until November, 2017, when a large brain tumor was identified. His wife Barb contacted me shortly after for family photos. I was honored to take them and so glad they came to me. Since they came for their session, Jack has undergone chemo and radiation to help shrink the tumor.
The symptoms of Jack’s condition make it important that someone is with him at all times to make sure that he is safe and cared for. In order to meet Jack’s treatment schedule demands, as well as care for him as she said she would in her vows, Barb recently stopped working to be with Jack at all times. As you can imagine, the decision to stop working comes with financial burden. I am part of a group hosting and planning a benefit to help them pay for medical bills and offset the financial burden of Barb not working and, more importantly, to show them how much they are loved and supported.
