Beautiful lines
Nothing to hide
Just a different person from the inside.

Warrior tough
Early bird moves
She stared it down (again and again) in her hospital shoes.

Don't count her in
But never count her out
"I'll travel the world!" she claims in her victory shout.

No corner desk will keep her
No tubes, tape, or glue
She's got too freakin' much living to do.

    "Erika is a beautiful woman with a caring heart, and her strength and honest humanity in the face of adversity have been an inspiration to me on a daily basis. Even as a stranger she offered me words of support when I needed them most, and now I am lucky to be able to call her a friend.

    She uses her camera not just to capture beauty - though she does that well - but to document the moment. That moment may be thought provoking, entertaining, adorable or painful - but all are windows into her world that I feel privileged to peek through."
