The Cancer project - final image

Real life

 

*** UPDATE ** September 3rd, 2008

After removing another cancer spot from her lung and lumph nodes in April, so far, the doctors don't think the cancer has spread. They found a small spot on her colon and on her lymph node in her chest, but so far, one has turned up as nothing, and the other in her chest - we are still waiting for the next 3 month mark, but she's feeling and looking wonderful!

  

This portrait is of my mom, who I asked to be part of The Cancer Project since she is a cancer survivor of a rare form of melanoma. She had a chunk taken out of her back which I think is the most beautiful badge of courage I have ever seen.

 

I think this is the image I'm going to submit. I hope she likes it ;-)

 

She finds out her results this Friday (she's worried that the cancer might have spread because the last time, they found a spot on her lung) she's a fighter and I know that no matter what, she will pull through, but please keep us in your thoughts.

 

February 28, 2008 will feel like the longest day ever...

 

more of the "woman in the mirror" to come...
